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.

Yahweh Rophe: The Lord Who Heals

Today I would like us to journey alongside with Yahweh Rophe, The Lord Who Heals. Our God, the one and true living God, is Yahweh Rophe, The Lord Who Heals. When we think of healing, our minds tend to turn directly to physical healing. However, God cannot and should not be limited. Healing can come in many different forms. Yes, God does heal our bodies, not just here on earth while we are able to see the results first hand, but also He heals when someone is freed from their suffering and pain. It does not always come about according to our preferred plan, but God undeniably is a healer; He is Yahweh Rophe, The Lord Who Heals […]

Yahweh Rophe: The Lord Who Heals

INTRODUCTION

As we continue to deepen our relationship with God, it is imperative that we truly know who He is. We know that He is our everything, Yes, but I would like to invite you to go on a little journey with me. The goal is to end this exploration with a better understanding and knowledge of who God is, through the study of some of the names of God.

It is my continued endeavor to grow in my faith in God and who He is, day by day. It is in the simple knowledge of who God is that my trust in Him will increase.

Today I would like us to journey alongside with Yahweh Rophe, The Lord Who Heals.

DEVOTION

Our God, the one and true living God, is Yahweh Rophe, The Lord Who Heals. When we think of healing, our minds tend to turn directly to physical healing. However, God cannot and should not be limited. Healing can come in many different forms. Yes, God does heal our bodies, not just here on earth while we are able to see the results first hand, but also He heals when someone is freed from their suffering and pain. It does not always come about according to our preferred plan, but God undeniably is a healer; He is Yahweh Rophe, The Lord Who Heals.

But how about this? God sent His Son, Jesus, who came to save those who are lost, which at one point was each and every one of us; but, in His coming, Jesus also followed the plan of His Heavenly Father so that we might be made whole while we are here to do the Father’s will. This wholeness is not just for our physical bodies, but also for our souls, which consists of our will, our heart, and our emotions. He came to heal our minds and our broken hearts. He came to heal us from our disappointment and every discouraging moment that we have endured. He came to heal us from those things that try to keep us bound.

Christ came to heal EVERY sickness and disease.

A sickness and disease can be anything that Satan has attempted to overpower us with that is not in the will of God. Anything that clouds our understanding of who God is supposed to be in our lives, is something that we need to be healed from. Some things are visibly easy to recognize within ourselves or others. But some things are kept hidden; however, they can never be hidden from God. He sees all and knows all and has provided a way to heal all.

There is healing for our sin-filled natures.

I have discovered this principle of life—that when I want to do what is right, I inevitably do what is wrong.

ROMANS 7:21 NLT

That is why we need to know and call on Yahweh Rophe, The Lord Who Heals. He brings restoration and is the only One who can make us whole.

Will You? God’s Way?

(Intentional Prayer)
Pray the Scriptures: Lord, thank You for Your plan of redemption. It is because of Your presence and protective covering over my life that I have hope in a future with You. Thank You for the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ. That sacrifice has given me a new life in You. For Your Word says that this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. But anyone who does what pleases God will live forever […]

(Intentional Prayer)

Pray the Scriptures – My Prayer:

Lord, thank You for Your plan of redemption. It is because of Your presence and protective covering over my life that I have hope in a future with You. Thank You for the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ. That sacrifice has given me a new life in You. For Your Word says that this world is fading away, along with everything that people crave. However, anyone who does what pleases God will live forever.

Death is no longer on my list of fears because I will be at peace with You in heavenly places. Because I do the will of God, I will live forever. 

Will you? God’s Way?

Lord, I celebrate Your goodness and I come to You to acquire a knowledge of the way You have for me. Let me know Your ways so I may understand You more fully and continue to enjoy Your favor.

In Your infinite wisdom, You, Yahweh Yireh, The Lord will Provide, have made available help, support, advice, guidance, assistance, and the information that I need to live a righteous and sanctified life. I, nor all those who take the necessary time to seek after You, have to look any further than to Your Word that You so graciously have laid out for me.

In the Waiting

Isaiah 40:31 (KJV) tells us, “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” But God promised! Have you ever thought or said that to yourself? I’m not just talking about the promises that are easily identified in God’s Word. He spoke to you. He showed you what’s to come […]

But God promised!

Have you ever thought or said that to yourself? I’m not just talking about the promises that are easily identified in God’s Word. He spoke to you. He showed you what’s to come. You know it was Him, but yet, nothing! Time is slipping away. Things appear to be escalating. Your stress level is to the max. Nothing seems to be going in the right direction. That promise is still left unfulfilled.

It doesn’t matter how long you’ve had a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, if you are a Bible Scholar or just know one passage of scripture, “Jesus wept”, waiting is the absolute hardest of tasks known to mankind. It affects every one on some level. Our human nature struggles with waiting.

Frustrating? That simply is an understatement. It looks as though you are traveling down a long winding road with no light to guide your path and no signs posted indicating which way you are actually headed. Despair unsettles you. The waiting seems purposeless. But, is it?

Isaiah 40:31 (KJV) tells us, 
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

It’s all about how we wait on the fulfillment of those promises. Are we really “waiting upon the Lord”? Are we trusting Him and taking His promises to us as truth? If we are, then God’s Word tells us that He will renew our strength. We will be able to run (get through our days), and not be weary. We will be able to walk this path called life and not faint.
