“Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.” –Corrie Ten Boom
A simple fork in the road of life can suddenly bring even the strongest warrior to their knees. Which direction? Could a wrong turn lead to destruction? Which way to God’s best? These divisions in the road come frequently in life—which school to attend, what major to declare, who to date, where to move, when to act, which job to accept, etc. These questions can overwhelm and discourage.
In seeking God, He will always faithfully answer—in His timing. Sometimes He wants us to remain in that place of seeking, of resting, of waiting on Him for direction. And then, when the road is ready, He will shine a light and lead the way.
Darkness is bound to come. The path ahead and behind is indiscernible. Only the next step is lit. Doubt creeps in. Is this the right path? Was an incorrect decision made at that fork in the road? Fear tells the heart to stop, to turn-back, to reroute.
“They did not keep God's covenant, but refused to walk according to his law. They forgot his works and the wonders that he had shown them.” Psalm 78:10, 11
Faith tells the heart to stop, to reflect, and proceed. Remember His leading—how brightly His light shown down the directed path? Recall the unquestionable words He spoke in that moment of decision—the words that undeniably revealed the right course. Now in the dark, do not doubt. Do not waiver. Remember and continue on in confidence.
He established a testimony…that they should set their hope in God and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments.” Psalm 78:5a, 7
“Never doubt in the dark what God has shown you in the light.” –Edith Edman
