Every day we have to make so many decisions. Google stated on an average day, we make over 35,000 decisions a day. That’s a lot! Some of the decisions are easy, like getting out of bed or eat this for lunch, etc… But other decisions are tough and may require us to seek our Heavenly Father for help. One of my go to scriptures for when I’m seeking direction is:
“Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.” Psalms 119:105 NASB2020
When I read scriptures, I like to dissect them. I study each word intentionally and think about the visual illustration which is provided.
I’m going to share with y’all the visual I see when I read this scripture: God’s words are like a lamp I carry when I’m going through a dark place. Without the words of God being my lamp, there’s darkness – I can’t see my next step. But with the words of God he provides a lamp – which is a light in a dark place and I’m able to see the path he wants me to take. Honestly, when I read this – it is as God is saying to me follow this yellow brick road that I have paved and lit up just for you.
So my encouragement for you is that if you are unsure of what path to take with a decision allow God to be your lamp and light up the path he wants you to take.
