    I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you. Psalms 32:8 NIVRecently when the Lord was ready to start something new in our life, He started closing out the old. Of course we panicked, tried giving more, praying more, fasting more, serving ...

    Out of the same mouth comes blessing and cursing. My brothers, these things ought not to be so. Does a spring send out from the same opening fresh and bitter water? Can a fig tree, my brothers, yield olives, or a vine figs? Thus no spring yields both salt water and fresh water. James 3:10 WEBHot, ti...

    Give thanks to Yahweh with the lyre. Sing praises to him with the harp of ten strings. Psalm 33:2 WEBWhen I ran my fingers across the strings, I knew instantly that this was the most beautiful sounding instrument that I had ever picked up, and that I had to have one. It was a Fender twelve string ac...

The Lamp

  • Your word is a lamp to my feet, And a light for my path. Psalms 119:105 WEB

    The old oil lamps that were used in biblical times had a small radius of light. They would light the path just a few feet ahead of you, and you could not see very far down the road. When traveling by night, you could see just enough to take the next step. When you did take that step, the circle of light moved with you, and then you could see a little farther. The entire journey was made like this, one step at a time.

    I have heard it said that if you took a 'soon to be bride' into her new house and showed her all the dirty dishes that she would have to wash, the stack of dirty diapers that she would have to change, all the meals that she would have to prepare, and all the housework there would be to do, that she would run for the hills. So it is with us. God shows us just enough of the path for today. Tomorrow, He will show us what we need for that.

    Jesus told us: 'Therefore don't be anxious for tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself' (Matthew 6:34). When the problems show up, so will the answer. Don't worry about problems that do not even exist yet. You will only exhaust yourself.

    Just because you are struggling with something does not mean that God is not with you. Even the Apostle Paul had his 'thorn.' Living a Christian life does not mean that we will not face trouble, but that God can be trusted to handle the trouble when it arrives.

    So many times I have wanted to know what was farther down the road, what was coming, but God gives us enough light for today. I have always found that when tomorrow came, that He took care of that as well.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for lighting my path and the way that I should go. Let me walk in Your light all the days of my life and guide my steps. Please send me Your peace today and ease my mind and fears, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

This is so true. Thank you for sharing this message. This took me a long time to figure this out and start trusting God with tomorrow and the "What ifs" I now understand that God is totally in control and only give us what we need to know for that day or time period. We have to learn to trust Him in all situations and know that He will always make a way for us when we cant see a way out of our delema. We need only give our fears and worries to him and he will take care of us. Cast all your cares on Him because He cares for you!

The lamps showed that little circle of light becauseGod, knew that man could only take in so much at a time. When we look back that causes depression you look forward that causes anxiety. God, knew that's how he wanted his plan for us so we have to try to stay in the moment the circle of light that's there for us. Amen!

 

Thank You Pastor Dion!

Amen!  Jesus is the light if the world! Thank you for this devotional, Pastor Dion. I pray for our country daily as I am very troubled about what is happening in our country today. I realize now that God sees the whole of it, not just what is happening now. I can only see today, but God sees all today's that are ahead. Like the lamp you speak of, it only shines on what I see, not what God not only sees but knows. I must learn not to fear and learn to trust God infinite light.
