God Makes a Way
God does not change. God is the same today as He was yesterday; He is the same today as He was one million years ago; and He is the same today as He was into eternity past. When Jesus arrived on the scene in the New Testament and lived and dwelled among us, He did not come down to our world to provide a different identity of God; He was fully and entirely, Himself, God. And while there can be moments where we question what God is/was doing--whether in the Bible or in our own lives--it does not mean God’s character has changed at all. While there may be certain things we do not understand about God, that does not mean God has changed in the way He acts or in who He is.
One thing that God makes clear through the Bible is that He is a way maker. He provides a way for us that would otherwise be impossible. In the Book of Isaiah, we see this clearly through God’s word:
“Do not remember the former things,
Nor the things of old.
Behold, I will do a new thing,
Now it shall spring forth;
Shall you not know it?
I will even make a road in the wilderness
And rivers in the desert.” (Isaiah 43:18-19)
I think this passage speaks on the nature of God in a profound way, and illustrates His ability of creating a solution when there seems to be none. These two verses provide an interesting perspective on what God’s way looks like in a visual sense, but also in a metaphorical one.
