Podcast #199: “I Will Find a Way” by Jason Gray

Discovering God's Way to Our Heart in Isaiah 43

What if Jesus had come to earth in another way? He is God after all. He didn’t HAVE to plan to come as a baby. Have you ever considered why? Jason Gray’s song grapples with this idea in his song “I Will Find a Way” based on a short story, “An Advent Monologue,” by Walter Wangerin Jr.

Join me on a journey to Isaiah 43 where we hear the loving voice of our Father.

On this episode I discuss:

  • Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – this week’s Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include:
    • Context
    • Reading aloud
  • “Ragman: And Other Cries of Faith” by Walter Wangerin, Jr.
  • A review of the song and the story it’s based on
  • God’s “tone of voice” and how we interpret it
  • The phrase in the song that leads us to Isaiah 43
  • All the ways God comforts us with his love in Isaiah 43
  • How we in turn burden and weary Him – Isaiah 43:22-24
  • The thieves, collectors, and looters displayed in the story, song, and Scripture – 2 Peter 2:17-19
  • How God handles our transgressions – Isaiah 43:25
  • John’s description of Emmanuel…God with us – John 1:9-14

This Week’s Challenge

Read Isaiah 43. If you’re up for it, read Isaiah 42-45 for even greater context. Read it out loud picturing the voice of a Father who is seeking to make a way. To consider a vivid description of the destructive nature of false teachers, head over to 2 Peter 2. Why do we sit in bondage to this when we have the true light of the world who came for us?
