“Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein,” Jeremiah 6:16.
Before map makers had arrived to America the Native Americans had developed an extensive trail system that allowed them to find their way through extensive forests.
In time these trails became invaluable to others, and allowed them to find their way, when most everyone could get easily lost.
They found a way of bending the trees in such a manner that they then were more recognizable, and provided a marker to those in the forest. Today, one can still find some of the remnants of these trees as they serve as reminders to many.
The Native American tribes would create a marker that would bend at certain points on the tree, thus allowing travelers to see these markers in all types of weather conditions, as well as from great distances.
But God tells us that we can find our way through the intricate paths that we would come across in this world. His markers are His word and the Holy Spirit that would guide us into all truth. The paths that the Almighty provides for us are ancient, and those of old knew that they could rely upon them.
These markers are not seen with natural eyes, but the eyes of the spirit can easily see them. The debris and thickets of this world are wiped away, as one travels upon them.
One doesn’t need a GPS or any other form of navigational device to aid them in their travels, for His voice and word if sufficient.
