When The Way Seems Hard
Psalm 25:4, 5

ILLUSTRATION: The following story appeared in the Daily Bread, March 9, 1999.
"Rebecca was at her lowest as she drove her aging car to the day-care center to pick up her daughter. Her boss was making life difficult again. The landlord was raising the rent. And as a single mom, she felt all alone. "I'm trying my best," she told God. "Please help me."
Just then these words by Don Moen came on the radio in a song:
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.
"Please do that for me, God," Rebecca pleaded. "I can't go any further."
God made a way for Rebecca, too. A better job she had applied for months earlier suddenly opened up. The increase in her income would cover the rent. Then a family in her church made a newer car available to her.
Listen, if life seems to be closing in on you, don't despair! Trust God. He has promised to make a way. --DCE HOLWICK'S ILLUSTRATION COLLECTION Number: 18310 SOURCE: Our Daily Bread, March 9, 1999 TITLE: God Will Make A Way

A. Think of Israel
1. How many times did Israel doubt God? How
many times did they complain and accuse Him of not caring? And yet, God proved Himself faithful every single time.
a. If the need was food, He provided food
b. If the need was water, He pr ...
