It’s not just a Book

” Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.” (Psalms 119:105 NKJV) #Bible

I remember when I came to the Lord, depressed, knowing I had enough of trying to live the way the world said I would be happy. It was the complete opposite. Drinking beer didn’t bring girls hanging all over me, it brought hangovers. Get rich quick schemes didn’t make me rich, they just took my money, and so on.

God’s word is not just a hunky dory feely good tingles inside thing that you feel when you read it. It’s alive and active in doing just what it says.

The idea of a lamp to my feet is God’s Word being the best counsel. When I follow It I see where I’m going and I don’t stumble like I continually did in the world away from God.

God’s Word being a light to my path shows me my direction, where I will end up on this path in life. God’s Word shows me right from wrong. Wrong is what I suffered from groping in the dark with no direction in this world. Right is the blessings I experienced following God’s direction and not my own.

People who think the Bible is just a book are mistaken. God’s Word is a love Letter from God Himself and a how to on living in this dark and fallen world. Without God’s Word you are doomed to darkness and death.
