I Myself Will Go with You

"I Myself will go down with you to Egypt, and I will also bring you up again."
I Myself Will Go with You
We are taught by this example that nothing should be undertaken and attempted contrary to or without the Word of God. Therefore we should arrange our life in such a way that we are sure of walking according to the rule of the Word, whether we are awake or asleep. Finally, we should know that everything we do is of God, who commands, calls, and blesses. For human life is most wretched and is subject to the devil, death, and countless trials, full of the most burdensome troubles and hardships. Therefore it is necessary for the godly to be fortified by the Word of God against Satan, sins, and dangers. . . Therefore it is a great gift of God to live in the light of the Word and the divine calling. For this is the golden and round crown that shines around the heads of the saints, as they are commonly depicted, namely, the Word, which directs the course of life day and night. Thus David says in Psalm 119:105: "Thy Word is a lamp to my feet," and 2 Peter 1:19 says: "You do well to pay attention to the Word as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns, etc." Reason is in darkness. Therefore it has need of the light of the Word as a leader and guide.
