Jeremiah 6:16(NLT) This is what the Lord says: “Stop at the crossroads and look around. Ask for the old, godly way, and walk in it. Travel its path, and you will find rest for your souls. But you reply, ‘No, that’s not the road we want!’

Teach Us, Lord!
Scripture revives us by telling us the outcome of our experiences based on our choice to either obey or to disobey God’s instructions. Because God is Love, His authority does not prescribe to any and every choice of living, because He offers us Himself. He is the Way of Life! Yet, he gives us the opportunity to choose – our way or His Way. Is it a trick? Not at all. He loves us too much to play tricks. However, there is a trickster who hates God so much that he would do everything he could to lure us into believing there are shortcuts we can take to get what we want and where we want to go in life. Don’t vacillate between shortcuts and direct obedience. Embrace the choice of following God’s instructions because you know He is offering us the best of His love. Most of our difficulties are a result of choosing to go directly into what His instructions are meant to protect us from. Teach us, Lord!
