'HIS WORD, A LIGHT'

"Your word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path" - Psalm 119:105
.
There are two broad classification of words in life: the word that lightens one's path and the words that puts one into bondage. There's the word of faith and the words of deception, discouragement, destruction and so on.
.
Which of these word would you hold onto?
.
Blind Bartimaeus was given the words of discouragement but thank God he held onto the word of faith (Luke 18:35-43).
.
The ten spies brought the words of defeat and discouragement and the Israelites believed their evil report save Joshua and Caleb. Unfortunately, a greater number of them that believed were not able to possess the land (Num. 13-14).
.
Only the word of God produces faith and gives light when you hear and believe in it, either written or spoken (Rom. 10:17, John 1:1-5).
.
Jesus is the word of God because through Him, all things were made and light came into the world. When you undoubtedly believe His word, this is only when it can lighten your path and prevent you from walking in the darkness of life (John 8:12).
.
Whose word would you believe over that matter in your life, the words of men that brings discouragement or defeat? Or the words of the devil that equally deceives? Or the voice of the flesh?
.
You can't have light to see clearly as you walk in the path of life when you fail to walk in His word. Everything you need to know and do to keep you away from darkness (confusion, ignorance, deception, folly) are contained in the Bible.
.
Remember, the devil fights tooth and nail to ensure that you don't study His word but allow you to listen to gossips and words that won't help you. He'd also ensure that when you hear the word, you won't put it to use.
.
Let His word lighten your path so that you won't walk in the darkness of life.
