(Pro 3:5 KJV) Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
"Understanding" (998) ultimately must be based on God's view of things, not on ours. We are forced into mystery here. Some truth we will see. Some truth is currently beyond us. I think of what it is like living with an inquisitive toddler in the house. She wants to examine everything. Sometimes I tell her “no” because I know if she opens a drawer she will see the tissue and decide that she needs to blow here nose, again and again. Her understanding makes it a priority. Other times I might forbid a sharp knife to her because I know what it can do and she doesn’t have a clue.
So? Face it. There are many times in life when we don’t have a clue. This can be when we can’t see a clear choice. It can also be when a resounding “no” is to save us from unseen danger.
