God is a Guiding Light

Reading for the day: Exodus 13:21

“The Lord went ahead of them. He guided them during the day with a pillar of cloud, and he provided light at night with a pillar of fire. This allowed them to travel by day or by night.”

Have you ever noticed how dark it gets outside at night? If you’ve ever walked down a dirt road near dusk, when the sun goes down it’s like a blanket being pulled over your head. If you weren’t actually walking, you wouldn’t know up from down.

Walking in darkness is a scary experience that we wouldn’t want to experience more than once. Yet, many of us live in darkness every day of our lives. It’s time to turn on the light inside of you and see what’s going on.

King David remarked that the Word of God was a “lamp” and a “light” for him. It illuminated his way in an otherwise dark world. God’s Word is still a guiding light to you today. His principles are eternal.

The verse for today refers to the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt. In the desert there are no lights. In order for the people to keep traveling they needed to see where they were going. God provided that light so they would not end up going in circles. Studying the Word of God today keeps you from going around in circles in your life.

One way that God leads is through the pages of the Bible. How do you handle temptation? Call on God for help and He promises to make a “way of escape.” What about planning for the future? Seek God first and He will guide you into making the right decisions for your life.

All of these answers come out of the Bible. It is a roadmap lighting the way towards abundance in this life and the next. And, abundance is overflowing blessing in every area of your life.

Prayer Suggestion: Ask God to shine a light on areas of your life that need His attention.
