One of my favorite contemporary songs is Way Maker. It reminds me of the role that God plays in all our lives. It also reminds me that there are things that I can’t do and that I must depend on Him for. We all like to think that we have everything under control, but we don’t. God is the Way Maker!
The chorus of this song reminds us of who God is and what he does for us:
Way maker, miracle worker
Promise keeper, light in the darkness
My God, that is who You are.
One of the Scripture verses that is the reference for this song is Isaiah 43:16-21
16 This is what the Lord says—
he who made a way through the sea,
a path through the mighty waters,
17 who drew out the chariots and horses,
the army and reinforcements together,
and they lay there, never to rise again,
extinguished, snuffed out like a wick:
18 “Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
19 See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.
20 The wild animals honor me,
the jackals and the owls,
because I provide water in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland,
to give drink to my people, my chosen,
21 the people I formed for myself
that they may proclaim my praise.
This reminds me that God wants to be involved in every area of my life. He will make a way even when we don’t understand it. God is moving in our midst and healing every heart. It also reminds us that God is working even when we don’t see it.
I am excited about what He is going to do at Eastern Hills. I see God moving in many areas. I see people getting back involved, and I see people stepping up and getting involved in areas where they were not involved before. Last week we had our food distribution and had a great turn out. There were over 30 people involved and many were folks that had not been involved in our food distribution before.
I hope that you will be involved in our Bible Study and Worship in the coming weeks.
