God Makes a Way
You enlarged my path under me, so my feet did not slip. Psalm 18:36
When Moses led the Hebrew slaves out of Egypt, and headed for the Promised Land of Canaan, it could have been a short trip: follow the coastline of the Mediterranean Sea into Canaan. They would have immediately encountered the war-like Philistines who lived along the coast of Canaan and then fled straight back to Egypt. And there is no record of Moses telling the Hebrews this reasoning. They didn’t understand what was happening, which ultimately led to much grumbling after they tired of the Sinai Desert (Exodus 13:17).
Sometimes God’s directions and plans seem inconvenient, illogical, untimely—anything but what we might have desired or expected. For example, during the drought and resulting famine in Israel, God led Elijah to find food in the home of a poor widow who was prepared to use her last bit of flour and oil for bread, and then die. But God miraculously provided an unending supply for the woman, her son, and Elijah until the drought ended.
It was a strange way for God to provide, but it was provision! God enlarges our path, makes a way for us, even when the way seems unpredictable.
We can be certain that God will give us the strength and resources we need to live through any situation in life that He ordains. Billy Graham
