GOD MAKES A WAY OUT OF NO WAY
A serious walk with God can be full of amazing supernatural encounters. Through His Word that cannot fail, we are sure of experiencing timely victory, miraculous supplies and a sudden change or transformation of difficult situations. Let us look at few Biblical stories of how God made a way out of nowhere so we can also position ourselves to experience His all sufficient grace, His enabling power and His sovereign remedy in our lives.
Reference: Isaiah 48:21 New International Version (NIV) 'They did not thirst when he led them through the deserts; he made water flow for them from the rock; he split the rock and water gushed out.'
There are hardly any waters in the desert but God created a way for thousands to have access to water in the desert from a rock and not even one person died of thirst. This means that no matter what situation, challenge or difficulty you encounter, God has a way of creating solution out of where there's absolutely no solution in sight. When human understanding couldn't figure out how the Israelites could cross the sea, within a split second, God parted the red sea into two walls of water to make a highway for them and they crossed over to the other end in safety. Have you ever been in such situation? Have you realised that God is your way out of no way. Isaiah 12:2 (NIV) reads, 'Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The LORD, the LORD himself, is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation.'
There is no natural explanation as to how a temporary path across the Red Sea could have been devised. Yet it happened by the intelligence of the divine. Isaiah 43:16-19 (NIV) reads, 'Thus says the Lord', 'Who makes a way through the sea And a path through the mighty waters, Who brings forth the chariot and the horse, The army and the mighty man (They will lie down together and not rise again; They have been quenched and extinguished like a wick): Do not call to mind the former things, Or ponder things of the past. "Behold, I will do something new, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness, Rivers in the desert."'
There is absolutely nothing too hard for God. When Abraham found himself in a difficult situation where He had to obey or disobey God, he still chose to obey God. He took Isaac, his only son up to the mountain to sacrifice him before God. Yet, just at the last-gasp timing, God provided a solution for Abraham out of nowhere (see Genesis 22:9-14). Sarah was also known as a barren woman by many but God declared her otherwise. Is anything too hard for the LORD? At the appointed time I will return to you about this time next year, and Sarah shall have a son' (see Genesis 18:14). God told her that she would bear a son regardless of her age and condition and it came to pass because there is nothing too hard for Him.
Beloved, with God all things are possible and in Mark 9:23 (NIV) Jesus said, 'Everything is possible for one who believes.' Don't ever admit that any unfavourable situation is impossible for God to change. In Matthew 19:26 (NLT), Jesus looked at the disciples intently and said, "Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible." Therefore, have faith in God because your faith is the victory that overcomes any situation and moves you from the condition of impossibility into the realm of possibilities.

Exuberant Declaration: My heart is full of thanks because God is my waymaker; nothing is too hard for God and there's no circumstance that can limit Him. Hence, my life is a well-watered garden that never runs dry because divine supply is timely allocated to me and positioned in all my ways both now and forever, in Jesus' Name, Amen!
