When we walk with Jesus, we must keep close to Him and stay upon the path that He has prepared for us. His Word is a lamp to guide our feet and a light for our path to follow Him.
When we follow Him we can walk safely and not stumble. Only at night is there danger of a wrong step, because of the dark. This is why it is so important to stay close to Christ. He makes us aware of what maybe in our path, through the Holy Spirit of God, He teaches us to see when we are walking away from the path He has prepared for us. Although we cannot see Him, in our faith we know He is with us. His words and light are available to us as they were to His disciples. If we let them guide our choices, we will not stumble. We will see everything from His perspective. We will see the Father as Jesus saw Him. Sadly, if we ignore His words or set aside His teachings, we will stray into darkness. In darkness we will stumble and fall. We will get hurt, and we will hurt others. Let us store up His words deep in our hearts and walk in the light and then we shall surely be safe.
O my precious God, may I remain in the light and in the teaching of Your word. May Your word come alive within me, help me to remember and recall all of Your teachings, so I may never forget them. You have given me the Holy Spirit of God, as my Helper, Teacher, and Comforter; may He comfort me. I praise and thank You for all of Your help in the precious name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
