I could hardly sleep last night because of the anticipation of trying out my new Petzl Tikka Plus 2 Headlamp at 5:30 am this morning. I went with this particular model because it had great reviews and was very affordable. Until this morning, I had never run with a headlamp. On several recent morning runs, I ran along the unlit path blindly–hoping that I did not trip or step on something.
BUT….this morning, thanks to my Petzl Tikka Plus 2 Headlamp, that ALL CHANGED! I could see! I could see well! Now, I couldn’t see everything because it was dark, but I could see the path well.
I was reminded of the fact that God’s Word is like a headlamp. It lights our path so we can see where to take the next step. God does not always show us the entire horizon in life, but He promises to “direct our steps” and He promises to “light our path.” I have personally found God to be very faithful to those promises in my life.
“Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.” Psalm 119:105 (NIV)
“If the Lord delights in a man’s way, He makes his steps firm.” Psalm 37:23 (NIV)
