Standing at a Crossroad

Daily reading: Jeremiah 6:16 & Acts 8: 26-38
Friday May 12, 2017

The LORD proclaims: Stop at the crossroads and look around; ask for the ancient paths.  Where is the good way?  Then walk it and find a resting place for yourselves.  But you say, “We don’t go!”  Jeremiah 6:16

Do you find yourself at a crossroads today?  Maybe it is with a decision that needs to be made for your family, or maybe it is happening at work, or maybe you feel that God is pulling you in a new direction and you are in a place of discernment.

Our God is a God of the journey.  We have studied this week the story of Philip and the Ethiopian court official on the wilderness road.  Take time once again to go and walk.  Maybe you can carve out time before the day gets too hot to be in the desert. 

As you walk, pray “where is the good way?”  May this prayer help you to find the way forward in your spiritual, personal and professional life.

Prayer: God show me the good way with each step that I take forward.  Amen.
