Promise of the Day: Jeremiah 6:16

in Promise of the Day


Today’s promise is Jeremiah 6:16:The Old Path

Thus says the Lord:

“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.”

That fact that we are saved by grace through Christ does not mean that God changed His mind–or plan, for that matter. God is still righteous, and unrighteousness cannot stand in His presence. We still can do nothing to make ourselves clean enough to be received by Him–except put on the robe of righteousness procured for us by His Son. The covering of Christ allows us to remain in His presence, where we are gradually transformed, from glory to glory. Not that we can disregard the old paths, but that we can walk with confidence and faith, the narrow road before us. Now we can ask for the old paths–and glorify God for giving us a guide and helper along the way!

Heavenly Father, thank You so much for loving me enough to send Your Son to die for me, that I might be covered by His righteousness. And thank You Jesus for sending me The Holy Spirit to help me to walk in a way that is pleasing to You! You do not set Your children up for failure, Lord, but for victory! And for that I will praise You! Amen!

Have a victorious day in The Lord!
