“3 … make straight and smooth in the desert a highway for our God! 4 Every valley shall be lifted and filled up, and every mountain and hill shall be made low; and the crooked and uneven shall be made straight and level, and the rough places a plain.” Isaiah 40:3b-4 AMP
Picture a construction site: bulldozers, dump trucks, frontend loaders, construction crews. The engineer has the plan that makes sense of it all. The plan can take an area that seems impassable and rugged, transforming it. It transforms an area full of obstacles into a main artery of activity. God is our engineer that holds the vision and master plan. When he clears the path: filling our valleys, making our mountains straight and level, and smoothing out our rough places — we don’t always understand that it is a period of construction.
Matthew 17:20, 1 Corinthians 13:2
