Daily Bible Reading: Jeremiah 5 - 6
Verse of the Day: Jeremiah 6:16 – “Thus saith Jehovah, 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.”
Today’s reading stands out to us in five verbs and one conjunction. If you mark your Bible, underline these five verbs – stand, look, ask, walk, and find rest. I thought about the concept of “Stop, look and listen.” All during our lives we come to the crossroads of life. The word of God says to stand (stop) and consider the ways – (look at the paths) – ask His guidance (listen), and THEN walk in the right way. We will find that no matter what the way brings, our souls will be at rest in God.
Finally, notice the conjunction – but. Beware that we are not like Israel was and say, “No, I will do it my way.”
Prayer: Father, change my conjunction from but to and I will walk in Your way. Amen.
