Feed the Flame

105 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. ~ Psalms 119:105

When we preach and teach God’s Word, it lights our path, and it lights the path of our hearers. Light does not struggle with darkness. Darkness never overcomes light. And in a world filled with much darkness, it is crucial to understand where our light comes from. Our light comes from the Holy Spirit that lives within us.

This light can only grow and strengthen if it is fed. It’s like a fire. A fire will die out if it isn’t tended to and given more fuel to consume. The Holy Spirit within us is the same way; that is why the Psalmist wrote that the Word of God is like a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. We are in a dark world, and if we don’t have the Holy Spirit like a roaring fire within us feeding on the Word of God that we are pumping into our mind and spirit, then we will be overcome by darkness. The light will not be overcome by darkness, but we will be overcome by darkness because without feeding the light, the light will die within us.

So, spend time in the Word. Spend time in worship. Spend time in prayer. You have to feed the Holy Spirit within you, or you will run cold and dark.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Feed the Flame.
