We have all at one point been set in the midst of the valley but it is our actions during this time that determines how long we stay in it.
Our God is love and His hand is with us even in circumstances that look unfavorable with our physical eye.
I refer to these as dead situations, that make our enemies rejoice thinking we have been defeated. Little does the enemy know that when you walk out of the valley, you will not be the same because you will come out with great power and authority.
Jesus Christ was tempted in the wilderness by the devil but He came back in the power of the Spirit Ready to begin His Ministry (Matthew 4:1).
Peter and John faced persecution but just after their release they met with their friends and prayed to God, the place was shaken where they were assembled together and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and spoke the word of Gold with boldness (Acts 4:31).
After Paul and those that were on the ship had struggled with the tempestuous head wind, they discovered they were on Malta Island where Paul gathered a bundle of sticks and laid them on the fire.
A viper came out because of the heat and fasted on his hand, but he shook it into the fire.
Imagine that they were just coming from the storm and the enemy still wanted to take his life using this poisonous snake.
After all this we see Paul healing Publius’s father who was sick with a fever. When this was done, all the people who had diseases also came were healed and he was honored in many ways (Acts 28). From the tempest in the water, being bitten by a snake, and now we see him praying for many to be healed and they were indeed all heeled.
What I am saying is that valleys will be there, but if you stand in the promises of God, you will come out with the fire of God that will give you power and authority to defeat the situations that have troubled you.
The problem is that we turn to stay in the valley for a long time than we should have because of our own disobedience. David said “Though I walk in the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil…” (Psalms 23:4). Take note that he said though I walk through, meaning that you do not have to stay in the valley, but pass through to your destination.
Remember to use these times of the valley to seek God, and let Him reveal himself to us because it is in these times of the valley that God reveals himself to His children as our spirit is broken therefore able to listen to the voice of God as we seek Him with all our hearts.
Our God is not only the God of the mountains but also the valleys.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
