God Will Make a Way
By Rick Warren
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV)
You may be facing a dead end right now—financially, emotionally, or relationally. But if you trust God and keep on moving forward in faith, even when you don’t see a way, he will make a way.
God’s plan will become more understandable as you head down the path he sets before you, but understanding is not a requirement for you to start down the path.
One day you will stand in the full light of eternity and view the big picture. You’ll see God’s purpose behind the path he specifically chose for you.
In the meantime, do what Proverbs 3:5-6 says: “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight” (NIV).
Be patient. God knows what he’s doing. He knows what is best for you. And you can trust him because he’s good.
You may not be able to see the end result, but God can. All those problems, heartaches, difficulties, and delays—all the things that make you ask “why”—will one day be clear in the light of God’s love.
But for now, you’re learning to trust God. So go ahead and keep heading down that path he’s laid out for you.
