Psalm 119:130 “The unfolding of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple.” (NASB)
"Hi. Yup, it's me." I have made that call many times to one, if not all, of my daughters. Calling them to help a less than computer literate man who needs some help in getting something either fixed or working correctly on our home computer. "What did you do this time, Dad?" is usually their response. It has become sort of family laugh moment as they take me through each step in getting things working again. Today's scripture speaks that the unfolding of God's Word gives light, it gives understanding to the simple. Now, I may be able to build a house from the ground up, but when it comes to some computer stuff, I am simple. I just can't seem to understand some of it, and that's when one of my daughters will share some insight and things will get working again. In life, we will have those moments when things seem too hard to understand. It's then that we should turn to God's Word and let the Light of His Word shine into our situation. It's then that understanding will begin to take place. It's almost as if you could see the "light bulb" go on over our heads! So, don't be afraid to ask for help in turning the light on!
