God will make a way where there seems to be no way. He proves it over and over throughout Scripture. He will make a way for His purposes to be accomplished. He truly is a “Waymaker” as Leeland sings about in this week’s song.
Join me in 1 Samuel as we see David walking through some treacherous and emotional times where He really needed God to make a way.

This Week’s Challenge
Become familiar with the story of David and Saul by reading in 1 Samuel. Rest in the knowledge that even for King David the struggle was real. Speaking of real…don’t forget that the people in these stories were real. Read and keep on reading, and then take the time to consider how God proved Himself a “Waymaker,” a Miracle Worker, and a Light in the darkness for David. Finally, take time to declare God’s goodness. Render thank offerings to a worthy Savior Who has delivered our souls from death that we may walk in the light of life.
