Lamp Of The Lord
The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord, searching all the inward parts of the belly. — PROVERBS 20:27
One translation of this verse reads, “The spirit of man is the lamp of the Lord.” To put it into modern speech, you would say, “The spirit of man is the light bulb of the Lord.”
What this scripture means is that God will enlighten us — He will guide us — through our human spirits.
However, Christians seem to seek guidance in every other way except the way God said it is going to come! They judge how God is leading by what their physical senses tell them; but nowhere does the Bible say that God will guide us through our physical bodies! They look at things from a mental standpoint; but nowhere in the Bible does God declare that He will guide us through our mentality, our intellect, or our minds!
God said that it is the spirit of man that is the candle of the Lord. So God will guide us through our spirits. God will guide you through your human spirit.
Confession: I am a spirit. I have a soul. I live in a physical body. My spirit is the candle of the Lord. God my Father is enlightening me through my spirit. God is guiding me through my spirit.
