This is what the Lord says: Jeremiah 6
“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.
But you said, ‘We will not walk in it.
I know it sounds like God is a punisher in the OT,
But that is not who he is. He is love. The way it
sounds or reads, often sounds like God Loves us
but, really hates us! Here’s the thing, if we don’t
treasure his wisdom we get the fruit of “our own
way” ……for instance complaining, holding gurdges,
being angry, full of hate or hellfire…….
it will bring calamatiy and chaos to our lives if we are
filled with those thoughts (and ways) that are not
Christ-Like. God’s ways always bring peace, charity,
loving kindness, righteousness, and
HIS REST (being at rest, within your soul).
