WAY-MAKER

"...tell the children of Israel to go forward" (Exodus 14:15)

 

Jesus said "I am the way". The early disciples were called people "of the Way" (Acts 9:2 NKJV). After Bartimaeus received his sight he followed Jesus "in the way" (Mark 10:52). Where there is no way Jesus makes a way. First, He makes a way over. The enemy specializes in blockage. In one place Paul said, "Satan hindered us". In another, "A great door is opened before us, but there are many adversaries". It may be a small roadblock in the pathway, other times a huge mountain. We read where "the Spirit of the Lord caught Philip away, so the eunuch saw him no more..." (Acts 8:39) That's one way to overcome, do a fly-over. They that wait upon the Lord shall "mount up with wings as eagles". We "mount" over mountains, mount the insurmountable. "By my God I can leap over a wall" (Psalm 18:29). With a strong anointing you can hurdle any problem.

 

Second, He makes a way around. I don't think we should skirt issues but some mountains are better conquered by flowing with the natural terrain. Use the valleys to your advantage. Some confrontations are unnecessary, just step to the left or right. Why mess with a bulldog? Joseph fled from Potiphar's wife. Fleeing around the side of the house was courage, not cowardice. Moses led the Hebrews around the long route to Canaan. Don't blame every detour on the devil. There are lessons to learn and lots of scenery on the byway that would be missed by speeding down an interstate four lane. Wise people know that the way over is often around.

 

Third, He makes a way through. The Red Sea screamed impassability and impossibility. The Hebrews were cornered, jagged mountains to their left and right, Egyptian chariots wheeling in behind, and the un-crossable sea before them. What to do? Our text demands "go forward". Some acts of faith appear suicidal at first, Peter stepping out of the boat in a sea storm, Joshua and the priests walking straight into the floodwaters of Jordan, etc. Most often it is not until we take a step toward the impossibility that omnipotence shows up. He made a way through - "He turned the sea into dry and; they went through the flood on foot..." (Psalm 66:6) To get to it, go through it. That means staying in the ring, taking the punches, but holding out longer than the opponent. The anointing flies us over like we're in a jet, wisdom ushers us around dodging the eye of the storm, but faith takes us right through the hurricane without a fear. Following Jesus is like getting in the air vacuum right behind a big semi truck. Winning becomes a breeze.
