Bible Simile, 9of14


~ The Bible is Like Lamp Providing Light—It Directs Our Path ~

 

 

Bible Similes  ~  The Word of God likens itself to a number of practical items.  “The Word is like…”  In this series we will look at some of the similes of the Bible which are presented clearly in the Bible itself. 

 

 

 

Comment  ~  Up to this point in this series we have looked at food items—which are good for consumption, digestion, nourishment (life sustaining), and enjoyment.  Beginning in this post we are looking at some tools—which are useful for daily living. 

 

 

 

Like a Lamp  ~  “Your commandment is a lamp, and the Law a light; reproofs of instruction are the way of life” (Proverbs 6:23). 

 

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.  I have sworn and confirmed that I will keep Your righteous judgments.  I am afflicted very much; revive me, O Lord, according to Your word.  Accept, I pray, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O Lord, and teach me Your judgments.  My life is continually in my hand, yet I do not forget Your law.  The wicked have laid a snare for me, yet I have not strayed from Your precepts.  Your testimonies I have taken as a heritage forever, for they are the rejoicing of my heart.  I have inclined my heart to perform Your statutes forever, to the very end” (Psalm 119:105-112).

 

Your testimonies are wonderful; therefore my soul keeps them.  The entrance of Your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.  I opened my mouth and panted, for I longed for Your commandments.  Look upon me and be merciful to me, as Your custom is toward those who love Your name.  Direct my steps by Your word, and let no iniquity have dominion over me.  Redeem me from the oppression of man, that I may keep Your precepts.  Make Your face shine upon Your servant, and teach me Your statutes.  Rivers of water run down from my eyes, because men do not keep Your law” (Psalm 119:129-136). 

 

 

Application  ~  God’s Word provides illumination for the Christian’s walk in a very dark world.  It provides direction, understanding, reproof, and confirmation.
