ask for the ancient paths,
ask where the good way is and walk in it,
and you will find
rest for your souls.
This verse has been precious to me. I can remember God first showing it to me when I began a REAL relationship with Jesus.
I thought, "Yea. I'm at a crossroads. I can continue to live the worldly life I had been living....OR I could choose His ways- His path.
Which may at times be lonely.
Which may at times be rugged, not smooth.
When I walk in that path....
I will find REST.
It reminded me of so many other Truths- from Deuteronomy that
says to choose for myself life or death, blessings or curses.....when Jesus says that wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, but small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
I want to be "a few." I want walk in "the good way."
I choose Life.
