One of my favorite verses in the Bible is Psalm 119:105 where we read that God’s word is a lamp to our feet. A better rendering of “lamp” might be “lantern” because it gives a clearer image of what a lamp from that time period actually was. It was not a flashlight that illuminated a large area in front. Rather, a lamp shed light on a 2-3 foot radius around it. People would sometimes place the lamp on a pole and carry it on their shoulders so that the lamp was in front of them illuminating the next step or two. The point is that God’s Word is such that it gives us direction right now in the circumstances that we face. Whatever the next step is, the Word illuminates the path. It doesn’t give us 10 steps down the path; it simply gives us what we need in the moment. If you’re uncertain of where to go or what to do, look in God’s Word for wisdom and direction; seek His guidance, and He will give it generously.
