The Lord Will Make A Way Somehow

Like a ship that’s tossed and driven, battered by an angry sea.
When the storms of life are raging, and their fury falls on me.
I wonder what I have done, to make this race so hard to run.
(Then I say to my soul, soul take courage)
The Lord will make a way somehow.
The Lord will make a way somehow.
Repeat

Verse (twice)
This teacher’s journey may not be easy, you did not say it would be.
Sometimes I get so lonely and disheartened, and I just don’t want
to be bothered.
Then I began to think Lord what I have done, to make this race so
hard for me to run.
Then I say to my soul, soul take courage

The Lord will make a way somehow
The Lord will make a way somehow

Sop Somehow
Alto and Tenor Somehow, Somehow, Somehow, Somehow

Ending
The Lord will make a way somehow
The Lord will make a way somehow
The Lord will make a way somehow
The Lord will make a way somehow
The Lord will make a way somehow
The Lord will make a way somehow
The Lord will make a way somehow
The Lord will make a way somehow
The Lord will make a way somehow
The Lord will make a way somehow
The Lord will make a way somehow
The Lord will make a way somehow

Who Is In Charge Here?

Who Is In Charge Here? – John 18:12-14

From: Heartlight by Phil Ware

Then the soldiers with their commander and the Jewish guards arrested Jesus. They tied Jesus and brought him to Annas. Annas was the father-in-law of Caiaphas. Caiaphas was the high priest that year. Caiaphas was the one who had told the other Jewish leaders that it would be better if one man died for all the people. (ERV)

Key Thought

Who really is in charge of what happens here? Yes, Jesus will be put to death at the request of the Jewish religious hierarchy by the Roman executioners authorized by Pontius Pilate. But who is in charge here? Jesus is bound, but they cannot restrain him. His obedience to the will of the Father is all that keeps him bound. Meanwhile, soldiers, Temple guards, leaders, priests, and others that appear to be in power are really powerless to defeat Jesus. Jesus lays down his life according to the Father’s plan and will. Jesus lays down his life to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and for the sins of the world. Jesus lays down his life or they could not crucify him. Everything is reversed. Jesus is bound, but free to obey the will of God. The leaders are free, but bound by their hatred to follow the plan of God. The events of the Cross are the great reminder that God can use the worst of situations to bring about the greatest of results to his glory.

Today’s Prayer

Almighty God, please give me the courage to live for you no matter the cost. Help me trust that your reward and your power make the sufferings and struggles of this life pale in comparison to the glory that awaits me. Thank you for your Son, who pioneered this trail to glory before me. May my life reflect his faith in you and may it not waver even in the face of threat, suffering, or pain. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

The Clash of Wills

The Clash of Wills – John 18:10-11

From: Heartlight by Phil Ware

Simon Peter had a sword. He took out the sword and struck the servant of the high priest. Peter cut off the servant’s right ear. (The servant’s name was Malchus.) Jesus said to Peter, “Put your sword back in its place! I must accept the cup {of suffering} the Father has given me.” (ERV)

Key Thought

Peter thought that the biggest battle would be between the forces of Jesus and the forces of religious and political authority. He was wrong. The biggest battle was one of the will. Jesus had the authority to call down angels to slay his enemies. He did not ask for their help, but instead offered himself up as a sacrifice to be our help. The battle was between Peter’s earthbound vision of a worldly kingdom and Jesus’ passion to glorify God by obeying his Father’s will. So often, we try to battle Satan with worldly wisdom and worldly weapons. Our biggest battle, however, isn’t with Satan, but our own will. Do we choose to obey? Do we obey when we don’t understand or it doesn’t make sense? Is our apparent victory less important than our obedience to God? Jesus chose the will of God. Will we?

Today’s Prayer

Holy and gracious God, my Abba Father, I surrender my will to you to obey and honor you as you command. I offer my body as a living sacrifice to you. Use me as you so chose and mold my heart to be like that of Jesus, in whose name I pray. Amen.
