 God-tracking is sticking with those ancient paths

 Psalm 25:4
Show me your ways, O LORD, teach me your paths

We are very privileged to have a good road infrastructure in the UK. Though often congested, our motorways are well maintained and well planned. Even our “A” and “B” roads are secure and easily accessible. However, it was not always like this. In ancient times there were no 3-lane motorways. In fact, there were no tarred roads at all. Like anywhere in the world, people could only travel from village to village and town to town using well-trodden dirt roads. These roads became known as the ancient trade routes and were frequently used by people on foot, horseback and in carriages. In the Bible lands, camel caravans were made up of many groups of traders and families travelling together between main centres, using ancient paths. These travellers were relatively safe provided they remained on these ancient trade routes. If they approached a crossroad they might stop and ask one another, “Where is the ancient path that we may travel along it in peace.” To deviate from these paths and take a bypass would almost certainly spell disaster for any traveller.

The prophet, Jeremiah addressed his people at the verge of national disaster, when they stood at the crossroads of history. He said, “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.” Later he said, “Yet my people have forgotten me; they burn incense to worthless idols, which made them stumble in their ways and in the ancient paths. They made them walk in bypaths and on roads not built up.”

Sadly, we live in a very similar society today. Twenty-first century Christians are standing at the crossroads of the choice between God’s ancient way or the compromising way of postmodern humanism. The danger is, they will set foot on the side road that will take them off God’s good ancient path into disaster.

Dear God Tracker, are you facing a choice in life? Are you on the verge of wondering off the well-trodden ways of God’s word and the fellowship of his Holy Spirit, looking for alternative ways of following Jesus? Just as in Bible times, many of the modern alleyways and side roads of our cities are very dangerous and insecure. Likewise, wondering off the ancient paths of a Bible based morality and doctrine is gravely dangerous. Only the Lord knows your paths ahead. Only by fellowshipping with Holy Spirit and remaining true to the uncompromising Word of God will you and I easily trod those ancient paths of godly purpose, so walking safely into the future where we’ll find rest for our souls.

God-tracking is sticking with those ancient paths

Jeremiah 6:16
Jeremiah 18:15
Matthew 11:29


 Only what matters to you, matters to me

Lord, I need your rest. I have been travelling this road for too long without asking where the ancient paths are. I’m sorry if I have missed your way and taken a side road, O Lord. I want to come with you, on your pathways, to a quiet place where I may find rest for my soul. Help me to track your will; help me to never turn aside and follow my own plans. Only what matters to you, matters to me. I love you Lord. Amen.”
