Your Word Gives Light
The teaching of your word gives light.
The teaching of your word gives light, so even the simple can understand.
All the glory, praises and honor be to the Holy Father in Jesus’ precious name!
The Psalmist teaches us an important truth through the subject verse. He acknowledges that the word of God is light to the mankind. Truly, those who faithfully and reverently receive the word of God shall be flooded with His light, The light which transforms them to walk in the path of the Living God. For the word of God is unlike the word of man. Indeed, as the following verse says, the word of God is a lamp to guide our feet and a light for our path.
Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.Psalms 119:105 NLT
First thing to remember is that God’s words are life changing. Those who heed to God’s words shall not only walk the righteous path but also lead others. The Bible says that the word or the law of the Lord is perfect and converts the soul of man. As the subject verse says, even a simple can understand the teaching of His word. For His word enlightens who faithfully receive. Furthermore, His words give prudence to the simple, while young men receive knowledge and discretion.
To give prudence to the simple, To the young man knowledge and discretion—Proverbs 1:4 NKJV
Therefore, let us seek to hear the word of God and meditate upon it for our growth and living. In that way, we may reflect the light upon others so that they too seek God’s word. Very importantly, let us live and work as the citizens of the Kingdom of God in Jesus’ precious and matchless name. Amen.
