What does a “crossroads” suggest to you?
Is it always just an intersection of roads?
Can it be a crossing from one lifestyle to another?
Can it be a junction in the middle of a small town?
Can it be a place where differing ideas come to a juncture where a compromise has to be made?
Are you in a place of compromise?
If you are in a place where you are forced to compromise your beliefs and your Faith in God’s promises for you, then the crossroads is coming into your view.
“Thus says The LORD: When you come to the crossroads, stand in the way and see ask for the ancient path, where the good way is, and walk in it. Then you will find rest for your souls. But they said: “We will not walk in it.”
Also I set watchmen over you saying; “Listen to the sound of the trumpet!” But they said “We will not listen!” Jeremiah 6:6-7.
What does this sound like to you as a believer?
Many are coming to a crossroads that has been of their own making, rebelling against the truth of what The LORD is saying.
They have ceded over to the adversary their ability to stand on what God is showing them. T hey have compromised they faith in God with the things of this world.
There is a rest for the people of God, but they refuse to enter it. They are setting themselves up for “Korah’s Rebellion” (Hebrews 4; Numbers 16).
But I call out to you who have compromised, to really ask yourself;
“Where am I really going?
What has caused me to come to this place in my life where I have no direction that will really satisfy me and my life?
What am I really missing in my life that I thought would be the best way to go?
Where can I really go from here?”
The answer will always be; “Come to Jesus!”
For He has been saying to you all along;
“Come unto Me, you who are weary and heavily laden, and I will give you rest. Come and learn of Me for I am meek and lowly of heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30.
“For you shall know the truth and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32.
“Stand fast therefor in the liberty in which Christ has made you free, and be not entangled again in the yoke of bondage.” Galatians 5:1.
Jesus is the “Ancient Path”, He is where the good way is; He is where the path that leads to peace really is.
It is time for you to return.
