(Psalm 43:3 NIV) "Send forth your light and your truth, let them guide me; let them bring me to your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell."
(Psalm 56:13 NIV) "For you have delivered me from death and my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before God in the light of life."
(Psalm 89:15 NIV) "Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, O Lord."
(Psalm 119:133 NIV) "Direct my footsteps according to your word; let no sin rule over me."
Life can sometimes be like a walk through a corral filled with cattle. The wise man will watch where he walks or he will very likely end up in a smelly situation. God gives us plenty of advice for life, but if we choose to ignore it and charge through the corral with our eyes closed, we shouldn’t be surprised that life stinks so much of the time. It’s really not God’s fault when we step in it -- it’s our fault. He has called us out of darkness and into light. It’s our responsibility to walk in that light, keep our eyes open, and avoid the messes. But if we don’t, the blame for being smelly is on us, not the Lord. God has spoken. If we would listen to His wisdom and heed His word, we could avoid “stepping in it” over and over again. Only the fool ignores His guidance. God gives us eyes, ears, minds, and hearts. Use them for His glory, and watch where you walk. -- Friar Tuck’s Word of the Day
