Divine Direction

[Written Especially for Young People]

While mankind has striven earnestly through material inventions to make every mode of travel as safe as possible, frequent disasters show how inadequate, at such times, are material devices for protection and safety. Many have longed and even earnestly prayed for divine help when danger threatened, yet more often the cry has been one of despair, rather than confidence in the power of God to protect and to save.

The Psalmist expressed the human yearning for divine help when he wrote: "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof." Here is expressed the assurance that, whatever the material forces which may seem to imperil one, yet he need have no fear, for God is ever at hand to strengthen, guide, and protect.
