The Lamp


Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.

Psalm 119:105



Psalm 119 is a long acrostic poem dedicated singularly to honouring and proclaiming the value of God’s Word. In verse 105, the psalmist declares to the Lord, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” Just as a lamp brightens a path for our feet to walk, God’s Word provides the illumination and guidance we need to walk in this world.


The word translated “lamp” in this passage. refers to a small clay lantern with a solitary wick. The psalmist describes the Word of God as a lamp carried on his journey to distinguish the way and keep him from stumbling off course and going astray. The light of God’s Word allows us to see the right direction. It is God’s guidance for our travels through life on earth.


Christians can say to God, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path” because the Word of God is the living energy that actively provides illumination, insight, direction, and guidance for our pilgrimage through a dark and sinful world.
