“Your word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path” (Psalm 119:105, NKJV).
If His Word guides my life, there is no problem or circumstance or difficulty that can rob my joy and faith in Him. His Word gives direction to handle each life circumstance that arises, but for the light of His presence and power to guide and empower me, I must surrender all of my will to His. Not just some of it, but all of it. If I try to handle whatever I face alone without His guidance, I will ultimately fail in my attempt. If I allow Him to direct each decision that I make and each step that comes, I will follow His lead safely and securely into a future that He alone knows.
Circumstances may lie ahead that I would never be able to handle in my present moment. If I trust Him, then I have peace in the present, and peace in His promise to take care of my future. As He accompanies me along my path, His light reveals only a few steps. The path, as it twists ahead, is darkened, My future path is dark because the light of His presence lights my way now. When I reach another bend in the path, He will light my way then. As the present of today passes into the future of tomorrow, He will walk with me. The same light which guided me–the same power–the same peace will continue to guide my way along my path.
The path of today starts to dawn, and I believe I have an idea what the next hour offers. But life has a way of changing everything. Suddenly the path may bend, and I must bend with it. I will trust His unchanging hand. I have committed my life, and I will never turn back. He is all I need to have strength and power for whatever is to come
