My Word is like the beacon of a lighthouse, shining in the darkness to guide vessels through the sometimes dark and stormy sea of life and into My safe harbor. I placed it on the shore, facing the sea, so that as many as possible will see its light and be drawn to Me.
You are like a sea captain piloting his ship through rough waters on a dark night. If you had no light, you could not see the shoreline and your ship could be dashed against the rocks and lost. But because I love you, I send out My Words like the huge beam of a lighthouse to help you find your bearings. My light illuminates the dangers and points the way home.
My Word is a lamp to your feet and a light to your path.1 Look to it for light and guidance, so you can make it safely to port no matter how dark the night or how intense the storm.
