Lamp and Light

Psalm 119 Many years ago, so far back to remember, I was given Ps 119:105 in KJV, “thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path,” as a verse to memorize. It still is a precious memory, and I encourage you to ponder its meaning. Now to the psalm:

The psalmist wrote a lengthy prayer and thoughts to remind himself of this one important principle: God’s Word is our lamp and our light to guide us step by step through each day. Two phrases continually are repeated: teach me and revive me. It is noted that this is a poem to be read just as it is. There are 22 stanzas which, if you took time each day to just meditate on just that stanza, would just about carry you through a month’s days. This in itself seems to be a marvelous way to begin each day, see life, and hear the psalmist as he seeks the face of God.

What verse stands out to you as one you want to ponder and memorize for this day?
