We've all been there - stumbling around in the dark, trying to find our way through. Eventually though, our eyes become accustomed to the dark and we begin to feel pretty sure of ourselves. Pretty soon we feel confident walking in the dark - we don't even bother to turn the light on.
That's how it is spiritually - we've grown used to the darkness. It's become the new normal. We've walked around in the "dark" for so long we don't even bother with the Light. We need God's word to guide our way. Don't stumble your way through life in the "dark".
"Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path"
Psalm 119:105 NKJV
