Let God light up the way. He wants to help you…through the direction of His Word. God’s Word is what will show you His perfect plan for your life. I know that might seem like, “Duh Courtnaye!” But really listen to what’s being said here. Psalm 119:105 says, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”
What it reveals is that when we run to God’s Word and open it up, the Holy Spirit literally illuminates it and then begins to reveal to us clear direction, increased faith for the journey, more strength, supernatural peace, healing beyond your belief, the need to forgive if we want to be forgiven, how to respond to difficult situations, purpose, revelation knowledge, and so much more! Whatever you and I need, it is revealed in the light of God’s Word. And once you’ve experienced this revelation, it’s like this light bulb that goes off in your head!
I’m reminded of Proverbs 3:5-6 which states, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto your own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” Yes! He will direct your path when you acknowledge who He is and trust Him with everything inside of you (your heart). And He will direct your path when you believe what He says, regardless to whether you understand what He’s allowing to take place in your life right now. Run to Him today. Let the Holy Spirit light your way and show you what to do through His word.
Sometimes it gets dark in life, and the way is not always clear. At times, you don’t know which direction to go, but are you seeking it through His word? Isaiah 50:10 tells us, “…If you are walking in darkness, without a ray of light, trust in the Lord and rely on your God…” So don’t trust in your own feelings, knowledge, opinion, or wisdom. Instead, trust God to light your path and lead your way. He is definitely a reliable source.
Listen, if you are too busy to open up your Bible in your personal time, you’re not going to know what to do or where to go sis. You have to go beyond Sunday's sermon. Dig deeper on Monday and ask, "Lord, what would you have me to do?" The point here is that as you and I read the Word, God will begin to unravel things in our minds, open up our understanding to things that we didn’t know or understand before, and give us wisdom beyond our years. It’s really a supernatural thing! Many people read the Bible for head knowledge (just to say that they’ve read it), but for us, it’s our roadmap to heaven and our guide to helping us and others live this life.
So whatever you do, make it your mission today and everyday to run to the light! Get into God’s Word and let the Holy Spirit illuminate God’s perfect plan for your life. You can’t go wrong! Do it today and watch God move…
Remember, Jesus is coming back soon! And those who endure unto the end shall be saved. So let’s be ready from the Inside Out!
QUESTION: Do you need direction today, sis? Pray and seek the Lord for the way you should go and for what you should do.
