Faith


faith“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” Psalm 119:105

God does not desire a blind, unfounded faith, but a faith grounded upon what He has exposed to us, enlightening us by His Word.

Psalm 119:105 speaks of His Word as a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our paths.  The lamp was generally a small hand held pottery lamp which held a small amount of oil and a wick.  This lamp provided enough light for the bearer to see about six feet or so around him not enough to run but to walk safely about.

So it is with His Word, giving us enough to walk by faith.

Habakkuk 2:4 … the just shall live by faith

Romans 5:1 … being justified by faith

Heb. 11 … The faith chapter.
