Through Your precepts I get understanding; Therefore I hate every false way. Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.
-The Word of God offers direction to our way of life which is equated to light. Topical matters like: – gambling, same sex relationships and marriages, polygamy, bigamy, prostitution, sexual immorality, lust, pornography and masturbation, jealousy, murder, corruption, theft, laziness, work, alcoholism, drug abuse, death and eternal life, healing of diseases, children and parental responsibilities, leadership and governance, the church, our ultimate conduct, what God requires of us, our portion as Christians, the gifts and fruit of the Holy Spirit, the grace of God, the Holy Trinity etc, have been addressed in the Bible. The Lord often told the Israelites as He tells us today to keep His statutes with a promised to prosper us. These precepts are foundational for every Christian life as each one is called to take us his/her cross and follow Jesus; the author and finisher of our faith. Through the word of God our thoughts, words and deeds are established as the Holy Spirit guides us in the path of light regarding all issues of life. Without the word of God; then we walk in darkness for Word is Christ Himself. God is light and in Him there is no darkness at all (1 Jn 1:5-10). In the parable of the sower; some seeds fell on the paths, others on the rocky ground and the fruitful seeds fell on the fertile soil. This parable represents our reception to the word of God. We are reminded to let the word of Christ dwell in us richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and singing with grace in our hearts to the Lord, and whatever we do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him (Col 3:16-17).
Lord You are clothed with majesty and gird Yourself with strength. You reign over all the heavens and the earth we believe in You Jesus. We thanks You Lord our Father for Your everlasting love upon us; help us to love You and our neighbours as ourselves. Forgive us our sins Jesus and those of the whole world. Deliver us from all evil Father and grant us peace. We surrender our lives, families, society, churches, leaders and nation to You Lord; dwell deeply in our hearts and mold us so that we may always desire Your divine purposes. Your word is a lamb to our feet and a light to our path. Teach us Your ways Lord and guide us in paths of righteousness. Amen
