Way Maker

God has always been a Way Maker. In Genesis, we can see the pattern of God saving His people and working on their behalf at all times. In the garden after the fall, God provides a covering for Adam and Eve and a promise of a future hope. He told Noah to build an ark that would save his family and the animals from the flood. When Abraham went to lay Isaac on the alter, God provided a ram to be the sacrifice.  When Joseph was kidnapped, enslaved and imprisoned, God still had a plan. In a roundabout way, God raised Joseph to a place of power and authority that provided rescue and made a place for the house of Israel in the years of famine. When Moses led the nation of Israel out of Egypt, God parted the waters of the Red Sea and led them to the land of promise.

As believers, on our own journey toward the promise of God, we can find ourselves in the space between our former captivity and the land of promise. For many of us, we are standing on the shores of the Red Sea with an insurmountable road block and the enemy at our back. Even still, God is faithful to make a way for us to live in freedom and to accomplish His purposes in the world.

Jesus said in John 14:6 (NASB) —  

I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

Ultimately, Jesus died and rose again to make a way for all of us to be reconnected in a relationship with our Heavenly Father. He has invited us to be a part of what He is doing in the world and He has given us the power through His Spirit to accomplish it.

Jesus is the one who makes the way. All He requires from us is our faith. Every step we take we are trusting and believing that God is who He says He is, and He will do what He says He will do. Wherever you are today, whatever miracle you need, bring that to Jesus. Lay it before the Way Maker and trust that He is working on your behalf to bring you hope and peace.

Like the nation of Israel on the other side of the Red Sea, when you see Jesus move and work in your life, respond with joy and gratitude. Let worship be our response to the power of God in our lives.
