1956 Miracle Yearbook

President James T. Jeremiah Many times each year we hear our students quote the promise found in Proverbs 3:5-6, "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own under- standing. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths." As the class of 1956 shall leave the classroom and enter the field of service, there will be additional reasons why the conditions of this verse should be met. Unanticipated problems will confront them. These difficulties will be of such a nature that each one will be forced to "confide in the Lord with all his heart" because his own under- standing, or intelligence, will not be enough to help him surmount the obstacles which lie across hi s pathway. As we approach the end of the age we should, expect greater opposition to those who hold the Truth, but we should expect likewise that the God who saved us by His grace will guide us by His Spirit. While warning Timothy of the evils of apostasy, Paul urged him to "do the work of an evangelist." As dark as the night may become a true believer has no reason to walk in any other than a path" made plain" when he trusts in the Lord, and in all his ways acknowl- edges Him. Someone has summed up the truth of this text by saying, "Implicit trust brings infallible guidance:"No one on earth can boast of human infallibility but every heaven -born soul can know the will of God for his life. He can live so that looking back over the years there will be no regrets of spiritual bruises suffered because he has fallen on the rocksof disobedience, delusion, and defeat. It is the prayer of each one who has had a part in our education, that every member of the class of 1956 will both believe and experience the truths stated in the great text. As you leave Cedarville College pray that all of us who remain may have infallible guidance through implicit trust. 6
