Worship The Lord Jesus

In Jesus Is True Joy!

The Word, A Lamp Unto My Feet

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.  —  Psalm 119:105 (ESV)

Such a beautiful verse!  God’s Word, His written Word, our Bible is a lamp unto our feet.  And not just His written Word, but the Word that was with God from the beginning, our Lord Jesus.

I see from this verse that the Word has two purposes.  It lights our path, constantly showing us what is ahead so that we may not stray from His way of righteousness.  But it is up to us to stay on the path, and not veer off to the right or left, into the shadows and darkness that leads away from the way of our Lord.

His Word is also a lamp for our feet.  The image here is interesting, and different from the overall lighting of our path.  With a lamp constantly at our feet, we are able to see the next step we are to take, maybe even the next two, but the lamp does not light our way so that we can see the next five or ten steps we will be taking.  No, the lamp is at our feet, lighting only the immediate way before us.

And the lamp that lights our way and lights our path is The Word of God.  If we are not reading the Word, the Light will fade, and we will quickly find ourselves stumbling around in darkness.  We could even think of His Word as oil for our lamps.  The more oil we have, or the more we immerse ourselves in His Word, the more brightly our lamp will burn, and the more clearly we will discern the way that The Lord has made for us.

Worthy Is The Lamb

Revelation 5:11-14

11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;

12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.

14 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.

This God, who is exalted above the highest heaven, is the same God who reached down into the depths of my sinful life and humbled Himself to the point of death, for me!

When the day comes, I will be there among those millions who worship His name for ever and ever.  Will you be there with me?  Are you worshiping His name today?
