“The unfolding of your words gives light, it gives understanding to the simple.” Psalm 119:130“The unfolding of your word gives light….”
God desires to give us light and to have us live in His light. He wants to illuminate to us, who He really is and where He wants to send us.
Meditate on the light of God. Psalms also tells us that “Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.”
It might be just enough light to illuminate one single step but rest assured, if you take one step in God’s light, He will provide the light for the next step, and the next and the next.
….”it gives understanding to the simple.”
This ending to the sentence gives such great hope. Opening the Bible is a daunting thing. This is a vast text of 66 books, with 1,189 chapters in those books, all perfectly inspired and guided entirely by God through approximately 40 men of diverse backgrounds over approximately 1500 years.
You don’t know where to start reading the Bible and some of the text is so deep it is confusing. It didn’t take long for me to decide that I was one of the “simple” that God was talking about.
The wonderful thing about God is, although we may be uneducated on things of the Bible, if we are willing to learn, He is willing to teach.
Psalm 119:105 says “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.” Don’t worry, God has the perfect plan to illuminate us and make us wise. He gives us the capacity to learn His word, the tools to learn His words and the drive to not just gather information but to gather the information with revelation and live that knowledge we have gathered.
One simple step on our part, opening the Bible, that is all it takes, God does the rest!
