Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105 (ESV)
Light In Darkness
You live in a world filled with darkness. Your life is under constant and unrelenting attack by the thoughts and opinions and values of this sin broken world. If you are not careful you will think and speak and act like everyone else in the world. This is not my plan for you. What is your plan for me? I want you to shine like a star in the universe. I want you to be a bright light that draws others to me. I want you to be able to know my will and walk in my ways. I want you to be able to stand against temptation and fight against evil. I want you to love and follow and serve me with all your heart and mind and soul and strength. How does this sound to you? It sounds very good to me. It is the desire of my heart. Is the goal of my life. That is very good.
None of what I want for you will be fully realized unless you meet with me daily in my word. It is my word that will change your heart and transform your mind. It is my word that will guard and guide the course of your life. It is my word that will shine a bright light on your path through life. It is my word that My Spirit will use to fight in you, with you, for you and through you. It is my word that My Spirit will use to make you able to stand against temptation and fight against evil. You have heard it said that the sword of the Spirit is the word of God? Yes, I know that well. Be very sure that you will often leave yourself defenseless without my word dwelling in your richly. Of that, I am certain. That is very good.
How will you allow my word to guard and guide your life? How will you allow me to use my word to change your heart and transform your mind? How will you allow my word to dwell in you richly so that you will shine brightly like a star in the universe for me? There is only one answer to your question. What is that? I will meet with you daily in your word. I will set aside a time and place to meet with you. Meeting with you will be the priority of my life. I will listen attentively to you. I will carry your word with me throughout my day. I will allow you to use your word to do its work in my life. That will be very good.
Lord, I know this world is full of darkness. I also know I need your word to shed light on my path through life. Daily, I will meet with you in your word. Use your word to guard and guide my life. Use your word to help me to know your will and walk in your ways. Amen
