Headlights in the Dark

Posted by Zeb Thomas on

Psalm 119 was on my heart as I drove home one evening a while back. My windshield wipers were ticking rhythmically back and forth as I crested the country road that descends the steep hill down to my house. I half-smiled as I pulled the car to a complete stop.

"Let’s see how far I get," I thought.

I flipped off my headlights and eased my foot off the brake, letting gravity do its work. I could feel my heart rate accelerate as the car glided silently down the hill, picking up speed.

It was eerily dark.

It didn’t take long for my better judgment to override my curiosity - chances are that my wife wouldn’t be amused with a busted-up car (no matter how spiritually relevant I thought my little experiment might be)…

One flick of the wrist was all it took. The headlights were back on, bringing instant clarity to my downward descent.

"Wow," I thought. “That’s God’s Word.”

Psalm 119:105: Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

In a world of darkness and confusion, it’s God’s Word that illuminates the road that lies before us.

Have you taken time today to "turn on the light"? Let’s be partakers of the Word!
