No matter what you are facing, there is a way out! Your troubles could be financial, legal, or relational. God seems to specialize in providing ways out of situations that appear impossible to us. Sometimes God places us in circumstances where we cannot figure out how to get out of them. We can try and rationalize finding a way out of where we are at, or we can begin to trust that God does have a plan.
No matter what you are facing it is not impossible or too big for God. We see things only from a human perspective, but God is not limited to our perspective. God sees the bigger picture and never works “inside the box” like we do. We are limited as humans and need the help of the Holy Spirit to make a way for us.
“For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in dry wasteland.” (Isaiah 43:19, NLT)
There are times that God wants to do something new in our lives, and if we resist God’s ways we can forfeit what God is trying to do. As the above scripture states, God can create a pathway in the wilderness and rivers in the dry wasteland; but our part is to allow God to do what only He can do. We are not to try and figure out how to make a way out of impossible situations. The wilderness can be a place of wandering, where we have no direction and we are aimlessly trying to find our way out.
I have a family member who has literally lost everything, no car, no job, no money and is in a lot of financial debt. It looks like there is no way out of this situation. I am sure the enemy is telling my family member that following God’s ways will never work, and that you just need to do whatever you need to do to get money. BUT GOD! He is the God that can make a way in the wilderness. I honestly do not have the answers to how one can get a job with no car or how to pay off debt with no money coming in, but I know that we can “trust in the Lord with all our hearts and lean not on our own understanding; and in all our ways submit to Him, and He will make our paths straight” (Proverbs 3:5-6). The key to this scripture I believe is to trust the Lord with everything that we have even if it looks like there is no way and submit our lives to Him, then He will make our paths straight before us. It all starts with trusting God, not figuring it all out first.
We have all been in situations that seem literally impossible to find a way out. No matter what predicament that you are facing, God does have the solution. TRUST GOD out of your wilderness.
