When There Isn’t A Way

God makes ways out of nothing. It’s what He does best. When He created the world, He simply spoke and it was so. With one Word, God changes the atmosphere, literally, and He irrefutably changes things within our individual life circumstances. Does every way that God makes for us happen instantly? In most scenarios, that is not the case. But that is where our faith kicks in. We also can reflect and remember what He has already done in our lives and in the lives of others. He can break every chain that comes to block our way to Him.[…]

God makes ways out of nothing. It’s what He does best. When He created the world, He simply spoke and it was so. With one Word, God changes the atmosphere, literally, and He irrefutably changes things within our individual life circumstances. Does every way that God makes for us happen instantly? In most scenarios, that is not the case. But that is where our faith kicks in. We also can reflect and remember what He has already done in our lives and in the lives of others.

For His desired will to be revealed, we must continue to wait on Him and walk through the process, and sometimes endure the breaking that must occur.

No matter what we currently see or what the end result gives the impression to be, God can make a way when there visibly isn’t one. He can break every chain that comes to block our way to Him.

Genesis 1:3 (NLT) says,
Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.

Genesis 1:6-7 (NLT) says,
6 Then God said, “Let there be a space between the waters, to separate the waters of the heavens from the waters of the earth.” 7 And that is what happened. God made this space to separate the waters of the earth from the waters of the heavens.

Genesis 1:9 (NLT) says,
Then God said, “Let the waters beneath the sky flow together into one place, so dry ground may appear.” And that is what happened.

Genesis 1:11 (NLT) says,
Then God said, “Let the land sprout with vegetation—every sort of seed-bearing plant, and trees that grow seed-bearing fruit. These seeds will then produce the kinds of plants and trees from which they came.” And that is what happened.

Genesis 1:14-15 (NLT) says,
14 Then God said, “Let lights appear in the sky to separate the day from the night. Let them be signs to mark the seasons, days, and years. 15 Let these lights in the sky shine down on the earth.” And that is what happened.

Genesis 1:20-21 (NLT) says,
20 Then God said, “Let the waters swarm with fish and other life. Let the skies be filled with birds of every kind.” 21 So God created great sea creatures and every living thing that scurries and swarms in the water, and every sort of bird—each producing offspring of the same kind. And God saw that it was good.

Genesis 1:24 (NLT) says,
Then God said, “Let the earth produce every sort of animal, each producing offspring of the same kind—livestock, small animals that scurry along the ground, and wild animals.” And that is what happened.

And the very best, He saved for last.

Genesis 1:26-27 (NLT) says,
26 Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.” 27 So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.

God SAID IT and everything was so, based on His Word and authority over all creation.

Chosen to Bear Fruit

John 15:16 The Message Bible says,
“You didn’t choose me, remember; I chose you, and put you in the world to bear fruit, fruit that won’t spoil. As fruit bearers, whatever you ask the Father in relation to me, he gives you.”

Jesus, in wanting to encourage His disciples, expressed how He chose them. He appointed them to go and produce lasting fruit. They were to be His disciples, spreading the gospel to all who would hear; and in doing so, the Father would give them whatever they asked for, in Jesus name. They were to pray unto the Father using the name of Jesus.

The Life Application Study Bible says, “Jesus made the first choice—to love and to die for us, to invite us to live with him forever. We make the next choice—to accept or reject his offer. Without his choice, we would have no choice to make.”

We were chosen, not because of anything that we did, but because Jesus loved us. God sent His beloved son, who chose to sacrifice His life for our life, so that we, too, could be appointed to go and produce lasting fruit. We have the privilege of praying to God in the name of Jesus and receiving whatever we ask in the will of God.

Lord, let Your will be done!

Because of Jesus’ choice, we were given a choice to accept this gift of salvation and to share it with others.

As I lay here tonight, trying my best to fall asleep on the eve of yet another Mother’s Day, my mind and heart turns to another view of being chosen.

For those mother’s out there who may stumble across this expression of faith, no matter the circumstances that surround how you or I became a parent, I believe and trust that God chose us and paired us with the specific children that we were meant to disciple and produce lasting fruit, within our assignment of motherhood. That child that sometimes gives us such a hard time or has turned their back on God and the teachings that we placed within them, God knew that the special anointing He has placed over our individual lives would be the key to our sons and daughters choosing Him as the Lord of their lives.
