If you’re stumbling in the dark

“The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.” Psalm 119:130


The Word is like a well-worn map that takes you different places every time you open it. It’s meant to be unfolded and used over and over again. It’s a reference to be sought out often, especially at pivotal turns.

The Word is a map that doesn’t fade with time. In fact, each reading of the same passage can bring new insights, brighter light, a different shade or a new angle. The discoveries get better and better.

God wants to illuminate our path and does so by giving guidance through His Word. He reveals road blocks and dead-ends. The Word gives boundaries for life and can let us know when to turn to the left or to the right. It shows the way to the Father’s love and His forever home, heaven.

Stumbling in the dark? Unfold His map and let His words light the way.


“Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.” Psalm 119:105

“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.” Matthew 24:35

“Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it.'” Isaiah 30:21

“How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your word.” Psalm 119:9
