“Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”  Ps. 119:105

Nothing happens until the Word is spoken.  The earth was dark until “God said…”  The sun, the moon and the stars along with all the other universes and celestial bodies; none had a purpose, until “God spoke.”

Think about it for a moment.  Adam did not know where he was; Abraham was passing time in the desert; Moses was an exiled shepherd, David was tending sheep, Gideon, sifting grain, Esther combing her hair and Peter toiling all night.  Clueless people, until God spoke.

Lazarus rotting in a tomb, a woman paralyzed for eighteen years and a thief dying on a cross.  Hopeless people, until God spoke.

God’s Word is a lamp to our feet because it reveals who we really are and how much we really need Him.  But it is also a light to our path, because as we allow His Word to show us who we are, the same Word empowers us to create the future which God has promised as we declare it with faith.

That’s right!  Your future begins the moment you summon the courage to SPEAK THE WORD .  Wherever life finds you today, it can get better.  You can get back on track the moment you hear yourself say what HE SAYS.

Go ahead.  Try it.  His Words in your mouth contain the same power as the Words in His.  Say what you want and nothing else.  Now look down your “Word-lit Path…”  It’s Glorious!

I Call You A Champion!
