Looking For Direction In Life?

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


Looking for direction in life? Confused about the next step? Concerned about which path to take and which one not to take? If you answered “yes” God has a Word for you on this morning. 




The “Word of God” is our compass in life. It is also our guide, our helper, our deliverer, our peace,  our joy, our redemption and our everlasting promise. 


The Psalmist of this text declares that the “Word of God” is a lamp unto his feet and a light unto his path. 


The light of God’s Word makes things clear and visible so that we will not trip and fall into the traps and snares of the enemy. 


When God’s Word becomes a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path, He leads us in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. 


The Word of God is the Christian life support, our sustaining power, our oxygen tank, our feeding tube, our guiding light and our eternal hope of glory. 


As Christians, we must daily search the Word of God, study it, believe it and obey it for indeed it is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path. 


Without the light of God’s Word we will continue to stumble in the dark. We will never make it to our destination because we will not be able to see our way out of where we are. It is the light of God’s Word that illuminates our path. 


How are you keeping your lamps burning? I can only hope and pray that it is by the leading of God’s Word alone.

To walk in the light we must enter the small gate and stay on the narrow path. Matthew 7:13-14 “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it”.  


Avoiding darkness involves the daily choices of choosing to walk in the light of God’s Word. 


Walking in the light means disconnecting from the darkness of situations, people, places and things that hinders clear vision. 


It is the Word of God that has the power unto salvation. 


It is the Word of God that has lead all of us who are saved, out of darkness into God’s marvelous light. 


The Word of God is a guiding light! Are you being lead by it? Or, are you still walking in darkness? 


Thank you Lord for your guiding light, for indeed it is a light unto my path. 


Still looking for direction in life? Look no further! 


I pray this opens your heart to understanding God’s direction for your life. Although you may not understand everything you read in the Bible, if you put aside your biases and ask the Holy Spirit to guide your thoughts and understanding, God’s Word will speak clearly to your heart. Then give thanks for his Word and put it into practice to please and serve him, today and every day. 


Thank you, Lord, for your clear and excellent Word. By your Holy Spirit, guide my understanding as I read and listen so that I will find light for my path today. Amen. 


Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord!
