The unfolding of Your Word(s) gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.

-Psalm 119:130

 

This is a picture from a card my Mother sent me many years ago!  She said inside, …to my daughter who loves the lighthouses! And I still do today! I like to think of God’s Word as a lighthouse to my soul and my understanding. A lighthouse by design sits near the edge of the sea, mostly on high ground if available. It signals danger to ships and boats at night when they are sailing in dangerous waters or near rocky shores, when water covers the danger! 

 

The light of God’s Word is like that for us, as well. How often do we blindly sail near to danger, and realize it just at the right time. Hear that still small voice saying “this is the way…walk in it!” (Isaiah 30:21). Just like that strong beam of a lighthouse can make a sailor steer away from rocky shores, away from danger, so can the light of God’s Word guide us in daily life. The catch is…..we need to know what is in His Word and how He guides us. We find that by spending time in Bible study, and reading Scripture asking God for understanding, greater wisdom and faith. (James 1:5 If you need wisdom-if you want to know what God wants you to do-ask Him and He will gladly tell you. He will not resent your asking!)

 

What a mighty and faithful and loving God we have. There is nothing we can ever do to make Him turn away from His own. Let His Word be the light to steer you away from those rocky shores that can be so tempting to explore! 

Prayer for Today

 

Holy Merciful and Faithful God, be that “still small voice”, that “tap on the shoulder” that gives us correction when we need it. Open our spiritual eyes and ears to “hear” Your voice and know Your leading. In the precious name of Your Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ, Amen.
