Do you even feel like there is no way?
• No way will I ever get through this.
• There is no way I will ever get out of this financial dilemma.
• No way to get out of all this debt.
• No way can I forgive.
• No way will I be healed.
• No way can I do something or other.
• No way can I live without this or that or someone.
• No way can I do what I have dreamed.
Can you think of other examples of No Way in your life?
I want you to put them on the cross. There is always a way, there is always a ram in the bush that God will provide for you to have a way out of whatever situation.
God didn’t do to you anything that is hurting you, do not blame God. It clearly says in the word that The devil comes to kill, steal and destroy. God restores what the enemy intends for your harm.
Only you can have the outlook and perseverance to move forward, will you climb, run, carry, and do what you need to do to let God show you the way.
Anything that is brought to God, He can heal and make a way for you.
Luke 5:18-20 (New International Version)
18Some men came carrying a paralytic on a mat and tried to take him into the house to lay him before Jesus. 19When they could not find a way to do this because of the crowd, they went up on the roof and lowered him on his mat through the tiles into the middle of the crowd, right in front of Jesus. 20When Jesus saw their faith, he said, “Friend, your sins are forgiven.”
They had to be determined to have the paralytic man be healed by Jesus. I’m sure they had to carry him for some time to take him to where Jesus was in the crowd and then they had to climb with the man up to the roof, find a way to tie him up and lower him right in front of Jesus. That takes thought, determination, strength and a faith that no matter the obstacle Jesus can do all things. Otherwise why bother and not give up and go home. Having people around you that support you in your faith, struggles, and fight will help you overcome when you feel you are paralytic.
16 I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them. 17 But those who trust in idols, who say to images, ‘You are our gods,’ will be turned back in utter shame
God will lead you even if you are blind to the path that you should go. He will enlighten you if you allow him to do so. He will guide you if you get rid of the No way attitude and get a God can make a way out of no way attitude.
There are many images that can become your Gods. Whether it’s work, wealth, fear, body image, un-forgiveness, ideals of people to name a few. If we put more trust in these images and give them more value and weight than our God we will be put to shame. That is when we must realize that it’s not God’s fault but our own for not giving God the Glory and opportunity to show us the way out of a situation in our lives, even if it’s been a generational situation.
Whenever you feel like you have No Way, keep your head up and remember that the Lord you serve is THE WAY….. THE ONLY WAY.
John 14:6 (New International Version)
6Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
