        (04/26/2000) Lamp unto my feet
hello prayer warriors,

1. prayer note: lamp unto my feet

[Psalm 119:105]
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my

We've covered the right attitude to hearing from God
and the ways that we can hear from God in our previous
emails. How do we validate what we hear, whether this
is the voice of God or other voices that we hear? If
God speaks, it will be in line with His Word.

For example, we do not have to ask God whether it is
alright to commit adultery or to steal, because it is
already very clear in His Word. Or, should I leave my
husband/wife to marry another? If we ask God and we
believe that He says it's okay to do so, we know that
this is not His voice because it is not in line with
His Word. His Word is a lamp unto our feet and a light
unto our path. His Word will guide us and show us what
is right from what is wrong, what is light from what
is dark.

[Ezekiel 14:3-5]
3 Son of man, these men have set up their idols in
their heart, and put the stumblingblock of their
iniquity before their face: should I be enquired of at
all by them?
4 Therefore speak unto them, and say unto them, Thus
saith the Lord GOD; Every man of the house of Israel
that setteth up his idols in his heart, and putteth
the stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face,
and cometh to the prophet; I the Lord will answer him
that cometh according to the multitude of his idols;
5 That I may take the house of Israel in their own
heart, because they are all estranged from me through
their idols.

When we have idols in our heart and these idols are
stronger and greater than God's place in our lives, we
will not hear what God will speak to us, we will only
hear what we want to hear. The Word is very clear on
certain issues, and our inner witness is there, let us
not seek any other way to satisfy ourselves, but seek
God's ways because His ways will protect us from
damage that we will do to ourselves and to others.

Dear prayer warriors...
The last few months I've become depressed --
disillusioned with the happiness around me, and unsure
of my security, and suffering panic attacks. With all
the excitement of a new casual job, I've only had 2
days work. I need to work. With my approaching
marriage ever closer, I feel I'm not contributing my
share financially. With all the difficulties I've been
tested with in the last two years, I'm finding it
really hard to keep my chin up and stay cheery, my
positive attitude is falling by the wayside... my
fiance tells me everything is and will be alright, but
it doesn't console me.

Please pray for me.... I need the strength of the Lord
that my brothers and sisters in Christ can provide...
