Have you ever had an ear worm, one of those songs you just can’t get out of your head? This happens to me quite a bit, especially after a church service. One song that keeps coming back again and again is Waymaker. The song I know was written by Sinach, but it has been recorded by many Christian artists. It talks about God being with us, even when we don’t see or feel what he is doing. It also calls him Miracle Worker, Promise Keeper and Light in the Darkness.
Some of you may be more acquainted with a hymn by Don Moen, that says, “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.”
I don’t know about you, but waymaker wasn’t part of my vocabulary before I learned this song. The dictionary says it means, “one who makes a way, a precursor.” There are lots of examples of waymaking in the Bible, but the greatest one to me is Jesus making a way to have our sins forgiven so that we can go to heaven. He makes a way for us to our Father God.
2 Samuel 22:31 states, “ God’s way is perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection.” Sometimes things in our lives seem pretty dire and it’s hard for us to figure out how things will ever get better. The wonderful thing is, we don’t have to figure it out ourselves. We have to patiently petition God and trust him. He will make a way for us.
