GPS for life

_” ¶Your word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path_” Psalm119:105

Every journey requires direction to a route or a path. There are many routes that lead to many different destinations. *If you are on a journey with God towards His destination, then you need to follow His direction.* You can’t accept or apply the rules of someone who is headed in a different destination.

The Bible says the whole world lies in wickedness or spiritual darkness (1John 5:19 ). Therefore the only thing that overcomes this darkness is to engage it with the power of light.

For the light shines in darkness and darkness cannot overcome it (John 1:5). God’s word functions as a lamp and a light which rightly guides our feet and pathways in glory. The Message Translation puts it this way _”By your words I can SEE where I’m going; they throw a beam of light on my dark path”._
Many lives have been wrecked because they refused to live and travel this life according to the light of God’s word.

*Beloved, the word of the Lord is the map that shows us every step of the way to go in life.* Yes, it serves as a “GPS” and “cardinal points” to a glorious and successful end. Without it, we will lose our way in the unknown territory of this life. It is indispensable in a dark world. Never lose sight of the fact that the world we are living in is a very dark one, and that’s why we should rejoice that Christ has come as the light that dispels this darkness. We really, really need the light of God’s word for a successful navigation through this wicked, dark world

*If your life is not directed by the Word, anything of this world would seek to direct you*. You will have to rely on being directed by darkness through an equally dark world and to be sure, you would be headed for destruction. You will be hopelessly lost.
In your business, marriage, ministry, education, finance and entire life, you need the light of God’s word to direct you. Its absence will spell doom for you and all involved.

The absence of light implies absence of revelation, direction, guidance and victory. A believer who does not walk or seek counsel from Scripture is groping in darkness. John wrote to believers, “. . . anyone who does not love his brother is living in darkness . . .” Why? Because they are not walking according to the word of God that enjoins us to love one another.

*Many of our attitudes, words and actions are not guided by the light of God’s word, and we get into trouble because of borrowing directions from the dark world around us*. Paul calls it walking in the flesh! It leads to acts of the flesh.

You can’t afford to wallow in darkness anymore. *For your victory is assured when your ways are directed by the Word.* There is so much darkness in this world, engage the light of God’s word to dominate in the affairs of life. *For God’s word is the only right direction for right living.* The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.

When we walk with the Lord.
In the LIGHT of His Word.
What a glory He sheds on our way.”
While we do His good will
He abides with us still
And with all who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way,
To be happy in Jesus. . .
