When we go through situations, we tend to look down, but God wants us to look up.
If we reflect, we will see areas in our lives that God has made a way when things looked impossible.
Seas, mighty waters, wilderness and deserts represent situations and challenges that we all go through at one point or another in life., whether it is in in business, school, family, future, career, marriage etc.
Challenges are not from God. They are setbacks planted by the enemy across our pathway to stop us in our journey of life, but God always makes a way for us.

God is making a way and like Joseph you will be triumphant in Jesus name. Amen!
