When There Seems to Be No Way

This post was written for the weekly Five Minute Friday blog linkup. Each week, writers respond to a one-word prompt by writing for five minutes, then share their unedited writing with each other. Click here to join the fun!

This week’s prompt: Way.

The Israelites are trapped in slavery, and Pharaoh refuses to let them go. God sends 10 plagues and then splits open the sea to lead His people to freedom.

Mankind is dead in sin and rebellion, destined to be separated from God forever. God sends His only Son to redeem us and restore our relationship.

God makes a way when there seems to be no way.

This week, some dear friends of mine are in a very difficult situation. They are grieving a loss, as am I, and we aren’t sure what the future holds for a beloved ministry. But God has a plan. He will not abandon His children. He will provide for them. The situation might look hopeless to some, but we can’t give up and let the devil triumph over us.

Jesus has won the victory, and we won’t be discouraged or deterred when men fail us. We will keep hoping, keep praying, keep trusting that He is sovereign and that He will continue to do His work no matter what.

What circumstances in your life make you feel like there is no way out? This is not the end of the story. God will make a way for Him to be glorified even through the darkest of situations. Don’t give up hope.

I’ve seen You move, You move the mountains

And I believe I’ll see You do it again

You made a way where there was no way

And I believe I’ll see You do it again
