God is faithful. He will always make a way.

God is faithful. He will always make a way.

“Then says the Lord, who makes a way in the sea and a path through the mighty waters … Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” ~ Isaiah 43:16, 18-19

Lord, You remind me often who You are — especially when I feel overwhelmed with inadequacies, or those things which seem impossible. You taught me just this week that You are the “Waymaker, Miracle Worker, Promise Keeper, Light in the darkness — Oh! How I love that song. It’s words cause hope and confidence to rise up within me because I know You are with me — I am not alone.

You are for me, so who can be against me?

You are teaching me to wait on You — not with reluctance, but with expectation and calm. But You are also teaching me to be ready to move when You say move — even if the Red Sea is still in front of me or the waters of the River Jordan are at their highest peak. Its not the Red Sea or the waters of the Jordan that divide on their own, its YOU responding to our obedient faith that makes the way possible … that way You’ve prepared. The destiny You planned. The purpose You wish to fulfill.

It takes ME trusting the Word You’ve given me as I have waited expectantly for Your perfect timing.

You are the Waymaker.

You are the Miracle Worker.

You are the Promise Keeper.

And You are my Light in the darkness.

I believe You, Lord. Help my unbelief. Open my ears to hear clearly Your instructions and grant me courage to step into the water, knowing that my trust in You brings You glory and puts a smile on Your face.

Thank You for believing in me, Lord — for trusting me with the call You’ve placed on my life. I’m not worthy, but I am willing for I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength. When I am weak, You are strong.

You are amazing, God.

In Jesus Name I pray,


(This is the song I was referring to as I thanked the Lord for what He is teaching. It’s sung by Sinach, a beautiful Nigerian singer. Her music is so annointed. I’m thankful the Lord led me to her.)


Please don’t carry your burdens alone. I would be honored to pray for you.

Have you had a chance to read Faith Notes ~ Lori Cunningham: Where Was God During My Violent Abuse?

I’ve only known Lori Cunningham a few short weeks through an online friendship, but I know there is something very special about her. I think of the beautiful, delicate rose whose petals have fallen to the ground only to be crushed by uncaring feet. But the result is the sweet aroma that infuses its surroundings with beauty and grace.

You see, Lori is that delicate rose who was crushed as a child, but she found the faithfulness of the Lord in her anguish and now her life emits the sweet aroma of Christ to the world around her. Although her story is very painful to read, she has found the presence of God throughout — even in the most vile moments. Lori clings to His outstretched hand, and He imparts grace and healing.
