"Enter Light"

"The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple."  Psalm 119:130

The reason so many of us are confused about what we should do, which direction we should take, what decision is the best one is because we are trying to make them in the dark.  What I mean is that we are trying to make them based on our own knowledge and understanding. 

Making a decision, about anything, is like walking into an unfamiliar room with all the lights off and trying to reach a prize that has been placed on the other side of the room.  We have to feel our way around.  We have to assume which is the best route through the room.  We have to try to get our bearings and direction.  But we can't.. it is dark and unfamiliar.  If we were to turn on a light in that room, things would be clearer.  We would see clearly.  We would know where the prize was.  We could easily maneuver our way around to reach it.  Having a light on makes all the difference.

Having the light of God's Word in our situation and decision making makes all the difference also.  The verse says that when God's Word enters it gives light.  Our decisions have to be made in light of, and in the light of, God's Word.  Without it we will be confused, we will be uncertain, we will be unsure and our understanding about what to do will be darkened.  

Are you trying to make decisions in your life?  Are you uncertain of what you should do?  Are you grasping for the right answer?  Bring God's Word into your situation and the light will come on and you will see more clearly what you should do.

Have a great day.  When God's Word enters your situation, it brings light and removes the darkness.
