“Yet the Lord pleads with you still: Ask where the good road is, the godly paths you used to walk in, in the days of long ago. Travel there, and you will find rest for your souls. But you reply, ‘No, that is not the road we want!’” (Jeremiah 6: 16, the Living Bible)
God is guiding us. His wisdom is calling us to do what honors His purpose and what is also just right for us.
We can earnestly seek God’s direction. We can stop getting out ahead of Him and our best lives with our own willful sense of what we want. We can listen to our hearts and recognize that spiritual sense, that Truth within that is leading us to a nobler way—one that is holier, and which also leads to more honest joy and satisfaction. We can learn how to discern when we are rejecting God’s right road for one that appears more in tune with the world’s opinions and distractions.
We can remember that progress often means a return to our roots—to our godly heritage, our innocence, our innate desire to be and do good. Following this good road, our divine purpose, we will do more than simply accumulate material things and accomplishments. We will find rest for our souls—an inner peace and joy and power that feels like coming home.
