“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Proverbs 20:27

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

The human spirit is the lamp of the Lord,

searching every inmost part.

– Proverbs 20:27

REFLECTION…

.

“The human spirit is the lamp of the Lord”

– God has given to each one of us a mind,

which He so enlightens by His own Spirit, that we know how to distinguish good from evil;

and the conscience, which springs from this, searches the inmost recesses of the soul.

.

The overwhelming darkness, which occurs if we extinguish this light, cannot be imagined

– yet utter selfishness, pride, and lack of love can take us there!

.

On the other hand,

by clinging to the Lord and humbly welcoming His penetrating light,

we allow our weaknesses to be exposed,

and by placing them before Him we shall be strengthened…and our darkness will be lifted.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Come Lord, Light of the world,

enter into the deepest recesses of my spirit,

search me, try me, consume all my darkness.

.

Come, Lord, shine on me,

and let there be light!
