16 This is what the LORD says: “Stop at the crossroads and look around. Ask for the old, godly way, and walk in it. Travel its path, and you will find rest for your souls. But you reply, ‘No, that’s not the road we want!’ – Jeremiah 6:16 NLT
Hello family, as we progress on this road of life, we will come to a crossroads (intersection). We will either turn down the new road or we will cross over and continue on the road we are on. We don’t know where ether of the roads end. But we have GPS, the Holy Spirit.
Israel was at a crossroads, they could have taken heed to the words that the Lord spoke through Jeremiah, but no they took the path they wanted to take and destruction was their end. God will warn us before we make a mistake. If He says turn left we need to turn left no matter what we want to do.
Our pride, and stubborn attitudes will keep us from turning when we need to turn or stopping when we need to stop. At that point God is not going to force us to do anything. He will let us run headlong into the brick wall He warned us about over and over. I’m tired of brick walls! Ive hit enough of them to build a city!
I am at a crossroads in my life, Before i make a tenth of a hundredth of a step in either direction. I will consult my GPS God’s Proven Spirit. In January of 2015 i was at a crossroads and directed down a path. That path has been fruitful. Now in January of 2016 I am at another crossroads. I will follow the voice of truth, i will submit my plans for His. I will “Ask for the old, godly way, and walk in it.”
Much Love & God Bless
