Stuck in A Valley?

Life is good on the mountaintops of celebration. But no matter how much we’d like to spend our lives up there, we need to walk through the valleys of challenges, too. Life is tough in the valleys. Still, there are valuable lessons we can learn in the valleys that we could never learn if we stayed on the mountaintops. One thing is certain; the valley of fear, detours, suffering, storms, discouragement, confusion, sickness, and correction are all temporal. Isaiah 54:10 says, “For the mountains may be removed and the hills may shake, But My lovingkindness will not be removed from you, And My covenant of peace will not be shaken,” Says the LORD who has compassion on you. I have learned that God will meet you in the valley, valleys aren’t meant to be mortgaged for 30 years, and sometimes valleys are a gift from God. Jesus is the Light of life, He is the Good Shepherd and a good shepherd does not lead His sheep into a deep dark valley and just leave them there. Hebrews 13:5 says, “He will never leave us nor forsake us.” I don’t know about you but in the midst of all my struggles and the fact that the valley is only a temporary place is worth shouting about because it is our reassurance that trouble don’t always last. Therefore, we can say with confidence, “The LORD is my helper, so I will have no fear. What can mere people [valley] do to me?” (Hebrews 13:6)
