Issue 493 – Verse of the Week

June 3rd – June 9th, 2021


Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105

Absorption Rate

The oldest vehicle headlamps were lanterns fueled by oil that barely lit the roadway more than ten feet. Electric ones weren’t introduced until 1918. It was said they could illuminate a road sign up to 500 feet away, but the problem was that their glowing filaments had a very short life. Over the years, headlight technology advanced until today’s vehicles are equipped with new light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs that provide longer life and greater distances of illumination. Still, none of them can light the curve in the roadway ahead, much less cover the entire distance to your destination. God’s Word the Bible is much like headlights. Your steps are lit by its reading and your path illuminated by your understanding. Yet, only God has the light on what is around the next curve in your life, which is why you must give Him your complete trust.  “Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you. Ponder the path of your feet, then all your ways will be sure” (Proverbs 4:25-26).
