(Jeremiah 6:16) “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.”
Like cars on a highway we are all on different paths and at different stages of our Christians walk. People will cross your path and how you act and react toward them determines how long you stay on your current path. One person may be further along in their faith than you are, and another person may have faith weaker than yours and their love walk may not be as far along as yours; they may still have idols evident to all that they need to get rid of; but do not judge! (James 2: 12-13) “Speak and act as those who are going to be judged by the law that gives freedom, because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment!”
You do not know where anyone is on their path and where they came from and what hurts they need to have healed and issues they still need to overcome. There are crossroads that will come your way; decisions you will need to make; what job to take, a ministry to help out with or an answer to give. Whatever the case may be, do not let confusion cause you to make a wrong decision for you will have to reap the consequences of all choices you make whether good or bad. Do not let anyone force you into making quick decisions either without first consulting God so you make the right choice. (Matthew 7:7-11) “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask Him!”
Whatever decisions you make; whatever you act on is what you will have to live with, so do not make hasty decisions; ask God first and wait on His answer! (Proverbs 19:2) “It is not good to have zeal without knowledge, nor to be hasty and miss the way.” There are also crossroads and intersections that will meet you on your path; people that God wants to use to help you in an answer to one of your prayers. Be patient with God and trust Him to answer as He says He will. He may be using someone to help in bringing the answer to your prayers to pass and they have not caught up to where you are; be patient with God and trust Him. “He will never leave you nor forsake you.” God is loving in all His ways; the cross of Jesus speaks enough for itself about the love of God. Trust Him to answer your prayers and provide for you; be patient with Him and trust Him to get you to the next destination victoriously!
(Psalm 27:13-14) “I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for
