IT HAS A WAY OUT
In any given challenge, there's a way out. No matter how adverse or overwhelming a situation looks, don't despair, instead remember these three things: God will never let you down; He'll never let you be pushed past your limit; He'll always be there to help you come through it. This is because, God is the One that orchestrates and governs your Christian walk and experience.
And you know what? Your ways and experiences are stunningly arranged and predetermined in Christ such that the supernatural coordinates the elements of every situation in your life to produce a purposeful effect, in accordance with God's will for you.
Reference: 1 Corinthians 10:13 J.B. Phillips New Testament (PHILLIPS) 'No temptation has come your way that is too hard for flesh and blood to bear. But God can be trusted not to allow you to suffer any temptation beyond your powers of endurance. He will see to it that every temptation has a way out, so that it will never be impossible for you to bear it.'
There is always a victorious way God has made for us when we meet challenges. Therefore, be of good cheer because there are no challenges without divine solutions, or a way out in victory. Put in another way, 'a way out' is already established or decided in advance, even in your favour, as you remain strong in the Lord. This is why there's no room for disadvantage or discouragement when you face adversity, rather always be prepared with a grateful heart, to thank God in everything, especially for making a way out of the challenges.
When the Israelites were in the wilderness and had a challenge, they thought their end had come because, nothing, humanly analysed, indicated there was a way out for them. However the Lord instructed them to move forward and expect the way out.
We can get the whole picture or story, by reading Exodus 14:10-16 (NKJV):
'And when Pharaoh drew near, the children of Israel lifted their eyes, and behold, the Egyptians marched after them. So they were very afraid, and the children of Israel cried out to the Lord. Then they said to Moses, "Because there were no graves in Egypt, have you taken us away to die in the wilderness? Why have you so dealt with us, to bring us up out of Egypt? Is this not the word that we told you in Egypt, saying, 'Let us alone that we may serve the Egyptians'? For it would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than that we should die in the wilderness."
And Moses said to the people, "Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.
And the Lord said to Moses, "Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward. But lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it. And the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea."'
Did you notice that what matters is to listen to God to show you the way out of every challenge? How do you listen to God in times like that? Philippians 4:6-7 (NKJV) tells us, 'Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.'
When you refuse to be anxious about it, but pay attention to God in every situation, your ears will surely hear a word behind you, saying, "This is the way, walk in it..." (see Isaiah 30:21 AMP).
Scripture Reading: Psalm 71:2; Daniel 3:17; Psalm 141:9-10; Romans 8:28; 2 Peter 2:9.
Exuberant Declaration: God is faithful, who can never allow me to be tried beyond what I am able to bear, but gives me the power to come out of any trial as gold. On every count, I am victorious over every challenge and adversity and I'm grateful that all things work together for my good, according to God's purpose for my life. Hallelujah!
