God is waiting for you, will we take the time to give to our spiritual needs and the needs of God, by drawing near to God. If we do not do this, we are saying we are in control of our lives and don’t need God. We all need God if we realize this or not, God is the one who breathed life into us from the beginning, and wants to breathe into us, a new life again, each moment of each day. At times we may think it or not, we act as if God is ancient history, best left to the past and not to be unearthed, but left to the archeologists. Ancient paths are not ancient history to be forgotten. Let’s read and discover what the Lord wants to say to us through scripture, a love letter to us.
Jeremiah 6:16New International Version (NIV)
This is what the Lord says:
“Stand at the crossroads and look;
ask for the ancient paths,
ask where the good way is, and walk in it,
and you will find rest for your souls.
But you said, ‘We will not walk in it.’
Why do we not want to walk in a good way, and find rest for our souls?
Do we have a longing for stillness, to find rest from the business of life?
There has to be a desire, a longing for continual restoration and renewal of our heart, and the realization that we cannot do this work without the aid of God.
Psalm 25: 5b “On you, I wait all the day”
Jeremiah 29:11-13New Living Translation (NLT)
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. 12 In those days when you pray, I will listen.13 If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.
