🔥🔥THY WORD IS A LAMP UNTO MY FEET, AND A LIGHT UNTO MY PATH🔥🔥

Thy word, 'What is thy word'?

God's word is anything sent out from Him in any form, received in any way.

This can be in written form as you have it presented in the Scriptures.

This can also be in written form as it is given through the Rhema Word, both of which are Holy Spirit driven.

Thy word can also be something God does to intercept you in your life, to help direct it or even save it.

This could be words written in a newspaper, something someone speaks which has perfect timing. It could be the person whom stopped you to speak to you which, if they had not, you could have come in the path of a vehicle.

I am suggesting that God's word is more than audible words. It is anything that has come from God, which becomes a creation in your life, enriching it in some form.

All of creation came into being by being spoken. In essence, the root and foundations of all things have God's word interwoven into them like DNA. Whether that becomes a written word, object, person, place, or action.

God's word is anything of the senses: Anything, smelt, seen, tasted, touched and heard.

This lights your path and holds you close to our Father. Where there is light, love, direction from God, His Spirit is present. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom. I believe we are all capable of recognising Him, because it is intentioned by God, therefore our spirit responds to and recognises His Spirit. 💖🔥

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When I feel afraid,
And think I've lost my way
Still, you're there right beside me
Nothing will I fear
As long as you are near
Please be near me to the end
I will not forget
Your love for me and yet
My heart forever is wandering
Jesus be my guide
And hold me to your side
And I will love you to the end

Nothing will I fear
As long as you are near
Please be near me to the end

Well said @Serenity.

 God's Word is in the very fabric  and being of creation and in a variety of ways and we cannot exist without His Word.

 We cannot live on bread alone but from the Words that proceed from His mouth.

Hi @Cariad

I think we are talking at cross purposes but I really don't have time to write too much.

The whole of the world is formed by God and needed for the every day life.  That many unwittingly are influenced by, and within God drawing them to Him. 

If any of us can remember those times before we were christian s and think of examples, eventhough we were unaware.

Yet many too can  find a withdrawal when their hearts harden but that can lead to them seeking Him, or  further hardening.

When the Word dwells in them they are reconciled to God and then taught, counselled and led more powerfully, with awareness.

@Serenity
@Christianna

With respect to you both I have to disagree.  I believe that it is the written word of God which is referred to in the words of the subject heading from Psalm 119.  It is the word of God that we are to have dwelling in us richly, and it is the word of God which is the sword of the Spirit, and which He uses to teach, encourage, correct us, and direct our paths.

Thank you
With love in Christ Jesus
Chris

Thats ok, you are obviously ok to disagree, i am not into the whole 'convincing' thing many feel the need to do.

You may well be right in respect of that particular Psalm and its context.  It is not something i even went into writing this.  I totally was not writing from the perspective of context but rather more simply the phrase in general 'Thy Word' which that quote had me/triggered me musing on.  As much as i assumed that was fairly obvious to what is clearly a more mature in The Word audience.  I maybe should have pointed this out rather than assuming.  Do note i put this into the articulate group and not the debate group.

That Word alongside others about lamps and light  [was given on my weddng day] ..

Not sure about context [at the time it was written] as it kind of freezes time.. [and God lives outside of time and in time]

I agree that scripture can light our path..

My teacher 'as a young disciple' taught me that - [the Word is great - but there comes a time when it enters the heart and begins to be lived...  and experienced.

God's Word has never ceased, why would God go mute?

We don't always hear/see/taste/feel/smell it because we are otherwise distracted in one way or another by things in the world. 

As much as God speaks with you so the devil pecks at you.  As much as God is God, the earth at this time is the devil's playground and jurisdiction. 
Often i see God blamed for the devils handywork.
More than ever it is important to keep up your spiritual habits and know you do not just don your armour once in a lifetime but daily.

As much as the devil can have influence here and batter on and on at you...spirit recognises Spirit and as Scripture says, My sheep know my voice and they follow it. 
Make sure you are listening to God's voice.

Yeah - I think the word of the moment is = Psalm 34:8 Taste and see that the Lord is good;
 blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
present tense..

You can index that scripture - only to find - again it's an experience and heart living...

Though this scipture has a period of time in which it was given.

 I can also say "NOW" taste and see that the Lord is good..

If it were not so "then no- one would now come to the Lord" and taste and see..[today].

That's a good verse @Rainman

There is the parable of the sower - but that's only a part of it.

The world needs the "Salt"- for the harmony of the societies and every day life, for individuals

And we are called the Salt of the earth.

When the Salt loses its saltiness, there is a famine of God's Word.

In a society - the healthy balance and sensible reasoning is lost, with reprobate minds.

God's presence is withdrawn - but that can cause many to be drawn to Him.

That is what has happened with revivals. In times of a falling away.

How does it fit in?

The wheat and the weeds grow together- therefore if the evil is waxing worse, then alongside that the goodness ,and also the renewal in Ekklesia, should be getting better.
