Psalm 119:130 - The Book for Eternal Life.

Psalm 119:130 (NLT) The teaching of your 
word gives light, so even the simple can 

Psalm 119:130 (CEV) Understanding your word 
brings light to the minds of ordinary people.  


   If you do not have a Bible in your home, 
go out and get one now - get the one that suits 
you best, get the size that is most comfortable 
for you to handle, that is most pleasant for you 
to read, and then settle down and find out for 
yourself why this one Book has endured. 
   A knowledge of the Bible is essential to 
a rich and meaningful life. The words of this 
Book have a way of filling in the missing pieces, 
of bridging the gaps, of turning the tarnished 
colors of our life to jewel-like brilliance. Learn 
to take your every problem to the Bible. Within 
its pages you will find the correct answer. Most 
of all, the Bible is a revelation of the nature 
of God. 
   A Christian once asked, "Do you know a 
book that you are willing to put under your head 
for a pillow when you are dying? Very well," he 
went on, "that is the Book you want to study when 
you are living. There is only one such Book in 
the world!" 
   How do you use your Bible? [Peace for

Enough Light for the Next Step
   Everyone needs light. You need physical 
light to make sure you can see the world around 
you, to avoid running into obstacles. 
   Through his Word, God wants to provide 
light for your mind too. The Bible says, 
Understanding your word brings light to the minds of 
ordinary people (Psalm 119:130 CEV). 
   God wants to give light - his light - to 
every single person. He wants to light up your 
mind with the truth of who he is and his next 
step for your life.  
   Biblical meditation is often the key to 
turning on that light. You have to soak your mind in 
the light. Biblical meditation isnt losing 
your mind to the universe; its focusing it on 
the Word of God. When you do that, you bring 
light to your life.  
   Through his Word, God helps you to see 
life through a different perspective. Psalm 
119:105 says, Your word is a lamp for my feet, a 
light on my path (NIV). Gods Word gives you 
direction in life. It shows you the path God wants you 
to take.  
   When Psalm 119 was written, the 
lamp referred to a candle in a lamp that people 
carried with them as they walked in the darkness. It 
was similar to how we might use a flashlight 
today. If you hold a flashlight and you want the 
light to shine further down your path, you have to 
take the next step.  
   Many times Ive been stuck and looking 
for light from God for my whole path. But Ive 
found that God gives us just enough light for the 
next step. You take that next step, and God gives 
you light for the step after that.  
   One of the best ways to turn on the light 
of Gods Word is to pray Gods Word, like 
Psalm 119:18: Open my eyes that I may see 
wonderful things in your law (NIV).  
   If you want to see wonderful things from 
Gods Word, then ask God to open your eyes to what 
he wants to do through your life. 
   Hes ready to turn on the light. [Daily
