“Hold Fast To The Word” (Psalm 119: 105, ESV) by Carley Evans

What is a lamp to my feet? What is a light to my path? The Word of God, sings the psalmist.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him was not any thing made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” (John 1: 1 – 5)

The Word shines in the darkness, and darkness is unable to overcome it.

Paul exhorts us to “hold fast to the Word.” (1 Corinthians 15: 2) He tells us that we “shine as lights in the world, holding fast to the Word of life.” (Philippians 2: 15, 16)

And James commands us to “be doers of the Word, and not hearers only, deceiving [ourselves.]” (James 1: 22) He writes, “But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.” (James 1: 25)

“The righteousness based on faith says…’The Word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart.’ ” (Romans 10: 6, 8) The Word is a lamp to our feet, a light to our path. Hold fast to the Word of God.
