“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,” Jeremiah 6:16.
“The secret to climbing a mountain is not carrying too much weight….”
The Spirit of the LORD showed me a man who was climbing a mountain. There was a pathway before him that meandered and continued to go upwards.
He carried a heavy backpack and held a staff as he went up the mountain. The terrain would change and would twist and turn as he went up higher and higher.
The load that he was carrying seemed to get heavier and heavier, and yet he kept going. I watched as he came to a cliff and then crawled up this cliff wall and embankment and then reached the top.
Here there was another path that kept going towards the top of the mountain.
The LORD then said:
“The race is not to the swift nor to those of great skill, but all must carry their own weight and cross up the mountain towards a higher place in Me.
There is a road and a pathway that I AM calling my servants to cross.
Many have attempted these roads in Me, but some have given up because it is much too arduous for their journey; but if you continue and mark your steps well, you will see that there are ancient steps marked out on this pathway.
You will find rest along the way. You will hear the echoes of those who have gone before.
I will feed you beside these streams. Continue climbing; don’t turn to the left or to the right.
Set your face like flint and only follow the footsteps that I have marked out for you.”
