Standing at the crossroads – looking in each direction, wondering which way to go.
I’ve been there.
You’ve been there.
Sometimes these are small decisions that will not having a lasting affect on my life.
Other times, I am standing at the crossroads of 2 very different journeys and my decision on which road to take will determine the main direction of my life for many years to come.
What should I do?
God tells me in Jeremiah 6 to ask him for direction, listen to him, and then walk in the path he chooses for me.
Then I will find rest for my soul.
Thinking about this, I realize that I often ask……
I can walk around for days asking and asking and asking….
but then I forget to listen for the answer.
All the voices and noises of the world around me make it very hard to focus,
it’s very hard to be still long enough to hear.
Do you have this same issue?
If I’m not careful, the loudest voice in my head is my own –
what I think,
what I want.
My will be done.
And then I find myself on the same road as the Israelites who didn’t listen to God. As a result, they couldn’t please God. They stumbled around in the darkness of their own making. They refused to listen.
That’s not the path I want to choose.
Please help me hear and obey, Abba Father.
