Each week we select a popular teaching from Jon's archives. This week's teaching from Genesis is "How To Read Your Bible."

Good Morning SearchLighters!

The Psalmist inspiredly sang out, “Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.”

I find that particular truth to be very “enlightening” indeed.

You see, a night traveler would carry a small lamp (lantern) in his hand that would shed light for his feet ... but only enough light for one step at a time!

Yet, he could look out far ahead into the distance and see the light from the village or city or house that the path he was on was taking him to.

So too, that’s how His Word so very frequently guides me personally.

He will give me just enough illumination to take the next step, but only for that next step.

Yet He enlightens me with inspiring clarity about “the big picture” of where this path I’m on is ultimately taking me, which is.... to Heaven!!!

So today, may His Word guide you into what is the next step you ought to take, and may His Word give you peace as you see the light of the Celestial City that the path we are on is leading us to ultimately.

Thankful for His Word...and for you too,

Jon Courson


Daily Devotional
July 18
 
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.
2 Corinthians 12:9
 
Like Paul, we ask for help from the Lord. As far as our Father is concerned, however, the purpose of prayer is not that He might give help to us, but that He might give Himself to us.

We want some thing.
The Father says, ‘It’s Someone.’

‘It’s Me you need. You want Me to take away the pain, to solve the problem, to get you out of the situation — but that’s not what you need. You need Me. And the very problem you’re seeking to get away from, the very situation you desire to get out of is the very one which is making you talk to Me, spend time with Me, depend on Me. You’ll be stronger when you’re weak because you’ll have no other choice than to draw strength from Me. You’ll do better when you’re weak because you’ll have to rely on Me.’
 
This Daily Devotional is an excerpt from the book "A Days Journey" by Pastor Jon. "A Days Journey" is a collection of 365 short devotions from the New Testament.  If you would like your own copy of "A Days Journey" you may click here to go to the SearchLight Store
