Psalm 119:105 - God's Guidance.

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


As we search its pages [the Bible], light 
enters the heart, illuminating the mind. By this 
light we see what we ought to be. If we do not 
consult the Guidebook at every step, inquiring, Is 
this the way of the Lord? our words and acts will 
be tainted by selfishness. We shall forget God, 
and walk in paths that He has not chosen for us. 
 God's Word is full of precious promises and 
helpful counsel. It is infallible; for God cannot 
err. It has help for every circumstance and 
condition of life, and God looks on with sadness when 
His children turn from it to human aid.  He who 
through the Scriptures holds communion with God will 
be ennobled and sanctified. As he reads the 
inspired record of the Saviour's love, his heart will 
melt in tenderness and contrition. He will be 
filled with a desire to be like his Master, to live 
a life of loving service. ML27 


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youre always going to be out of date, because it 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 
be out today, and whats in today 
will be out tomorrow. If you base your life 
on popular culture or opinion polls, you will 
struggle because youre building on a shifting 
   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 
the culture says or what is popular at the time. 
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. 
   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: 

Make Your Decisions Using the Light of 
Gods Word 
   Theres no doubt about it. Today 
were faced with more decisions than ever before. 
We live in a multiple-choice culture. 
   And decisions are significant. Sometimes 
even little decisions are like the hinges that 
let a giant door swing - they seem so small but 
can completely change the direction of your 
   When I was in college, I decided at the 
last minute to go to a meeting. I arrived late 
and sat in the back row. The only other person 
in that row was a woman named Kay. After the 
meeting, I asked her out on a date. And eight days 
later we were engaged. A seemingly insignificant 
decision shaped the direction of my whole life. 
   Since decisions matter so much, we must 
be wise in how we make them. The book of 
Proverbs says: If you want better insight and 
discernment  learn the importance of reverence for 
the Lord and of trusting him  He shows how to 
distinguish right from wrong, how to find the right 
decision every time (Proverbs 2:3-5, 9 TLB). 
   How do you listen to God when making a 
decision? Look at his Word. I like to call this the 
Ideal Test. Do your decisions and actions line up 
with Gods will? Are they in harmony with 
Gods Word? 
   You have two choices about who your 
ultimate authority will be: the world or Gods Word 
- what other people say or what God says. 
   If you base your decisions on current 
popular opinion, youll always be on shaky ground 
because culture changes every day. On the other 
hand, if you base your decisions on Gods Word, 
youll have a solid foundation because his truth 
never changes. 
   Recently I went up into the attic of our 
house. The attic light had burned out. I was 
walking around in the dark and kept bumping my head. 
I need a flashlight, I thought. 
   Sometimes when youre making a 
decision, you may feel like youre bumping around in 
the dark. Fortunately, Gods given you a 
flashlight: the Bible. 
   Psalm 119:105 says, Your word is a 
lamp for my feet, a light on my path (NIV). 
   And when the light of Gods Word makes 
your choice clear, just obey - even if you 
dont understand. I dont understand 
electricity, but that doesnt stop me from turning on 
lights and watching my television. I dont 
understand the physics of internal combustion, but I 
still drive a car. 
   You dont need to understand why God 
says what he does in the Bible to benefit from 
it. You just need to obey his instruction and 
follow his principles. He gives his instructions 
for your benefit, and youll be blessed as a 
result of following them. [Daily Devotional by Rick 
Warren: https://pastorrick.com/devotional/] 

   Sometimes when I'm making decisions about 
the future, I wish that God would give me more 
information to help make the decision easier. He already 
knows the future. Why won't he share more of it 
with me? During those times, I try to remind 
myself of today's verse from the Psalms. 
   When we seek him in his Word, God will 
often speak to us, prompting us on what steps we 
should take next. But if he is offering a lamp to 
our feet and light to our path, that may only 
help us for a few steps. And no more. 
   Most of the time we want more details 
about the future. However, it would probably be 
more than we bargained for. I'm guessing that God 
knows we wouldn't deal well with some of the 
details if we could see exactly what was coming. If 
he had shown me much of what I've had to endure 
leading the church, I would not have said yes to 
starting it more than two decades ago. 
   God's grace is always sufficient for 
today - or for the moment. 
   If you ever find yourself wanting more 
details, remember that God will show you all you need 
to make decisions that honor him. He may 
illuminate our path for two or three steps, but he 
likely will not show us steps four, five, or six. 
We have to take the first few before he'll show 
us what to do next. 
   As I make decisions in my life, Lord, I 
will trust you to illuminate the next step I 
should take. Forgive me when I want to see more 
than you are ready to reveal. I will wait on you 
to guide me. [Daily Power by Craig Groeschel]
