God's Word: A Lamp At Our Feet
Happy New Year!
Have you ever walked into a room you have never been in before and before you can find the light switch the door closes behind you? There you are in the dark. You can't see anything. You don’t know which way to turn or where to go. It’s unnerving and scary. Since you don’t know the room, there is a fear of walking into something and getting hurt. But once you find the light switch and the lights come one, all the fear and anxiety of being in the room disappear. You can see! You know where to go and what to avoid.
As we enter into the year of 2019, this New Year can feel like that strange, dark room. We’ve never been here before! We don’t know what is in front of us! There is some anxiety and fear of what we will encounter this year.
Psalm 119:105 says, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” God has given us guidance for this coming year. He has given that guidance through His Word, the Scriptures. This verse tells us that the Bible is a lamp at our feet. God doesn’t promise to show us the whole picture. He doesn’t promise to reveal His entire plan. What He does promise is to give us enough light to know our very next step.
As we enter the year of 2019, I challenge all of us as a church to get into God’s Word. We have decisions to make as a church this year! We need God’s guidance. As we study the Scriptures, God will show us our next step. And with each step, our faith and trust in God will grow. We might not know what is going to happen this year, but God does! Let’s let Him lead us through this year and when December rolls around again, we will be able to celebrate where God has taken us.
In Christ’s Love,
The Super Bowl is Sunday, February 3rd. We are in need of someone to host the Youth for our Super Bowl Party and Bible Study.
