GUIDED BY HIS LIGHT

SUN FEB 26 2023

GUIDED BY HIS LIGHT – Pastor Chris

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path (Psalm 119:105).

The Bible describes the Word as “…the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world” (John 1:9). That means no one has an excuse to stumble, falter or fail in life because we’re all privileged to receive guidance and direction from the Lord.

No wonder Jesus said “…I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life” (John 8:12). Then, David points out something remarkable in Psalm 119:130“The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.”

These thoughts highlight the importance of light and direction from the Lord, through His Word. His Word is light. If you’ve ever attempted to find your way in the dark, you’d agree it wasn’t a smooth sail. You probably bumped into objects or obstacles that you couldn’t see as a result of the darkness.

Moreover, if you were journeying in the dark, you wouldn’t know when you arrive at your destination or hit a crossroads. So think about it: if natural light is that important, what do you think of God’s light—His Word?

It’s one of the reasons you must know the Word for yourself. Without the Word of God, your decisions will be made in darkness, and the decisions that are made in darkness can only produce more darkness, making the person’s life a web of uncertainties, confusion and utter frustration.

In 1 John 1:7, we’re enjoined to walk in the light as He (God) is in the light. In His light, we see light (Psalm 36:9); our paths are illuminated to see and get rid of every obstacles and encumbrances as we journey through life. Hallelujah!
