Thirsty Thursday - The Word is a Lamp

"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path. I have taken an oath and confirmed it, that I will follow your righteous laws. I have suffered much; preserve my life, O Lord, acccording to your word. Accept, O Lord, the willing praise of my mouth, and teach me your laws. Though I constantly take my life in my hands, I will not forget your law. The wicked have set a snare for
me, but I have not strayed from your precepts. Your statutes are my heritage forever; they are the joy of my heart. My heart is set on keeping your decrees to the very end."

Psalms 119:105-112

I was planning on doing the first verse "your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path". Then I read on...WOW! I love how God reveals over and over how if we do the right things His promises are there for us!

What it says to me

The Word is there to help us through this life. The times we struggle, our trials, our sufferings. The world is getting worse everyday. I don't want to gain the whole world and lose my soul!! I don't know anyone that does want to lose their soul!

This is one of my favorite songs ever! Enjoy and listen to the words! Lose my Soul by Toby Mac

We need the Word in our lives to get by until the end of days! We are to follow God's law! The part of preserving my life through sufferings... it hollers out to me that He will forgive and help us get back on the path we are meant to follow!! It is a promise that if we obey and do the righteous things in our lives, He will come through for us by protecting us, guiding us and loving us! God is Good! Reading the Word will help you through everyday trials. If you don't know how to pursue something. Pray to God, read the Word, listen and something will be revealed!! I am proof of that!

How about you? What does it say to you? Did you like the song?

Many Blessings!

  1. Wonderful! The word IS a lamp to our feet and a light to our paths. The word is our best defense against all problems and snares of the enemy. What was it we talked about last Sunday? The Word is our sword used to strike out at the enemy? What a loving God to love us so much that He would give us so much to make our time here easier, if we would just take advantage of it. Loved the blog:)
