Light my path

Earlier today on Bellshill Salvation Army Band’s Facebook page I shared some devotions. I’d like to share those devotions with you tonight.

While driving along a road at night which has either no, or little lighting, you may find your headlights illuminate road signs that warn you of danger ahead. For example, maybe the road is about to twist and turn for the next few miles, or maybe the sign is warning that the road surface ahead is uneven, or maybe the road narrows ahead.

The warnings about what lies ahead on your road may mean that your journey may take longer than you expected, and it may not be as direct a journey as you may have expected or wanted. The thing is, despite the possible extra time the road may add to your journey, it will still get you to your intended destination.

Within the bible we’re reminded that the way ahead is filled with drop-offs, potholes, and sudden turns. In Psalm 199:105 we read these words.

Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.

Psalm 119:105

We wouldn’t drive that sunlight road with curves or uneven surface at night without having the lights of your car on so they illuminate the road ahead. In the same way we shouldn’t race into our day, or the rest of our lives, without the direction, help and guidance from God.

Without God I would be wandering in the darkness of life. I am grateful that God gives me the encouragement I need to get through long days when pain and anxieties roll around me like a fog. I give thanks to God for lighting my path and guiding me along that path. 

If you are wandering in darkness through your life, I encourage you today to turn to God, and let Him light your way.
