“God Made a Way!”

 

Dear Friends, God made a way for you and He made a way for me.  A pathway that was once littered with sin and debris from our human nature and wrong choices has become clear and access has been opened for every heart that truly seeks and longs for Him.

Imagine, before His holy throne, God made a way for there to be a space just for you to come to pray and worship.  There is no longer a need for you to carry burdens alone.  There is no longer a need to second guess the this or that’s of life.  He gave us an offer of Himself to approach Him and to come before His presence with it all: “Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need,” (Hebrews 4:16).  

God made a way through the life and death of our Lord Jesus Christ.  To the life that will turn their heart and soul over to Him, He made a way.  “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me,” (John 14:6).  He is our access key.  He is the one who paved the pathway for us in righteousness and through His blood provided a space for us in His heavenly realm.  If we are His and have turned to Him, there is a place with your name on it in heaven.  A place waiting and wanting to be filled by you, but you must come through Jesus Christ only.

He made a way for us to experience His presence even while still on this old earth we call our current home.  To those who are His, they are supplied with His Spirit.  “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you,” (John 14:16-17; emphasis mine).  His Spirit leads us and guides into all truth (John 16:13).  His Spirit is our Comforter through this life we walk (John 14:18; 15:26).  He is with us today because Jesus made a way!

Friends, through it all, God made a way for us to be approach Him and to be close to Him in our daily walk and life.  Don’t neglect the chance to draw near and to know Him as your own.  He promised when we draw near to Him, He will draw near to us (James 4:8).  There are no excuses for not being where He is today.  God already made a way!

“His Footsteps, Our Pathway!”

Which pathway are we really walking down?  The times we are living in are disturbing.  Biblical prophecies are coming to pass like never before.  I have heard much preaching for us to have an awareness that we are living in the last days.  Jesus is soon to come back and escort us home, but will we be ready to follow?

There are many influences in the world today.  There are many questions being raised about this life.  There are many voices out there ready to give you their version of what the right answer is.  Many voices that want to pull you and me in this direction and that; trying to twist your arm to go along with what they believe is right for your life.

Our challenge today is to fight to stay on the true and right course that God has already preordained for each of us to walk.  A course that doesn’t always seem plain and straight; a road that may seem rocky and hard to journey on at times, leaving us to believe that we can’t make it.

Life is rough, I’ll give you that.  Nevertheless, be encouraged.  Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life,” (John 14:6, NKJV).  1 Peter 2:21 also tells us, “Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps.”

Even when the way seems dim, follow His footsteps and we will travel on the pathway that leads to life.
