As we come to each "fork" in the road of our lives, we often get stuck there. Stuck not always because of lack of insight as what to do next, but due to the unresolved emotional issues of the past experineces that this fork reminds us. The dark confusion of this often creates intense fear where words cease and what has been formerly said begins to unfold(Psalm 97:2). The cord of this experience must be cut or the dust shaken from our emotional feet(Isaiah 52:2, Matthew 10:14). That allows the shoes of peace(Ephesians 6:15) to begin walking past this place where growth ceased. Growth then restarts and continues that creates positive and lasting change.
This wild abandonement from our past and selves removes the spiritual arrogance and replaces it with a continuing fear spoken of in Proverbs 9:10 and Romans 11:20-22.
