Three times in the last few weeks the Lord has placed the word, “Crossroads” in front of me.
The first time was in studying about the Wheat and Tares and learning the territory where Jesus did much of his teachings, He was in the crossroads between the military and a highway.
That triggered the name of our college and career ministry at Olive – Crossroads.
And then this morning – it appeared in a devotional I was reading.
I decided to look up the word crossroads to see exactly what it is the Lord was trying to show me. Here’s what I found:
Crossroads: the point at which two highways intersect . . . . and the second definition . . . a point at which a crucial decision must be made that will have far-reaching consequences.
Each day we have to make decisions.
Each day the decisions we make has a consequence.
Each day those consequences will impact the next generation.
Jeremiah 6:16 reads, “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.'”
What can we learn from that verse? When we get to crossroads we need to do the following:
- Seek the Lord.
- Remember all He has done before for you and for your ancestors.
- Do what He says to do.
- REST in the decision He has given you to make.
- Don’t be like Judah – obey God and follow His commands.
I don’t know what decisions you are facing today but I want to encourage you to make it based on your personal, Biblical conviction and not based on what is common to others or even the easy way out.
Remember what He has done in the past . . .
I’m praying for you,
