Of life and light

The Word

For you are the fountain of life, the light by which we see. (Psalm 36:9)

The Thought

I typically wake before dawn and carefully make my way to the coffee maker. From the kitchen I move to a table containing a  small lamp which provides just enough light to reveal the contents of the room and to read the wealth in God’s Word.

In his Word I receive a different kind of light. Light which reveals God’s paths. Light revealing his instruction, preferences, gems of divine wisdom and provision for whatever assignments the day may hold. There are reminders of what he has been building in and around me spiritually, path markers or indicators of his steps I am to follow, steps that bring purpose, peace, joy, answers to some questions and steps that lead to his good pleasure and life.

Prayer

Your light reveals your path, the place of your choosing, and the place of your presence. Your Word is the inexhaustible fountain of life from which I drink. Amen.

“And don’t let us yield to temptation”
