Step into the light

August 23

Daily Bible Reading: Psalms 119:105 – 176

Verse of the Day: Psalm 119:99 – “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, And light unto my path.”

We conclude our meditation upon this beautiful song of praise about the Word of God. I pray that we seek to meditate upon His Word every day.

This verse speaks about the Word being a lamp and light. In the Psalmist’s day, traveling at night was a risky task. Thieves hid and watched for travellers. They would jump them and beat them, taking all their possessions. To make this travel a little safer, the pilgrim would carry a small lamp that only through light at their feet (making them less obvious). This meant that they walked carefully watching where they placed their feet. You could not see what was ahead unless you stepped into the light you had. Our lives are like that – step into the light God has given you to find the next step.

Prayer: Light my feet as I go for You. Amen.
