“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.
Sandra Walker says
I did a night hike once with a guide at the Audubon centre in Kentucky and we were not allowed to have a light. We had to let our eyes adjust in the limited moonlight that was available. That is the lesson as well of storing up God’s word in our heart so it is there when we need it for comfort and strength.
