Psalm 119:105 - God's Guidance.

Psalm 119:105: God's Guidance.

Psalm 119:105 (KJV) Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light 
unto my path. 


God's Guidance
   Many Christians complain that God doesn't speak to them when 
they're in need of guidance. For some reason they have forgotten the 
first and most basic way God leads His children - through His written 
   As the psalmist said, "Thy word is a lamp to my feet, and a 
light to my path" (Psalm 119:105). Whenever you see the scriptural 
phrase "This is the will of God," you know for sure that's His will. 
You also know that to disobey is to break His Word. Other clear 
indications of His leading are the precepts and principles in the 
   Precepts are clearly marked statements like "Abstain from 
sexual immorality." That's like saying, "Speed Limit 35." What is 
speeding? Anything over 35 miles an hour. That's a precept. 
   Then there are principles in the Scriptures that are general 
guidelines that require discernment and maturity if we are to grasp them. 
   So often in the emotion of the moment or the pressure of the 
day, we make a decision that we would never make in the clear, 
discerning light of God's Word. Make a habit of reading the Word when 
you're facing tough decisions or moves, and study it prayerfully. God 
will talk to you! 
   You will never, ever go wrong in consulting the Scriptures.
   Facing tough decisions? Stay in the Word and study it 
prayerfully. God will talk to you. [Chuck Swindoll www.insight.org.] 

Think Biblically
   Everyone has a worldview. Our worldview is influenced by many 
things. Its influenced by our culture, by our upbringing, and by our 
education or lack thereof. Its influenced by the books we read or the 
lack of books we read. Its influenced by the media we expose 
ourselves to. 
   A worldview is comprehensive. It will affect every area of 
our lives, from our morality to how we spend our money to our 
politics to how we vote. It affects everything about us. What we want to 
have is a Christian worldview, and more specifically, a biblical 
   C. S. Lewis said, I believe in Christianity as I believe 
that the Sun has risen, not only because I see it, but because by it 
I see everything else. Thats how we need to view life: 
through the lens of Scripture, through the eyes of a follower of Jesus 
   The only way to have a biblical worldview is by studying and 
memorizing Scripture and spending time in it every day. We want to run 
everything through a biblical grid, asking ourselves, What does the 
Bible say about this? 
   Sometimes people have an emotional worldview. They base their 
views on how they feel. Theyll say, Well, I just go with my 
heart, because the heart wants what the heart wants. 
   Heres what the Bible says about our hearts: The human 
heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who 
really knows how bad it is? (Jeremiah 17:9 NLT). 
   Dont go with your heart, because your heart can mislead 
you. Dont go with your emotions, because your emotions can mislead 
you. And certainly dont go with the culture, because that will 
mislead you. Go with the Bible. It will never take you in the wrong 
direction. Learn to think biblically. [By Greg Laurie from Harvest

Good Decisions Always Agree with Gods Word
   When you need to make a decision, the first and ideal test is 
this: Is my decision in harmony with Gods Word? 
   You have to decide whats going to be your ultimate 
authority in life. It really boils down to this choice: Gods Word or 
the world. Are you going to base your decisions on what God says or 
what other people say? 
   If you base your life on popular opinion, youre always 
going to be out of date, because it changes every day. What was 
in yesterday will not be in today, and whats in 
today will not be in tomorrow. If you base your life on popular 
culture, political correctness, or opinion polls, you will struggle 
because youre building on a shifting foundation! 
   On the other hand, if you base your life on Gods Word, the 
truth never changes. Truth is always true. So if God says something 
was wrong 10,000 years ago, it was also wrong 500 years ago, its 
wrong today, and it will be wrong 1,000 years from today. I dont 
care what opinion polls and political correctness and the media say. 
If God says its wrong, its wrong. It always has been, and it 
always will be. If God says its right, it will always be right. That 
is a solid foundation! 
   God has set up the universe with certain laws - physical, 
moral, and spiritual. God built the universe around these laws because 
theyre all for your benefit. When you cooperate with the principles in 
this universe, you succeed. If you reject, disobey, ignore, and rebel 
against Gods principles, youre the one who gets hurt. 
   You dont ever break Gods laws. They break you! If I go 
up on top of a building and jump off, I dont break the law of 
gravity. It breaks me. The same is true with moral laws and spiritual 
laws. You cannot just thumb your nose at God and get away with it. 
Theres inevitably a reckoning. Anytime you violate Gods principles, 
youre asking for trouble. 
   With all this in mind, you can be confident in your decision. 
If God says its okay, then you do it. If God says no, then you 
dont do it. 
   Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path 
(Psalm 119:105 NIV). [Daily Devotional by Rick Warren: 




If anyone has a paraphrase, commentary or testimony on this 
passage of Scripture, either personal or otherwise, I would be 
interested in hearing from you.  Thanks in advance and let's keep uplifting 
Jesus that all might be drawn to Him. Fred Gibbs
