Turn the Light On

Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. (Psalm 119:105 NIV)

By your words I can see where I’m going; they throw a beam of light on my dark path. (Psalm 119:105 MSG)

Psalm 119, the longest chapter in the Bible and which celebrates God’s Word, “is used in Jewish tradition to celebrate Rosh Hashanah (which is Jewish New Year)…It is fitting to use this psalm in that setting because the Psalmist beautifully expresses awe and adoration of God for his Word” (Open the Bible). As we celebrate a new year in just a few days, I’m reminded of the awesome power of God’s Word to light our path. I know just how much that has meant for me personally, especially this past year. Reading the Bible and having a verse(s) jump off its pages to illuminate the darkness in my life has been a constant source of strength and healing. I’ve been reminded to turn His light on and as we get ready to usher in a new year, I encourage you to do the same. Don’t go a day without it because it has the power to transform your darkest moments into one of your brightest. May all your days be merry and bright. Happy New Year!
