In the spirit of transparency many of us have pondered this question at least once before in our lifetime: how will God make a way when there seems to be no way.
With that said, let’s briefly examine Abraham’s impasse. Abraham found himself in a conundrum when he took Isaac, his promised son up to the mountain to sacrifice him before God. Yet, just in the knick of time God provided a solution.
The Bible confirms in Genesis 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).”
Abraham was typical man and there’s no doubt he initially pondered the same question as mentioned above, but in the end he like many others in both the OT and NT will scriptural testify that when you can’t explain how it happened, then you know it was God that did it!
Here’s the deal, God makes a way when there seems to be no way when we ask the Lord to teach us the way to go. Moses wrote, “Teach me your ways so I may know you and continue to find favor with you” (Ex. 33:13).
Once we know the Lord’s attributes we are better able to discern His ways for our life. David wrote, “Teach me your way, O Lord and I will walk in your truth” (Psalm 86:11).
Before I close, let’s quickly examine one more NT gospel giant; Paul!! Paul understood how God makes a way when there seems to be no way when he wrote, “It is God who is at work in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure” (Phil. 2:13,14).
Saints, when the going gets tough it’s incumbent upon us to trust the Lord to do the things that are humanly impossible while we continue to do what is humanly possible (faith with works).
I leave you with this truth; no matter what predicament, conundrum, problem, or difficulty you are facing the Lord will aways make a way when there seems to be absolutely no solution in sight. It is God’s unequivocal will to always provide a solution to any problem we are facing.
Therefore, I encourage you (including myself) to look at the biblical guidelines in complying with God’s will so that you can experience His all sufficient grace, His enabling power and His irrefutable sovereignty working in your life.
