God’s Word is a Lamp [Psalm 119:105 Daily Devotional]

“Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.”

Psalm 119:105

The psalmist is writing about how God’s word, the Bible, illuminates our path. A lamp doesn’t necessarily give off a ton of light, but it does give you enough to take your next couple of steps. So, while we’re surrounded by darkness, we can count on the Lord to guide us through it by his word.

God’s Word is a Lamp

I think you’ll agree when I say life is complicated. It can be hard to sort through all the different complexities in life. That’s where this verse comes in. It’s encouraging you to rely on the word of God – the word spoken, written, and perceived. If you’re like me, though, you probably haven’t heard the voice of God speaking to you in the darkness. That’s okay! We have a collection of the words of God in the New Testament through Jesus’s followers. The New Testament is the best place for you to start experiencing God’s word in the darkness.

However, you can perceive God’s word, not just hear it spoken and read it written. This means that you have direct access to God himself because he’s always speaking to you. Take time to sit in silence and listen for what God is telling you to do. He often won’t speak to you audibly, but you will feel a nudge from the Holy Spirit to say or do something. I pray you will have the courage to respond to his nudges.


Father, thank you for being a lamp for me. Continue to guide me through the complexity of life. Give me the courage to help others see you in their darkness and experience you fully. It’s in Jesus’s name I pray, amen.
