Fork in the Road
Who has not stood bewildered at the proverbial fork in the road, not knowing which way to turn? We discover soon enough that we have chosen the wrong path after we have taken it, but how can mistakes in judgment be avoided at the outset?
The Psalmist has instructed us what not to do. He writes, "Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help." Ps. 146:3 A more positive directive is advanced in Proverbs: "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." Prov. 3:5, 6
Realizing that merely human judgment, whether our own or another's, is faulty and unreliable, we see clearly that it is to God, Spirit, that we must turn for direction out of the darkness of indecision and dismay. We may do so as confidently as a small child, expecting to be lovingly led, places his hand in his mother's.
