Day Seven | January 14th


Jesus said to him, “I AM the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me

John 14:6


Have you ever been lost? Maybe someone gave you directions that were unclear. Or perhaps Google’s directions were just plain wrong. Depending upon the circumstances, being lost can be inconvenient, frustrating, or even frightening.

Jesus is the Way! Jesus made this statement in a conversation He was having with His disciples. He had just told them that He was going to prepare a place for them and that they knew the way to that place. Thomas, one of His followers, was not so sure. “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?”

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me (John 14:6).

Many people tense up over Jesus saying He is the only Way. “I will do my thing, and you can do your thing. Who are you to tell me this is the only way?” Many are uncomfortable with absolutes and think it’s narrow to agree with these words of Jesus. However, Jesus is clear on this point. No one can come to God except through Him.

Not only is He the Way, but He is also the Way-Maker. When we don’t know which way to go, He is the Way. He also makes a way where there does not seem to be a way. If you are thinking, “There is no way my family will be restored,” or “There is no way my prodigal child will ever return.” Jesus can make a way for that to happen. If you are thinking, “There is no way in this economy that I will ever get back on my feet.” Jesus can make a way for that too! At Oaks Church, we like to say, “Jesus is here! Anything is possible!” Like the song says, “Even when I don't see it, You're working; Even when I don't feel it, You're working; You never stop, You never stop working” (Way Maker by Leeland).


What hopeless situation are you facing in which you need Jesus to make a way for you? Write out the obstacle and the solution you’re praying for. If there is a mountain in front of you, He can move mountains. If there is a sea, He can split the sea. He can close the mouth of lions, and He can open prison doors. Let’s bring those areas to Jesus today. Ask Him to make a way where seems to be no way, and ask Him to give you His peace while He’s at work.
