Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
I’m reading a book called Just Enough Light for the Step I’m On by Stormie Omartian. She shares a prayer at the end of Chapter 5 that really spoke to me, so I thought I’d share it with you…
LORD, shine the light of Your Word on the path of my life today. Make it a lamp for my feet so that I do not stumble. Bring it alive in my spirit so that it illuminates my mind and soul. Let it be a guide for every decision I make, every step I take. Keep me from turning to the right or the left so that I will stay on the narrow path that leads to life. Help me daily to carve out time to be alone with You and to feed on Your Truth. “Oh, how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day.” (Psalm 119:97). Open my eyes to see new treasure every time I read or hear it. Speak to me and comfort my heart. Make your Word come alive in me and use it to nourish my soul and spirit like food does for my body. Align my heart with Yours and give me revelation and guidance so that I may know Your will for my life. Shine the lamp of Your truth where I am right now and show me the next step to take.
Isn’t it encouraging to know that God will always light our way when we seek His direction? He may not show us the whole picture, but He’ll give us all we need to take that next step!
This is a beautiful post
Thanks, Maris…as I’ve been reading this book, that familiar verse has taken on a much deeper meaning to me!
I just realized I left my comment regarding this book on your chocolate chip cookies post. oops!
I’ve done that before, too! 🙂
