God Will Make a Way


God Will Make a Way

On Dec 7, we will be singing the song “God Will Make a Way” by Don Moen.  This is a congregational favorite.  When I first heard this song I was enamored by the opening lyric: “God will make a way where there seems to be no way.”  I immediately wanted to use it in worship.  But then I got to the verse and I was stymied by the lyric “Heaven and earth will fade”.  I didn’t understand when or why heaven would fade – until I read 2 Peter 3; then it became clear.  Our Epistle reading on 12/7 is 2 Peter 3:8-14, hence the occasion to sing this inspiring song.

 

2 Peter 3:10 “But the day of the Lord will come like a thief.  The heavens will disappear with a roar…”

 

Chorus:

God will make a way

Where there seems to be no way

He works in ways we cannot see

He will make a way for me

He will be my guide

Hold me closely to His side

With love and strength

For each new day

He will make a way

He will make a way

 

Verse:

By a roadway in the wilderness

He’ll lead me

And rivers in the desert will I see

Heaven and earth will fade

But His Word will still remain

He will do something new today

Isaiah 40:3 A voice of one calling: “In the desert prepare the way for the LORD; make straight in the wilderness a highway for our God.”

 

This song also draws from Is 43:19 “I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.”  But I think that people really like it because of it’s’ tie with Luke 1:37 “For nothing is impossible with God.”

 

Sometimes when we have exhausted all of our own resources, God is about to show us that He is not limited to our small ideas and solutions.
