(MSG) God’s Message yet again: “Go stand at the crossroads and look around. Ask for directions to the old road, the tried-and-true road. Then take it. Discover the right route for your souls. But they said, ‘Nothing doing. We aren’t going that way.’
(NLT) 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!’
God spoke to His people Israel encouraging them to follow Him, the Godly path or way, but as we read we see that they choose not to follow His way which leads them to enslavement to another people group.
I believe today God continues to encourage us all to follow the Godly way, which leads to rest and freedom, not enslavement to another “force”. Choose the Godly way/path before you today and every day. Is it not clear to you? Then stop and look for Him, ask Him for the path to take.
Choose today to follow hard after God and He will make His way known to you and I.
