He Will Make A Way

In life we often encounter moments that seem impassable.  For example, “A family deals with the tragedy of a car wreck in which their son was ridding.  A drunken driver hits the car head on.  The driver is killed and his wife is killed.  Their son is in the back seat with their daughter.  Her life is slipping away.  You as the son’s father are in church when your phone begins to vibrate.  You see that it is your wife who was at home.  You immediately leave church to call her back.  To you shock you hear her say, “Our son has been in an accident.  Two are dead and I don’t know if our son will make it.”

In such a moment, what would you do?  Would you turn to panic or would you turn to prayer?  This morning I was gripped by the word of God in Isaiah 41-45, I John 3, and Psalm 73.  Here is what the Lord said in Isaiah 43: 16, “Thus says the Lord, who makes a way in the sea, a path in the mighty water.”

In the midst of all that was coming toward Israel, God reminds Israel that He had always made a way for them to get through the tough times of life.  The verse we just read reminds Israel that God had made  a way through the Red Sea (Exodus 14).

Brothers and sisters God has always made a way and will always make a way for those who are walking in obedience to Him.  The Psalmist wrote, “My flesh and my heart fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever,” 73:26.

Our God does not just love us occasionally, His love is forever.  However we must not overlook something, “We must call to Him and we must come to Him in holiness.”  Isaiah continues to write, “Yet you did not call upon Me, O Jacob… You have burdened me with your sins; you have wearied me with your iniquities,” 43: 22,24.

Often we find ourselves in a mess because we fail to call upon God and we fail to walk in holiness.  But be assured even when we fail, God will make a way for us.  What is this way?  “I am he who blots out your transgressions for my own sake, and I will not remember your sins,” 43:25. I praise His name that He makes a way for us to be forgiven when we fail and He makes a way for us to overcome in every circumstance of life.

I wonder, “Are you facing situations that seem to be impassable?”  If so, take heart He will make a way.

Oh, the story in the beginning is a true story and the father did cry out to God and he four years later is still testifying that God made a way. “His son was hurt but God spared his son and this father praises God and is progressing in His faith.”
