Rest For Our Journey


This is what the Lord says, \”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\” – Jeremiah 6:16 NIV

Jeremiah 6:16 Niv


Sometimes, while we\’re going along on our life journey, we may find at times that we don\’t know what to do. Sometimes we may be confused, anxious, sad, hurt, rejected, prideful, lonely, depressed, scared, bitter, and so many more emotions. The list goes on.

We stand at a crossroads and wonder which way to go. 

It\’s difficult when everything seems to be crashing in our lives, and our soul seems clouded over to remember that God has made the way plain and clear when this happens. 

He says that there is an ancient path. A path that has been established and certain. A way that has already been paved for you. 

Jerimiah 6:16 Tells us that the right path for living has been marked out by God. But the people didn\’t take God\’s path; they went their own way instead. 

Today, we face the same decisions going God\’s old but true way or following a new path that may end up being harmful.

Let\’s remember the only way to find peace and rest for our souls is to walk on God\’s Path.

He wants you to look. Wait and look again at the direction you should go. Then ask Him which way, Lord? Ask Him for a good way, the way of guidance, direction, and peace. 

Seek God in your every day journey and rest for your soul —your mind, will & emotions will come when you do. 


Lord, thank you for a way and a path in life that brings rest to life. Thank you for always planning out a way before us that is sure and steady. Thank you for being the God of rest today. Rest to our minds. In Jesus\’ name, Amen.
