When I started my job at Protection One I bought one of those LED flashlights. It’s small and bright. I use it to find door contacts in poorly lit rooms, trace wires in basements, and read control panel model numbers in dark closets. There are times when I feel like a security consultant CSI. It’s kinda cool.

This little flashlight helps me see things I’d never see without it. It focuses my attention.

There are times when it’s hard to hear God with all of the noise in our life. Wouldn’t it be great if we had a spiritual flashlight to help us focus our attention on spiritual things?

Well, we do. The Bible is our spiritual flashlight. David wrote, “Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path” (Psalm 119:15, NLT).

So, when you need to focus on some spiritual direction, pick up your Bible and start reading!
