Ps. 119:105 Your Word is a lamp unto my feet, a light unto my path. The Bible is God speaking to you. Every time you choose to spend time reading, speaking and meditating in His Word you open yourself up to wonderful opportunities for God to reveal more of Himself to you. As a flashlight shines the light in the direction you want to go in, so too, God's Word will shine on the path He has prepared especially for you. Staying connected to God's Word will protect you from outside influences that would try to pull you away from Him and His plan. Yes, He may give you a word through someone else, but we want to make sure it always agrees with the Word of God. If someone says something that doesn't bring peace to you, give it to God and stay connected to His Word.
