Made A Way

“Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.” (Isaiah 43:19)

How many of us can testify that God made a way?

Can testify that you’re standing here only because he made a way?

We all have been in situations where we have wondered if there is a way out of our problem.

Illustration: Abraham found himself in such a predicament when he took Isaac, his only son up to the mountain to sacrifice him before God. Yet, just in the knick of time God provided a solution. The Bible says, “Gen. 22:9-14, “Abraham built an altar and bound his son Isaac and laid him on the altar, on top of the wood. Then he reached out his hand and took the knife to slay his son. But the angel of the Lord called out to him from heaven. “Abraham! Abraham! Here I am, he replied; do not lay a hand on the boy, he said. Do not do anything to him. Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me your son, your only son. Abraham looked up and there in a thicket he saw a ram caught by its horns. He went over and took the ram and sacrificed it as a burnt offering instead of his son. So Abraham called that place The Lord will provide. (El-Shaddai)”

No matter what predicament, problem or difficulty you are facing the Lord has a way when there seems to be absolutely no solution in sight. God always provides a solution to any problem we are facing in the will of God. It is important that we like Paul understand how God makes a way when there seems to be no way. Paul wrote, “It is God who is at work in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.” (Phil. 2:13,14) In order to be more like Jesus Christ we need to allow the Lord to motivate us and enable us to do the things that are humanly impossible.

There is nothing that is impossible! I am standing here, rather sitting here, writing to you all to express how God made a way. School seemed like a far out fantasy, the prospects of continuing my studies at the University of Toronto did not seem probable with the money I needed to make in order to get back in. Last week something happened, a way was made. With help from a great person that I know God sent my way to help make a way I was able to pay off any school fees for the past year and the upcoming one. With almost a year on my back, kicking and screaming, throwing in the towel GOD MADE A WAY. Around 10 thousands dollars earned, all the long days and nights were worth it because I can see, in a spiritual realm, mountains moving and stronghold breaking. I don’t know how but he did it, he ALWAYS does it. A few months ago I wondered how I could make it through this test but he had it all figured out.

I don’t know why he kept me, saved me, helped me but I’m grateful!

God specializes in showing His power in hopeless situations. Israel was in just such a place when God parted the sea before them (Ex. 13:17-14:31). Daniel was protected in the lion’s den (Dan. 6:10-23). Paul and Silas were delivered from prison (Acts 16:25-40). We must believe that it gets better and ask the Lord to make us increasingly more like Christ in our thoughts, words and deeds.

This week’s song is Made A Way by Travis Greene

Lyrics:
Made a way
Don’t know how but you did it
Made a way
Standing here not knowing how we’ll get through this test
But holding onto faith you know best
Nothing can catch you by surprise
You’ve got this figured out and you’re watching us now
But when it looks as if we can’t win
You wrap us in your arm and step in
And everything we need you supply
You got this in control
And now we know that

You made a way
When our backs were against the wall
And it looked as if it was over
You made a way
And we’re standing here
Only because you made a way
You made a way

Now we’re here
Looking back on where we come from
Because of you and nothing we’ve done
To deserve the love and mercy you’ve shown
But your grace was strong enough to pick us up

And you made a way
When our backs were against the wall
And it looked as if it was over
You made a way
And we’re standing here
Only because you made a way [x2]

You move mountains
You cause walls to fall
With your power
You perform miracles
There is nothing that’s impossible
And we’re standing here
Only because you made a way

You made a way [x4]

Don’t know how but you did it
Made a way
Don’t know how but you did it
Made a way

Don’t know how but you did it [x4]

Don’t know why but I’m grateful [x4]

Don’t know how but I’m grateful

And we’re standing here
Only because you made
And we’re standing here
Only because you made a way
And we’re standing here
Only because you made
