Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. – Psalm 119:105 (NIV)
I remember a time not too long ago when I lost a sweater. It was one I really wanted to wear, and I looked everywhere for it. I had taken all the clothes out of my dresser and closet and still couldn’t find where it was. Finally, when all hope was lost, I grabbed a flashlight and looked under my bed.
When I stuck my head under my bed with my flashlight, and all of a sudden I could see what I had been missing. The flashlight brought light to the situation and I was able to find my missing sweater.
That’s a lot like what God’s word does in our lives. God’s word helps us see things we are missing. We might not know what to do about a relationship, God’s word helps us see it clearly. If we don’t know what to do in a difficult situation, God’s word provides the light we need to make good decisions. God’s word is useful in every situation we face.
Today’s Truth: God’s Word Helps Us See What We’re Missing
Today, choose to be thankful for God’s word. Even if you don’t have a lot of time, spend a few minutes before you go to bed tonight thinking about scripture and asking God to help show you areas in your life that you might need some spiritual illumination.
