Who He Is

Way Maker

I’ve had this song on my heart this year, and I really believe it was written for such a time as this to remind us of who God is.

The devil is trying is best to make us forget and believe all that God isn’t. In all the fear and uncertainty surrounding us, we must be sure of this one thing—God is Good—and He is a way maker, miracle worker, promise keeper, and light in the darkness (hope) to this hurting world.

I want to break down this chorus phrase by phrase and back up these titles with biblical truth. Please feel free to listen to Way Maker while you read.

You are…

Way Maker

“Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” (Isaiah 43:19)

“…God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.” (1 Corinthians 10:13)

“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
(John 14:6)

“Thus says the Lord, who makes a way in the sea, a path in the mighty waters.” (Isaiah 43:16)

Miracle Worker

“You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.” (Psalm 77:14)

“Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”’ (Mark 10:27)

“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” (Mark 11:24)

“The disciples saw Jesus do many other miraculous signs in addition to the ones recorded in this book.” (John 20:30)

Promise Keeper

“Not one of the good promises which the Lord had made to the house of Israel failed; all came to pass.” (Joshua 21:45)

“For as many as are the promises of God, in Him they are yes; therefore also through Him is our Amen to the glory of God through us.” (2 Corinthians 1:20)

“…Who by faith conquered kingdoms, performed acts of righteousness, obtained promises, shut the mouths of lions…” (Hebrews 11:33)

“The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9)

Light in the Darkness

“This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all.” (1 John 1:5)

“His radiance is like the sunlight;
He has rays flashing from His hand,
And there is the hiding of His power.”
(Habakkuk 3:4)

“From the brightness before Him
Coals of fire were kindled.”
(2 Samuel 22:13)

“And his appearance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow.” (Matthew 28:3)

“Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (John 8:12)

“For it is you who light my lamp; the Lord my God lightens my darkness.”
(Psalm 18:28)

My God, that is who you are…

    A beautiful perspective Hope! I know you are right and speak Truth from God here!
    This morning the first commentary after waking and praying is what I’m going to share here verbatim as I believe it applies profoundly! It was in response to this beautiful posting!

    “I look back over my life and I see your hand, your eternal grace, your love. I do not understand why you brought me to this point in my life. I have been through so much and yet today I feel so blessed by so many people you have put in my life. Your care for me is evident. I thank you today dear God. I give you praise for what you have done in my life. I pray for your wisdom to guide me. Show me how I can best serve you.”

    “Then David the king went in and sat before the LORD, and he said, “Who am I, O Lord GOD, and what is my house, that You have brought me this far?” – 2 Samuel 7:18 (NASB)

    Very good! I’ve thought the same thing especially when as I approached years in age that one would think the difficult “got a lot to learn” was behind me and was mature and older and wiser, yet that’s when the worst difficulties and attacks upon my life came at me! A time when things got so bad that even with a severe health injury that occurred in a work environment set like a trap by a most devious sinister man with some earthly power; and it got even worse when I had to fire the lawyer and represent myself!

    I only made it through all of that because of Jesus Christ, that is the true take away not that I won my own case and went onto a stable life again even improving all of my health damage to practically being free of it, but still damaged and having suffered severely, which beat me up.

    Look at it this way my Christian friend, my Dad said many times, “I’m only here because God still needs me here, but, when He wants me up there with Him I will not be here another second.” Former President Anwar Sadat of Egypt I had noticed in video and written text said basically the same thing to his wife when she asked him why he won’t listen to his security experts about wearing body armor! I wondered if Anwar was tuned into Jesus but being in the Muslim world and having grown up as one on the Nile River he was being sensible and diplomatic and not telling anyone. When he was assassinated moments after He was looking up into the sky after military jets had flown overhead during a ceremony and in that moment he was murdered!

    I think God is at work of course in many things we sometimes take for granted and here I am talking about a man I think I liked a lot who was a supposed Muslim but spoke like my own father. It is an established fact that in many predominately Muslim nations there are those who walk around and act as Muslims but are hiding their desire to be and belief in Christianity, but cannot be open for the obvious reprisal concern or extreme danger to themselves and family.

    Our true Armor comes from our Lord Jesus Christ who is with us and if He wants us to wear additional protection because it’s necessary to carry out the Father’s will then so be it; otherwise we can rest assured that our faith in our Savior is what we always need and is absolutely necessary. Amen.

    Thank you for this perspective Hope!

    God bless you and yours.

    1. Thank you for sharing Lawrence! I’m glad that God has turned your ashes (work injury and case) into a testimony of His goodness. The devil can only knock us down in this short amount of time and his power is mocked when we stand back up and continue pursuing God and fulfilling our destinies with even more passionate zeal. God bless!

      1. Awesomely said Hope!!! Exactly and he is a weak snail of a creature way below us in our fallen state. Because God though Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior is our support and anchor if we abide in Him there is no way the Devil has the slightest dominion over us, get behind me Satan!

        And I found through my trials that he wishes like the dickens we will feel defeated before we start, can’t climb that mountain ahead, or along the way get so weak and give up hope. And as you say; my resolve turned into a raging powerhouse of I will fight tooth, nail and to my last breath by means of which he loses; end of story!

        Thank you for this heartfelt work that opened a channel of opportunity to express God’s Glory and Power, that is there for the asking, if people will just accept He is the Lord thy God, and we just need to Trust Him solely, “Let God and Let God!”
        God bless you Hope!
