Welcome to pilotknob.org ...
This spring, prior to the invasion of mosquitoes, Barb and I would walk the paths through Pilot Knob State Park. Every so often we would come to an intersection where we could turn right, left or continue straight. We usually took a path that was unfamiliar or if there was a marker indicating the distance that would influence our decision. It was impossible to take the wrong path because all would lead to a familiar place and we really weren’t trying to get to a particular place, just walking.
Society has a plethora of signs, turns and intersections telling us which way to walk spiritually and morally. Some people choose the new or unfamiliar while others choose the easy way and few remain on the difficult path. How do we know what path to take when standing at a crossroads? Who do we ask and who can we trust? Proverbs 14:12 says,
The spiritual and moral path you currently walk is going somewhere and will lead you someplace, is it truly where you want to go? Life is a journey, is it taking you where you want to end up?
The Psalmist calls out to God for direction through His truth. His truth is his divine word, while at the same time asking (praying) for God the Holy Spirit to teach and lead. The Word of God is the single most important component in making wise and healthy decisions. The more familiar you become with God’s word the greater wisdom you will have in making sound decisions.
