Focus Scripture for the Day
Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.
Psalms 119:105 AMP
This passage is taken out of very long chapter of the book of Psalms. The chapter itself is filled with much wisdom, and insight. If you can read through the passage, please do! There are many jewels within. Verse 105 happens to be one of those passages that is recited or quoted, quite often.
What does it mean, and how does it relate to us?
The WORD of God is compared to, or likened as a lamp, as well as the light. Light being a source of energy, and the lamp, as a light fixture,
The lamp normally generates light, or gives energy to the room or place, for the purpose of seeing clearly.
The light provides clarity, and makes things visible.
In this passage the lamp is applied to the feet for the purpose of seeing clearly and the light is applied to the path, to shine truth unto the situation or circumstance. The word of God is a figurative lamp that generates a light for the journey ahead, and a light unto a figurative pathway. It is a book that is unlike any book! It is a book that provides clarity, discernment as well as guides you on the path that God laid out for you.
I Can attest to that! A book that has completely turned my life around 180 degrees. Before God, and his WORD I was a mess, seeking for direction, once I tasted his goodness, there was nothing like it.
I hope you have been inspired and empowered to study his Word even more. Until next time!
Yours truly, Lena
