This is what the Lord says, “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls." But you said, ‘We will not walk in it.’ Jeremiah 6:16
Sometimes we stand at the crossroads uncertain where to GO. We become weary in the wonder of HOW to travel. But God readies us to walk where He wants us to step; in the footsteps of Jesus and led by the light of His LOVE.
It’s natural to not feel ready to walk on a path’s unknown. But God knows what’s ahead in our lives. He promises a plan that IS GOOD for each one of us. The Bible says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11 NLT
God longs for us to find STRENGTH when we choose to obey. He readies us to handle what will happen along the way. He arms us with everything we need to find courage to keep on going and welcome the peace of His presence.
If we truly BELIEVE God is with us, it won’t matter how long it takes to discover His reward. He will help us recognize when we’re heading in the right direction. He will help us know when it’s time to leave our comfort zone and boldly find courage to TRUST.
We must open our hearts for His guiding. God will be honored if we give Him the glory, turn from our selfish ways, follow in the footsteps of Jesus and remember to faithfully PRAY.
God knows what He’s doing! Imagine what will happen if we leave fear behind and choose to step in FAITH! God will arm us with everything we need to find hope in His promises. We will never walk alone when we journey with Jesus.
Dear God, thank you for giving us direction when we don’t know where to go. Help us remember YOU are in charge of our days. Arm us with everything we need to find glimpses of GOOD as we walk with Jesus and recognize it’s time for a change. Help us journey on a path of purpose and remember to step in FAITH. We’re ready to find JOY as we move closer to YOU and respond to Your nudging. Thank you for helping us see what happens when we welcome Your STRENGTH and TRUST in YOU. Thank you for taking care of what we could never handle on our own. Amen
