The writer of this psalm hit it perfectly when he penned these timeless words. Today we live in a world that is becoming increasingly clouded with philosophies, beliefs, teachings and pressures pushing in from every direction. It is a world that makes it easy to get distracted from what we know to be the firm foundation of truth – God’s word. As such the writer of this psalm would once again remind us that there is a clear path through the fog and darkness that is being pushed on us, and that is found in the word of God – the bible that you hold in your hand.
In a world that is constantly shifting and changing we must have something solid to anchor our lives and our worldview to. Something that remains constant no matter what the flows of current bring through our lives. If we don’t have a solid anchor point we will be swept away by whatever is current and fashionable, we will be led of the path that God has laid out for us Thus the need to anchor our lives, our beliefs and our world view firmly in the bible. That is the one truth, the one constant that shines bright and remains firm throughout all of time.
