The Bible is called a lamp for our feet and a light for our path. I have found that those are two very different things.
Sometimes God’s word illuminates the whole trail. Oh happy day! I get to see exactly where I’m going and how to get there. Wonderful.
More often, however, the lamp is placed at my feet. I see just the next little step, but nothing beyond it. I have to take a stride forward, and then the lamp shows the way for the step after that. On and on it goes, sometimes through long, difficult portions of the road of my life.
God doesn’t always reveal the outcome at the beginning. He does, however, promise to be with me and guide the whole journey. He lights the path, as He said He would, even if it’s only one step at a time.
