Your word is a lamp to my foot, And a light for my path. (Psalm 119:105)
A psalmist said in prayer to Yahweh/Jehovah: “Your word is a lamp to my foot, and a light to my roadway.” (Psalm 119:105) God’s statements and reminders are found in the Bible, and they can help us to overcome obstacles that we may encounter on our path. Indeed, when we read the Bible and let it guide us, we are experiencing firsthand what is described at Isaiah 30:21: “Your own ears will hear a word behind you saying: ‘This is the way. Walk in it, you people.’”
17 There is no doubt that Yahweh/Jehovah provides guidance. The question is, Will you submit to it? To understand the direction that Yahweh/Jehovah provides, make it your resolve to read a portion of the Bible each day. Meditate on what you read, try to perceive Yahweh/Jehovah’s will in matters, and think of different ways that the material could apply in your life. (1 Timothy 4:15) Then use your “power of reason” when you make personal decisions.—Romans 12:1. [excerpts: Let God’s Word Guide Your Steps W 07 5/1 pp. 16, 18 (God’s Holy Name in Hebrew: Yahweh. English translation: Jehovah: accepted by many scholars)
p.s. my heart and prayers go out to All…
in perplexing circumstances including Haiti…
another tragic event: Earthquake hit October 6th
(couple years ago past tragic event: Hurricane Matthew hit on October 6th also.)
My Fam and i were recently at a First Responders’ Training Educational Event…and one practical point took away: You cannot change the event…however, MORE PREPARATION means less damage. Less preparation means MORE DAMAGE!!
i’ve always felt life is a pop quiz…what does one do about pop, unexpected quizzes??…YOU PREPARE! YOU STUDY! YOU READY?!?!
With world-wide disasters…popping up here/there/anywhere/anytime: are You personally prepared for Earthquake, Hurricane, Flood, Fire, Terrorist Activity, Shooting, Political Revolutions, Mobs, Ect., …having a plan (evacuation and Other) and a to-go bag with on-hand supplies…is practical.
Not talking undue anxiety…just preparedness…modesty.
the best book that has helped me the most with my personal pop quizzes…tough, tragic, and otherwise: The Bible…old and new testament; there is so MUCH wisdom practical to modern-living and surviving/thriving!:)
disasters…popping up: are You personally prepared for Earthquake, Hurricane, Flood, Fire, Terrorist Activity, Tsunami, You name it..having a plan and a to-go bag with on-hand supplies…is practical…logical…a head light.
