“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path” Psalm 119:105
A day or time comes in every man’s life when all his struggles come to a sudden halt and by this I don’t mean the event of death rather I mean for instance, from weeping to rejoicing, complaining to praising God, ill to being healed etc. For you that day and time is today!
However, worthy of note is one crucial fact; that the coming of light precedes such turn-around. That light knows where you ought to be so He just takes you there. You will agree with me that travelling at night without your headlamps will either make your journey sluggish or even stalled.
That is why our opening text talks about lamp unto feet and light unto path. Light makes your journey extremely fast and easy. We can therefore deduce that many are either not making progress in the journey of life today or even sluggish because their light hasn’t come because unto your light comes, rising will be a struggle, Isaiah 60:1.
Hence, it is always better and advisable to follow the light. However, the light I am introducing to you is a person in the form of words. John 1:1-4 says;
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.... In him was life; and the life was the light of men”
Jesus is that light and He is saying to you now;
“...Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men” Matthew 4:19
He is the maker of colourful destinies; the repairer of faulty foundations; the healer of broken hearts etc. He is saying to you; follow me and I will make you what you cannot make yourself. He has sent me to tell you to turn the light-way. Heed the instructions you are receiving from the word of God through His servants this season because that’s the light that will lead you to your haven.
