Your weather just got better.

Welcome to pilotknob.org ...
Thanks for visiting. We’re excited about what pilotknob.org can offer to both members of Pilot Knob Lutheran and the surrounding community. There are many churches in the North Iowa area, each with its unique ability of serving in the Body of Christ. We pray you find the congregation God has chosen for you to serve.

We encourage you to not only take a look around, but also tell us about your visit: how you use the web site, and what you’d like to see added to pilotknob.org. We desire to be a resource for the Christian and non-Christian alike. Thank you, and may God enrich your day.

We hope you’ll visit us in person, too! We’re a short drive from numerous communities: Forest City, Fertile, Hanlontown and Joice, Iowa.

PKL Communiqué

Psalm 25:4-5 “Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me you paths; guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior and my hope is in you all day long.”

This spring, prior to the invasion of mosquitoes, Barb and I would walk the paths through Pilot Knob State Park. Every so often we would come to an intersection where we could turn right, left or continue straight. We usually took a path that was unfamiliar or if there was a marker indicating the distance that would influence our decision. It was impossible to take the wrong path because all would lead to a familiar place and we really weren’t trying to get to a particular place, just walking.

Society has a plethora of signs, turns and intersections telling us which way to walk spiritually and morally. Some people choose the new or unfamiliar while others choose the easy way and few remain on the difficult path. How do we know what path to take when standing at a crossroads? Who do we ask and who can we trust? Proverbs 14:12 says,

“There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.”
No one wants to take the path of no return, at least knowingly.

The spiritual and moral path you currently walk is going somewhere and will lead you someplace, is it truly where you want to go? Life is a journey, is it taking you where you want to end up?

The Psalmist calls out to God for direction through His truth. His truth is his divine word, while at the same time asking (praying) for God the Holy Spirit to teach and lead. The Word of God is the single most important component in making wise and healthy decisions. The more familiar you become with God’s word the greater wisdom you will have in making sound decisions.

 —Pastor Bob Snitzer
