1 Kings 13:9-10 – For so was it charged me by the word of the Lord, saying, Eat no bread, nor drink water, nor turn again by the same way that thou camest. So he went another way, and returned not by the way that he came to Beth–el.
Meditation – we can’t go the same way we came; things are different now and new paths must be taken. In this, we cannot be afraid to change course. These new and incredible things The Lord has for our life are in a different place and we can no longer lean on the false security of knowing we can always go back to where we came from; there’s nothing there anymore. We have to learn to find comfort in the Lord, and not in our current surroundings. Those things can change; The Lord never will. New paths; new rules.
