God's word will show us where we are (a lamp unto our feet) and where we are going (a light unto our path.)
STAYING ON THE PATH
When approached prayerfully and in concert with the Holy Spirit, God's word will open our eyes to what is really going on in our current circumstances; we'll see truths we may have missed on our own. We will receive wisdom and insight that make difficulties "doable." We'll receive vision for the future that will keep us on the path of our destiny, even when darkness surrounds us.
Spirit can only be known by spirit--God's Spirit and our spirits in open communion. Spiritually alive, we have access to everything God's Spirit is doing . . . 1 Cor 2:15 TMB
COMING OUT OF CONFUSION
Making a habit of reading his word with the help of the Holy Spirit will bring us out of confusion by bringing clarity to our understanding of who He is and who we are in Him and to Him. As to our destination: He doesn't show us the entire path, but he does give us enough to keep us going in the right direction, even in the dark of night.
