NEW GOALS AND OLD PLANS

Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls. Jeremiah 6:16



As Christians look forward to a new year, many will ultimately hope for better outcomes for the future. Some will resolve to lose weight, get in better physical shape, earn a better job, or some other worthy endeavor. There will be many new goals, with many new plans, most of which will be met with futility.  Either the dieting will be too hard or expensive, or the clock rings too early to do the exercise video.
But for the disciple who desires to have a closer walk with the Lord, a new goal must be achieved by an old plan, not a new one. God said to stand in the ways and “ask for the old paths, where the good way is.” Having a better relationship with God can’t be gained by new programs, flashy ideas or fanciful notions. No, this goal can only be gained by walking with God and standing for that which He stands.
Using a Biblical worldview is not popular in our day and age. But God has called us to be a holy priesthood and a peculiar people. Through Bible study, prayer and worship we will be able to have a closer walk with the Lord, and then we will find rest for our souls.
