God's Word For Today
Light in the Darkness
Read Psalms 11:1 through 18:50
One weekend, a group of fathers decided to take their young sons camping and spelunking. As they entered the caves early Saturday morning, each family brought its own lantern to light their way. Through a series of unfortunate events, every boy but one disabled his light source. The entire group had ventured deep into the caves and was left with only one lantern to lead the entire group out. Though it was a stressful experience, the group made it to safety by following this one light.
God leads His followers in much the same way as they struggle to find their way through the darkness of this world.
You, Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light (Psalm 18:28).
Like the fathers and sons who followed the one light to find their way through the caves, followers of Jesus can follow the light that lives within them through the power of the Word of God and the leadership of the Holy Spirit. People are never lost in this world when they follow Jesus.
Thought for Today: “Your word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path” (Psalm 119:105).
