A LAMP AND A LIGHT

The importance of light cannot be over-emphasised. When God started to create the world, the first thing He created was light because the earth was dark. And even when He separated the night from the day, He made the moon to govern the night so that there would always be light.

Darkness existed before the light; just as you and I were born into this dark world. Isaiah 60:2 says that darkness as black as night covers all the nations of the earth. So, it doesn't matter how good your country or location is, first world or third world, it is still plagued with darkness.

We all need light! That light refers to wisdom, understanding and knowledge. Psalm 119:104-105 says, "Your commandments give me understanding; no wonder I hate every false way. Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path." Psalm 119:130 says, "The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple."

The Scriptures are full of insights on any and every area of life. You see, not many things are mysterious to the man who's heart has illuminated and enlightened by the word of God. Minimise your mistakes by reading, studying, meditating on, and applying the Scriptures to everything you do. Your world doesn't have to be dark; and if you've been living by inferior lights, it's time to switch!
