Enlightenment

1 How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever?
How long will You hide Your face from me?
2 How long shall I take counsel in my soul,
Having sorrow in my heart all the day?
How long will my enemy be exalted over me?

Psalm 13:1-2

It’s so easy to get down on yourself. This always happens when you haven’t heard from the Lord. When you start taking counsel with yourself.

This doesn’t have to happen when a Bible rests on the nightstand.

We don’t have to wander in the wilderness alone. There’s no need to conjure up the resolve to keep going. There’s no reason to think we’ve got to find a way out.

Look to his word for enlightenment! In it we’ll find find a taste of sweet honey (1 Samuel 14:29). A peg in his holy place (Ezra 9:8).

And most of all, light. The Word ignites our lamp and illumines our soul. (Job 33:30 and Psalm 18:28)
