God Will Make a Way

Encouragement for your daily walk with God 

He was awakened in the middle of the night by a phone call. “Your sister-in-law, her husband, and the four boys were seriously injured in a car accident. The eight year old boy is in very critical condition.” 

He and his wife grieved, pouring their hearts out to God. After a little while, Don Moen scribbled some words and composed the music for a song that, to this day, offers a deep sense of hope in the midst of difficult times.

God will make a way, 
Where there seems to be no way; 
He works in ways we cannot see, 
He will make a way for me. 
He will be my guide, 
Hold me closely to His side; 
With love and strength for each new day, 
He will make a way. He will make a way!

From the perspective of a Christ follower, to have hope, is to have God. To have peace, is to have God — by placing your trust/faith/confidence in Him.  

In times when our vision is blurred by sorrow, the eyes of faith are more important than ever. George McDonald, mentor to C.S. Lewis, once said, "I think faith can never have a greater victory than when it will trust even in the midst of darkness and doubt and temptation." 

Victorious faith is not about our faith, it’s about our confidence in a victorious God, whose will is not nullified by our suffering. Do you believe it? That God will make a way where there seems to be no way. He works in ways we cannot see . . . He will make a way of me!

That kind of faith will lead to a hopeful expectation of the fulfillment of God’s promises; a faith that is not crushed by sorrow, but strengthened through it.

I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in Him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15.13
