“Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. 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 43:18-19
The Lord promises His people that He will always make a way. Just because you don’t see how it will be done, doesn’t mean He can’t and won’t do it for you. You may be in the last hour, running out of time, wondering how and when God is going to come through like He said He would. Sometimes, it can be tough waiting on the Lord. But He always comes through.
He always comes through, if you wait.
He says in His Word, “The trying of our faith produces patience” (see James 1:3). Maybe your faith in God is being tried and you are having to trust and depend on Him like never before, but God says, He will make a way out of no way for you. Stay vigilant. Stay persistent. Stay in faith. Look for His way out like you’re looking for lost keys. Saying to yourself, I know it has to be here somewhere! And, it is. Don’t lean to your own understanding and get out of uncomfortable situations too early. Wait on God. You will see Him do the impossible for you. You will see His favor for you. And the next time you face a problem of gigantic proportion, you will look back and say, “If He came through for me yesterday, He will come through today, and tomorrow and the next day.”
He is the same yesterday, today and forever (see Hebrews 13:8)!
Challenge: Start a journal and write down every time God comes through for you and makes a way out of no way in your life. The next time your faith is being tested, look back in your journal and you’ll be reminded that if God did it once, He will do it again…and again!
Father, you are good and faithful. Even when we put our own selves in troubling situations, you know how to make a way out of no way for us. Thank you! Help us to trust you more. Help our faith in you to deepen. Even when situations don’t feel good or look good, you are good and you are faithful. Show us your way out and help us not to lean on our own understanding. Be glorified in our lives. In Jesus precious name, Amen.
