DAY 20 THURSDAY: AUGUST 2020

GOD’S WORD IS LIGHT IN LIFE!

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path (Psalm 119:105).

God’s Word is light that illuminates the ways of man in life. Without the Word of God, man walks and dwells in darkness. It is the Word of God that leads the way of man to his fulfilled destiny in life. That is why God’s Word is a mirror of life and a compass that charts the way of man to his fulfilled destiny in life. In the opening text, the Bible says that Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that the Word of God is indeed light to his path in life. The Word of God is light to a man’s paths and ways in life. A life that is devoid of God’s Word of direction must surely crash in life forever.

The Word of God gives light and understanding to the simple in life. That is why the Bible says in Psalm 119:130, “The entrance of Your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.” Therefore, whenever a Christian learns to engage himself in God’s Word constantly, he receives wisdom and divine understanding in life. Whoever has the Word of God has light and understanding in life. Moreover, such a person is full of God’s wisdom and knowledge in life. He can never walk in darkness because such a one is full and surrounded by God’s light which is God’s Word in life. God’s Word is indeed light that penetrates the thick darkness with full capacity of leading man’s paths and ways to life forever.

God’s Word is God Himself (John 1:1); and in Him there is no darkness at all in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in 1 John 1:5, “This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.” In fact, it is absolutely the Word of God that brings light into man’s paths and ways in life. God is the Author of light, and His Word is the light to man’s path and destiny in life. When man walks outside of God’s Word, he is treading the path of darkness and goes astray in life. Living without God’s Word is living in total darkness full of pains and void of direction in life forever.

Daily Tip: Every Christian should use God’s Word as his mirror of life and compass to chart his ways to destiny’s fulfillment in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life” (John 8:12).
