“Your Word is a million candle power spot light unto my feet and a light unto my path.”
—Psalm 119:105

Oh, wait, that’s not what it says. It says “Your Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.” It’s a much smaller light. It doesn’t always shine very far. It doesn’t let us see the whole path. It gives enough light to see the next step and that is a problem for many. After all being a visionary, having a vision of life can be frustrating enough that sometimes we envy those that just sort of wander aimlessly. Don’t fall into that trap. Your God-given vision is beautiful. It’s His will for your life. It’s the goal, He created for you, the goal he created you for. The frustration comes when we look at the distance between where we are and the glorious vision. It not only seems too far, you have no idea how to get there.

I maintain that you do know how to get there. It’s the same way all of us get to our God-given visions. We follow the Giver to the gift. We follow God. And how do we follow God? We pray and we follow His Word. The word that is a lamp unto our feet and while that lamp may not show us the whole path it gives us what we need to take the net step. If we could see the whole path we would not need to have faith. Without faith it is impossible to please God. We need to take the next step and we need to trust God.

Brian Houston in his book Live Love Lead: Your Best Is Yet to Come!

says it this way.

“Now is the time to close the gap between where you are in the present and where God is calling you to go in the future. The doorway to your glorious future is likely to be open already, waiting for you to push and walk through it. If you’re frustrated by unrealized dreams and ongoing disappointments, ask God to reveal your next steps. Ask Him to transform the rod in your hand (a reference to Moses) into the key to unlock your future. Don’t try to jump too far to soon; instead just ask God to show you today’s step, the one priority to keep you moving forward.”

The path is there, God laid it for you. It may not be easy but He will walk with you through it. Trust Him to light the way. Trust Him to lead you all the way home. You’re not there yet, but as for today, take the next step and trust!
