Without divine vision, the people cast off restraints (are naked)
but blessed and happy is he who keeps the law.
Without a vision, people do not know where to go. This is why billions are spent in today's culture with everyone telling people any number of paths to take. Which one is right? Who is wise that we should understand their ways and seek to follow them? The old standard of measure, the word of God, has been erased from the people's minds. They wonder around the hills like blind sheep. Sheep being led to the slaughter by the goats of this world. Everyone has a memory of one goat in their life. We try to self protect by building barriers to not be hurt again. But these walls only divide us from loving one another and receiving love. For me, the main goat was my father. He never taught me one thing. This was devastating for me, since the Lord put a love of His laws in my heart. Learning would be my life's passion, and it would be the way out of the darkness. So the root of bitterness was planted by my absent father. Now that I see the etymology of verse Proverbs 29:18, I understand the significance of this void of knowledge. I understand why my spirit was shattered, because people without knowledge or vision are completely lost and naked. It left me vulnerable, fearful and exposed to the hostile elements of this world. It left me in the dark without a light. It left me in the cold without a coat. Where do you begin? Where do you go with such a starting point? For me, I went to hostility, bitterness, hatred, judgment and revenge. Not a good starting point for a young woman about to enter the world. I was ignorant of standards of conduct or normal and healthy ways to establish and maintain relationships, which left a string of brokenness too long and painful to even consider here today. Over the past 10 years the Lord has been restoring and refreshing me. Facing my demons has been the most difficult thing I've ever had to do.
