I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase, “We’ll cross that bridge when we get there.” It often proves that things work out, or are more manageable than we thought. Of course, sometimes the bridge is way steeper to cross than we had hoped. The best news is that there is a bridge and this means there is a way across. There is a way to the other side.
Jesus is that bridge that we cross. He has provided forgiveness of sins because of the cross and his resurrection. When we repent and receive his forgiveness, we have officially crossed that bridge, into the family of God and into a relationship with God.
He continues to be the “bridge” in our life every day. We can rest knowing that God will always provide a bridge in every circumstance. He goes before us and prepares the way because he already knows the beginning to the end and everything in between. He makes a way, by parting the sea to walk on dry land, as he did when Moses and the Israelites crossed over the Red Sea. [Exodus 14] Surely, if he can accomplish such a great miracle for them, he will make a way, leading us and provide for us as well. The bridge has not been washed out or fallen down. Whether it be by bridge, dry land, divine connections, or even inspiring us with an idea, he has already lit up the bridge. You will cross that bridge when you get there.
“Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long.”
Psalm 25:4-5 — English Standard Version (ESV)
