A PATHWAY THROUGH
Psalm 77:19 NLT
“Your road led through the sea, Your pathway through the mighty waters – a pathway no one knew was there”
His Road, His Way – goes through and not around.
It is in going through that faith is built and hearts are tried and tested, calls are proved and secured, and God becomes ALL to us.
His Pathway – His Way – goes THROUGH the mighty waters. This is not a trickling brook or a stagnant pond, this is a mighty sea. Powerful and stronger than man’s strength to overcome.
The waves are huge, the currents strong, the riptides dangerous – this is the mighty sea.
Yet He does not lead us around but through!
This is a Confident God a Sure God – for all along HE KNEW what we did not.
A pathway THROUGH – safe passage for those He loves.
Safe passage through – but it requires Trust and Risk and ‘not my will but Yours’.
It’s to say okay, here we go, I don’t see how – I don’t see a way – I just see death and drowning – no way can I get across and through this sea, these mighty waters.
Lord, I asked for the River – how did I get this mighty sea?
He says – The way OUT is the way THROUGH.
When you pass through the waters, they will not overtake you.
It is the baptism into death – death of confidence and reliance on self, of our independent ways and soulish thinking – trying to figure it all out.
Taking the Way of Faith means risk!
Standing at the shore with the seas great vastness and saying – okay here I am – I don’t see a way – but I choose to trust YOU.
All along He had the pathway – we just could not see it – a hidden mystery – a hidden way – THROUGH!
These are shown to those who are willing to risk, trust and declare –
Lead on, Oh King Eternal
Holy and True One
I trust in You – on You
I am Yours and I trust You
To lead me through for
On the other side are promises untold that can never be mine without
Choices – land of mediocrity on one side
land of adventure with Him on the other which requires radical risk-taking.
What He wants to produce is a people who know their God and when storms hit our individual lives, our family, our church, our city, our nation – we are calm in the storm and can press in to see the way THROUGH.
For they see what HE sees with the eyes of their hearts – locked in faith – with Him and in Him.
