A Pathway Through
A Pathway Through
“Your road led through the sea, Your pathway through the mighty waters- a pathway no one knew was there” NLT
“Your steps formed a highway through the seas with footprints on a pathway no one even knew was there” TPTHis Road – His Way – goes THROUGH and not around!
It is in the going through that faith is built and hearts are tried and tested – calls are proven and secured, and GOD BECOMES ALL to us and not Someone we just call upon occasionally or in times of need.
His Pathway – His Way – goes THROUGH the mighty waters.
This is not a trickling brook or stagnant pond – this is a mighty sea – powerful and stronger than a man’s strength to overcome. Huge waves, strong currents, dangerous riptides – a 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 – but it takes trust and risk and ‘not my will but Yours’.
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??
The way OUT is the way THROUGH!
When you pass THROUGH the waters they will not overtake you.
It’s the baptism into death -death of our confidence and reliance on SELF –
and our own independent ways and thinking – trying to figure it all out.
Taking the Way of Faith – Risk!
Standing at the shore with the seas – the 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 – hidden mystery – we enter deeper now into Trust and say –
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
GOING THROUGHChoices – the land of mediocrity on one side
The land of adventure with Him on the other side
This will require radical risk taking!What He wants to produce is a people who KNOW their GOD
when the storms hit a person, people, family, city, nation –
they 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!
