Are you seeking something? Are you searching for that THING (what ever the THING is) that will make you content? If so then this post if for you. How many times do we ask God to help us find the RIGHT path and he shows us the open road to HIS glory and we still decide to go down the path that might lead to our glory. I was reading during my quiet time and look at this.
The Israelites asked God to help them and of course God says no problem but look at what happened after he showed them the way to go.
(from the message, Jeremiah 6:16-21)
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.’ I even provided watchmen for them to warn them, to set off the alarm. But the people said, ‘It’s a false alarm. It doesn’t concern us.’ And so I’m calling in the nations as witnesses: ‘Watch, witnesses, what happens to them!’ And, ‘Pay attention, Earth! Don’t miss these bulletins.’
I’m visiting catastrophe on this people, the end result of the games they’ve been playing with me. They’ve ignored everything I’ve said, had nothing but contempt for my teaching. What would I want with incense brought in from Sheba, rare spices from exotic places? Your burnt sacrifices in worship give me no pleasure. Your religious rituals mean nothing to me.”
21So listen to this. Here’s God’s verdict on your way of life:
“Watch out! I’m putting roadblocks and barriers on the road you’re taking. They’ll send you sprawling, parents and children, neighbors and friends— and that will be the end of the lot of you.”
Man is that not us today. We say “God help me find the right path” and there is God with a HUGE sign saying GO THIS WAY. But even after asking we chose another way.
Guys, God knows what he is doing so the next time you see another road block come up in your life, stop and ask God “AM I SUPPOSED TO BE HERE”! Then the hard part, wait for an answer .
Have a great week!
