“Your Word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.”
The Lighted Path . . .
Every life journey has a few critical junctures — those times when we’re facing an important decision and we’re not sure which path to take.
Which college should I attend?
Should I accept the job offer?
Where should we raise our family?
What church should we commit to?
So many decisions. With potentially long-lasting implications.
Most of the time, however, it’s not a major life change we’re staring at; rather, our days are filled with small everyday choices. None of which may seem crucial at the moment. But every small choice we make leads us to the next choice available.
So whether a decision is big or small, wisdom is always desired.
And the one place we can always turn to for wisdom is God’s Word.
In Psalm 119, we’re told that God’s Word is a lamp unto our feet. We may not know everything that lies ahead, but we can know which direction to take because His Word lights our path. And when God’s Word lights our path, we can trust the direction we’re moving in.
Here at (in)courage, one of our greatest privileges is praying for you. Do you need more wisdom in approaching the small day-to-day choices? Or are you facing a major decision in your life right now?
