OLD PATHS

THE OLD PATHS

Jeremiah 6:16 (KJV) says:

” Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.”

In these tumultuous times, we are standing in the way. Things are changing in the world faster than we can keep track of. We seem to be sliding into the Book of Revelations at a tremendous pace.

We are encouraged by our leaders to change. We are told that what we were taught is wrong. We are told to be tolerant of every sin in the name of peace and acceptance, and brotherly love. Many people accept all this because of fear.

But this is not what Our Lord wants us to do. He is saying in Jeremiah 6:16 that we should look at the fork in the road, and choose the old paths…which is the good way, and walk that way. Look to Him and His Word, which are everlasting, and all-wise, and follow that path, not what we are told now is the right way.

This world will get worse and worse, maybe the end will come in our lifetime, and maybe not. Only God knows this.

But this we do know. God is everlasting, and He will win in the end. The short time that we may have to suffer here, if it is His will for that to happen, is not even measurable to the eternal happiness that we will have with Our Victor and King!

So, no matter how much pressure is put on us, let us hold each other up, to choose the “old path, whereis the good way”. Let His people be the ones to say “Yes, Lord”, while the others say they will not walk there. “We will follow, Lord, through whatever Your will for us would be.”

Some more encouraging verses:

Joshua 24:15Featured imageFeatured image

“And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. “

Ps 119:116 “Uphold me according unto thy word, that I may live: and let me not be ashamed of my hope. “

Isaiah 41:10 “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness “
