Lamp for Our Feet, Light for Our Path: Surety

Speaker: Dr Jon Lovelady | Series: Lamp for Our Feet…Light for Our Path | Happy New Year! We begin 2020 with a new sermon series and a new emphasis for the coming year. In 2019 we focused on prayer and now we want to couple prayer with reading the Word of God. Our series is “Lamp for our Feet, Light for our Path” and this will be the theme for 2020. Our goal is to listen to God’s voice in scripture, to brighten the road before us, and to lighten the load upon us. Our first sermon of 2020 is “Surety.” It is a great place to begin because each year comes with its own uncertainty. One way to deal with the uncertainty of a new beginning is to realize the security of those things we can depend upon! The theme for this year comes from Psalm 119: 105-112. King David realized that the light of God’s Word was a foundation to his life. These verses help us to realize how we can strengthen this foundation in our own lives as we start this year. As you read this part of Psalm 119, let the light of God’s Word to strengthen you and guide you to God’s peace. Psalm 119:105-112: Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. 106 I have taken an oath and confirmed it, that I will follow your righteous laws. 107 I have suffered much; preserve my life, LORD, according to your word. 108 Accept, LORD, the willing praise of my mouth, and teach me your laws. 109 Though I constantly take my life in my hands, I will not forget your law. 110 The wicked have set a snare for me, but I have not strayed from your precepts. 111 Your statutes are my heritage forever; they are the joy of my heart. 112 My heart is set on keeping your decrees to the very end. (NIV)
