“Your word is a lamp to my feet, and a light for my path”Psalm 119:105
I went camping a while ago. As I considered what I needed to bring, I looked at my flashlight and consciously decided to leave it behind. My phone has everything I need: a light, a bible, a notepad, the internet, and much more.
In my over-confident rationalization and subsequent decision I left one piece out of the equation—power. I only have so much and my phone needs a recharge every day.
God has a never-ending supply of power. I plug into him and he lights my path. I read his word and my life is illuminated.
When I don’t connect to God daily, my journey through the wilderness goes dark.
