That’s The Good Way

Thus says the LORD:  Stand at the crossroads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way lies; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls. But they said, “We will not walk in it.—Jeremiah 6:16

At some point in your faith journey, you will stand at the edge your Red Sea where everything is going to go south on you—spelling the death of you.  Suddenly, your hopes are dashed to the ground and your dreams are broken beyond repair.  It’s at this place where you would have done everything humanly possible to reach the impossible obstacle that looms before you.  It’s here where you will find the last shred of your faith rise up from the ashes of doubt and fear—a faith that seeds the impossible.  It’s here where you will step back and see the Red Sea split wide open. It’s here where the hand of God will lead you to walk on dry ground.  And it’s here where God will reveal a new thing in your relationship with him.  As you experience an exodus through the dark valley, your crushing burden will be lifted, your new lease on life will be extended, and your season of joy will have just started.

So far, I don’t know what you have been through.  And I won’t pretend to know where you are on your journey.  I can only be your trail guide and point you in the direction of God’s dream for you:  His vision for your future and his provision to get there.

I can only say, “That’s the way toward God, that’s the way that pleases him, and that’s the way you will enjoy each other’s company.  That’s the good way … WALK IN IT!”
