Psalm 119:105, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”
It is a wonder how we managed to find our way before GPS apps. Prior to that, we had to pour over a hard-to-fold, clumsy map and mark out the course for our destination, pulling over to review it with each unfamiliar turn. But now, we simply type in an address and follow the voice prompts. Wouldn’t it be great if hearing God’s voice and direction was so easy?
While it may not be through directional verbal prompts, God speaks clearly to us through his Word, the Bible. It’s our guide for his protection, correction, inspection, and direction. As we read the Bible, we can be assured that the Author is there with us, guiding us and bringing to light something new each time we read it. That’s why it’s called the “living, breathing Word of God.”
The Bible is key to hearing God’s voice in our lives. It’s like a text message straight from him. But if we don’t read it, we won’t receive it. When we do read it, it becomes a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. Let his Word light up your world!
The Bible is so easily accessible now more than ever. In addition to the FC app, you can download The Bible app so you have easy access to Scripture wherever you go. Before you begin to read, pray that God will open your mind, eyes, and heart to what he wants to tell you from his Word.
Heavenly Father, thank you for your Word, the Bible. Please open my heart, mind, and eyes to grasp what you want to say to me as I read through it. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
