The Light of the World Part 4: The Word is Light

Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

Psalm 119:105





The very Being of Light has not left us to grope around in darkness. He has given us His Word. This amazing book written over a period of 2,000 years by over 40 different authors is called the Bible. In it we find the specific revelation of God. In it we can come to know God's character, why we are here, why we are messed up, and how to get reconciled with God! That is the most amazing information ever!


The psalmist understood correctly when he stated that God's word is a lamp and a light. The enemy of the world, the god of this age has blinded the minds of those who don't believe. In that blinding process is the allure and temptations to fulfil self. We go through this world seeking self until at last God commands the light of the glorious gospel to shine in our lives. It doesn't end there. God has so much for us! He wants us to overcome the wicked one.


Part of overcoming is gaining knowledge, understanding and wisdom. We can't solve problems if we are ignorant. This is one of the key aspects of the Bible. God has revealed Himself, mankind, sin, the past, the present, and the future--in His Word. Yet often we find ourselves stumbling around in darkness because we aren't paying attention to the treasure that God has given to us--His Word.


The entrance of Your word gives light; it gives understanding to the simple. (Psalm 119:130) God has a wonderful plan for our lives that involves so much more than just living. We need to be the one who are armed with the Sword of the Spirit--the Word of God (Ephesians 6:10-18). We need to read it and hide it in our hearts so that we will not sin against Him. (Psalm 119:11) That is when we will become the beings of light that God has created us to be in this world.


Blessings to you!
