An excited group of hikers trekked single file down the side of the Grand Canyon. The destination was still some distance but night descended on the small band as the sun dipped below the rim. The guide switched on his flashlight, the rest of the group followed suit, and they soon reached the safety of the camp below.
The next morning, one of the hikers stared up at the narrow trail snaking its way down the side of canyon wall and noticed all the unseen dangers in the shadows of night — boulders, land slides and steep switch-backs. One misstep would have been disastrous. Yet, by following that single shaft of light–one step at a time–no one stumbled and fell in the darkness.
In Psalm 119:105 we read, “By your words I can see where I’m going; They throw a beam of light on my dark path.” (The Message) Life can trip us up. We can struggle and wrestle with our own solutions but it is God that will lead us to safety and shelter if we listen to Him. Join me as we engage in the journey together, seeking to know Him better as we can follow His light.
