Wesley's Notes for Jeremiah 6:16

6:16 Stand - He now turns his speech to the people, and gives them counsel; by a metaphor taken from travellers, that being in doubt of their way, stand still, and consider, whether the direction they have received from some false guide, be right or not.

His word is so powerful; we must trust, if you ask he will give anything in his name.

There is clear warning to us in that we have deviated from the ways of the LORD and not living like our fore fathers.God is providing a solution which is optional i may choose to or not to however there are consequences for of either way.I thank God because when we choose His ways there is promise of peace in our souls

This verse was referred to in a card given to me by my father's Bible group when I was diagnosed with breast cancer for the third time. I believe the verse says that if you walk in the path of the Lord as the Lord has told us for centuries, that you will be at peace with yourself and what life has handed you. God gives us all a path to follow in life. If we follow these paths in a way that honors The Lord, we can overcome any obstacles put before us.

i think it's a warning against "new" or "other"corrupt paths/gospels which lead not to true salvation.it also confirms that God's word remains uncorrupted, even from days of old to now! if we seek its truth today, we can find it as it were when spoken by the (real)prophets of old!

I think that cross roads are there in life. And the LORD has provided a way:- To ask from those who have Spiritual Authority over our lives and seek to walk in the LORD's way.
