Exodus 13:21 (KJV)
And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night:
God provided guidance for Israel in the wilderness day and night.
- He went before them
- He protected behind them
- He never took it away
I have come to think of the Word of God in similar terms.
The Bible serves to go before us
It points out the way in which we should go. It provides an example of others who have been where we are. It teaches us through them what our next steps should be.
The Bible serves to protect behind us
Careful observance of Bible principles and lessons prevents us from many dangers. The salvation of God ensures that, no matter what the world does to us, we are fully and eternally protected.
The Bible has not been removed from us
Satan has repeatedly attempted to take the Bible from us. His most successful efforts have been to replace the Bible with inferior substitutes. Nevertheless, the Word of God remains intact and thoroughly profitable to those who will open it.
Day or night, day and night, God is present in the pages of His Word to lead us the way. Be faithful to look into the Word of God all day and all night.
