BIBLE READING: Jeremiah 6
Today you have been blessed with an opportunity. As you begin the day, you pause and look at the paths that are laid out before you. Which path are you going to take? Every day you have a choice to make as to which path you will select. How do you select? Is your decision based on appearance as to which road looks the easiest, or do you feel challenged to select one more difficult? Before you make your selection, take a few moments to say a prayer and remind yourself of the words that the Lord gave to Jeremiah the prophet: “Stand by the roads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls…” (Jeremiah 6:16).
As you stand by the paths laid out in front of you, ask God to show you the good one, the one that works, the one that has been proven to be effective by His servants throughout time.
Application: When that path is revealed to you, and it will be revealed, it will not be by some bolt of lightning or ac t of divine intervention, but through careful study and prayer He will reveal it to us. Robert Frost would call it “The Road Less Traveled,” and he is correct. However, it has been traveled by some, and they have carved out a small path of examples that you will be able to see. Once you see that path, take it, you’ll be glad you did!
