Thus says the Lord : “Stand by the roads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls… (Jeremiah 6:16 ESV)
Just as in Jeremiah’s day, our call to is to follow the ancient path. There is a trend to find the new thing and get on board, thinking that maybe now someone has discovered something. The new thing always comes with fantastic claims, and since we are so eager for them to be true, we get on board. Instead, it is the ancient path that leads to rest for your soul. What is this ancient path? It is the story of the Lord, his love for his people and the laws that constitute his people as a blessed nation. For us, this means trusting in Jesus as we put to death the ways of the flesh and walk instead in the spirit that God has given us graciously through our faith.
Lord, thank you for the ancient path that you have made that leads to rest for our weary souls.
