“The unfolding of your words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple.” (Ps 119:130)
I am struck by the Psalmist continued reference to God’s Word. It is that which gives light in today’s passage. It imparts understanding.
God’s Word illumines the darkness. It guides us as we walk through a world that lives in the domain of darkness. But we have God’s Word which provides safe passage through the darkness. It informs us in how we are to live and act.
As well as God’s Words helps us to understand who God is, who we are, and why the world is so messed up. It, however, doesn’t leave us in hopelessness. God’s Word also points us to the answer to the messed up situation in which we find ourselves. It points to the Messiah. The Savior who was planned before the foundation of the world to rescue a lost and dying world from darkness.
Turn to God’s Word today and every day thereafter. It should be what we pick up when we are seeking answers, guidance, and hope.
