Devotional: Your Word Is A Lamp

Christian Women's Devotion on Hiding God's Word in Your Heart


Read: Psalm 119:97-114 (NKJV)

"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path." (V. 105) God's word is certainly a lamp to our feet, lighting up our way.

The Psalmist talks about the wicked laying a snare for him, but he will not stray from God's word. No matter what we face, we need to keep on in God's word and not depart from it (V:110). It is God's word that brings light to our darkness.

Through God's word we gain more understanding and insight. As we meditate on God's word—hiding it in our hearts—we can receive God's wisdom. God will often speak to us as we meditate on His word and listen to what the Holy Spirit is saying to us. We can't just read God's word alone. We need to allow it to penetrate deep down into our inmost being. This is where it can really make a difference and bring about the change we so desire. As we learn to memorize scripture, we find that it's a powerful weapon against the enemy—'The sword of the Spirit'. I know how hard it is to memorize scripture, but I also know how important it is to hide God's word in my heart. We can just start with one verse—one is better than none! You never know, you could surprise yourself, and be able to learn several. Something that may help is getting scripture on CD/MP3 so you can listen to it as you go about your day. It's great for the kids as well.

I was so amazed when my eldest son, at only 8 years old, could memorize the scriptures given out at Sunday school. I was so impressed and wished my mind were as sharp!

So, my challenge for us today is to memorize just one scripture—maybe one each week!

The entrance and unfolding of Your words give light; their unfolding gives understanding (discernment and comprehension) to the simple. - Psalm 119:130 (AMPC)

Lord, I pray that I can hide
Your word within my heart
For when I meditate on your word,
It brings light into the dark.
