Isaiah 55:6, 8-9 AMPC … Seek, inquire for, and require the Lord while He may be found [claiming Him by necessity and by right]; call upon Him while He is near.

Isaiah 8-9 AMPC … For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.

Psalm 32:8 AMPC … I [the Lord] will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you.

My people have forgotten Me
Thus says the Lord
They burn incense to worthless gods and so
Stand at the crossroads and see
They have stumbled in the way they should go
Consider your path
They no longer follow the ancient paths
Ask for the ancient paths
Instead they walk in bypaths 
Where the good way is  
And on roads not built up.
And walk in it –

Then you will find rest for your souls.
-Jeremiah 18:15, 6:16

Courage at the Crossroads

February 8, 2016

Standing at the crossroads?
Be of good courage –
Ps 27:14
Consider your path 
STAND – LOOK – ASK
LISTEN and then WALK. –
Jere 6:16

The only way to have courage at the crossroads
Is to STAND and ASK the LORD
Then listen and obey His voice alone! –Ps 118:8

STAND on His word and ASK
Then walk in the good way
With Him
Follow Him
Even if nobody else does …. ((trail blazer))

Remember the good way is narrow –Mt 7:13-14
You can’t judge the way by the crowd.

Stand – Look – Ask – Listen – Walk!

Psalm 27:14 NKJV … Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!

Psalm 118:8 AMPC … It is better to trust and take refuge in the Lord than to put confidence in man.

Jeremiah 6:16-17 AMPC … Thus says the Lord: Stand by the roads and look; and ask for the eternal paths, where the good, old way is; then walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk in it!
17 Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hear and obey the sound of the trumpet! But they said, We will not listen or obey.

Two Kinds of Rest

January 16, 2014

Matthew 11:28-30 AMP
28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.]{I will give you rest}

  • The condition for receiving this rest is to simply “Come” to Jesus.
  • This rest is given

29 Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest (relief and ease and refreshment and recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls.

  • The condition for receiving this rest is to be “yoked” with and “learn” from Jesus. {to walk with Him}
  • This rest is found
  • Jeremiah 6:16 … Thus says the Lord,
    “Stand by the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths, Where the good way is, and walk in it; And you will find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’
  • Isaiah 30:20-21 … Although the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, your teachers will be hidden no more; with your own eyes you will see them. Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”

30 For My yoke is wholesome (useful, good—not harsh, hard, sharp, or pressing, but comfortable, gracious, and pleasant), and My burden is light and easy to be borne.

***

Are you “walking” with Jesus? Are you listening intently for His voice/direction? Are you listening intently to apply/obey the wisdom you learn from the Lord Jesus Christ?

Today, if you hear the voice of Jesus Christ the Lord
Do not harden your hearts
Be careful to listen and obey
To walk in His “way”
The “way” He directs!

Then you will “find” rest for your soul. -Heb 3:7-19
.

My people have forgotten Me
Thus says the Lord
They burn incense to worthless gods and so
Stand at the crossroads and see
They have stumbled in the way they should go
Consider your path
They no longer follow the ancient paths
Ask for the ancient paths
Instead they walk in bypaths 
Where the good way is  
And on roads not built up.
And walk in it –

Then you will find rest for your souls.
-Jeremiah 18:15, 6:16
