There is a beautiful passage in Isaiah 30:18 that says: “Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; He rises to show you compassion.  For the Lord is a God of justice.  Blessed are all who wait for Him!”

Sometimes in this journey of life we tend to rush ahead and leave God behind.  We need to remember to wait for Him.

The passage from Isaiah continues:  “Whether you turn to the right or to the left your ears will hear a voice behind you saying “This is the way; walk in it”.

If we wait for God we will hear His voice telling us in which direction to go.

This is exactly what God says in 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”.

In other words when we are not sure what to do and we are standing at a crossroad in our life, we need to search God’s Word for the direction He wants us to take.

    That’s very true – most of us have experienced such a ‘crossroads’ situation in life, some are at it now and many will reach that point, sooner or later! Looks as if one cannot escape from reaching that juncture of one’s life – a kind of border separating the first and second half of life, or the second and third quarter of one’s life. However, not all may be expected to experience such a situation, but majority of folks do go through it whether they like it or not. Life is not only short but also strange, and hence, beyond human comprehension!

      Thank you for reading and taking the time to leave a comment.
      I find myself at crossroads a lot of the time – not sure what direction to take when certain opportunities or misfortunes
      occur and then I have to find a quiet place and just be still with God as I seek His direction.

        You are welcome! Yes, a quiet place and stillness with God results in knowing the right direction as pointed out by Him – crossroads in one’s life means change of direction leading to a new purpose in one’s life pre-destined by the Omnipotent!
