One Step at a Time

imageToday we learned from our Arab brothers in Bethlehem about the ancient world’s version of a flashlight.
People would take a clay lamp, like the one pictured here, fill it with a little olive oil as to not spill it and then tie one to each foot. This lamp contained a very small wick; thus, it would give the person just enough light to walk one step at time in the darkness.
Kind of gives meaning to the Psalmist words, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.” (119:105) Notice it’s “a lamp to my feet” not my head or eyes. The author was telling the reader that God doesn’t necessarily shine His light very far down our path. He is asking us to trust Him with each step we literally take in following Him.
If you’re in His word listening for specific lie-fighting and filtering truths, you can make the right choice to turn to Jesus in any moment of any given day.
Don’t let tomorrow stress you out. It will only lead you down the path to your drug of choice. Instead, keep walking one step at a time in the presence of Jesus using the truths He gives you. As you do, you’ll find all that you’re looking for in life – love, significance and security.
