Psalm 119 (8)

I have a friend whose father collects flashlights. They always have lots of flashlights in their house and car. If my friend needs to buy a present for his father, he knows he can always buy him another flashlight.

My friend’s father uses a flashlight at his job. He is a security guard. At night, he walks around the buildings and makes sure that everything is safe. His flashlight helps him to see in dark places and to know where it is safe to walk.

God gives His children a very special light. Psalm 119:105 talks about this special light. “Your word is like a lamp that guides my steps, a light that shows the path I should take.” Just as a flashlight shows us where we can walk and keeps us safe, God’s words protect us from sin and keep us on the way that leads to eternal life.

When we have an electrical storm and the power goes off, I need to have a flashlight. Otherwise, I am in the dark. God wants us to use the light of His Word every day to keep us out of the darkness of sin.

Ask God to help you use His Word today. It will protect you and keep you on the right path.
