Commit thy way unto the Lord ; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
Psalms 37:5 KJV


Light for my Path

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Psalms 119:105 KJV

There are times I may not know which direction to go; which choice to make, and yet if I read the Word of God – meditate upon it; ask God to speak to my heart, his Word will shine a light on the direction that I should go.

The scripture says thy Word is a lamp unto my feet. A lamp is a source of light – a source of illumination that prevents the darkness from covering my path. So I can see the direction that I need to go. God’s Word is such a huge light that I don’t have to stumble over obstacles in my path.

If I will only go to the Word of God, study it, meditate on it, and let him speak to my heart, I would be able to see how I should move and what direction I should choose.

Let God’s Word light your path so that you can avoid many obstacles along the way.

Truly seeking God

And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
Jeremiah 29:13 KJV

What really struck me somewhat hard about the scripture is the last part it says $when ye shall search for me with ALL your heart”.

I daily tell God that I love him and I want to develop and strengthen the relationship I have with him. I speak to him about my desire to seek him more. And yet this scripture says if I search for God with my whole heart, with ALL of my heart, I WILL find him so if there are parts of my relationship with God that I feel is not quite what I would like for it to be, maybe, just maybe, I’m not yet giving it my all. There may be still parts of me, of my fleshly desires and ways that has not died or yielded or totally surrendered to God.

If I am not searching for God with my whole heart then I will not completely receive everything that I’m asking for; it’s because I am haphazardly seeking him, not in full and total focus.

Yes, he will bless me for what I do actually do, but the level of relationship that I desire will only match the level of effort I put into seeking him.
