“And He is before all things and IN Him, all things consist.”-Colossians 1:17
I feel like I have said this a million times, but I am obsessed with “No Longer Slaves” by Bethel Music. When they belt out “you split the sea so I could walk right through it”, I feel the words so deeply in my soul.
You see, God has never taken trials out of my life. Just like when Moses and the Isrealites were trying to escape and the Egyptian army were chasing after them. They came to the Red Sea and were freaking out, for lack of better words.
God did not take away the sea. He did not take away the Egyptian army. He MADE a way. He parted the sea so they walked through it and closed it as soon as they got to the other side.
& He has done this in my life so many times. He did not take away my “sea” or “army of people coming to get me”. He made me a way through it. A way to survive, persevere, and come out stronger than I did going in.
The devil likes to make us believe that God has left us in our greatest times of need.
He starts to whisper in our ears that God is gone. Or was He even really ever there to begin with?
“How could He ever want to come help someone as screwed up as you? Why would he make a way for YOU?” the wicked one continues to whisper, trying to make us falter in our faith.
That is exactly the time when you need to stand up and literally say “I AM A CHILD OF GOD. HE LOVES ME AND WILL CONTINUE TO MAKE A WAY FOR ME NO MATTER WHAT YOU SAY AND HOW I FEEL. HE IS GOOD. HE IS LOVE. & YOU HAVE NO SAY IN ANY OF THIS.”
No matter what you are going through today, HE WILL MAKE A WAY.
No matter how lonely and desolate you feel, HE WILL MAKE A WAY.
No matter how lost and defeated you feel, HE WILL MAKE A WAY.
No matter what. No matter when. No matter how. He can and will make a way.
Head up, soldier. YOU are a child of the One and Only God.
