The valley is but an opportunity to walk through it with a Person. God designs the valleys, determines the length, depth of each valley. Each valley is but another opportunity- as painful as the process may be to learn to walk with and walk through the valley with The Shepherd of your soul the Lord Jesus. And though there be fear and evil in the valley they will not triumph or have the ultimate say in your life. Your Shepherd will and does! He will make sure He walks with you through the valley!
Every valley He walks you through is a testimony and call to trust Him for the next one. As your faith and confidence grows in Him so will your love and testimony to Him! He is LORD over the valleys, you face, and remember you never face alone. Follow in obedience to the Shepherd. The Shepherd always goes ahead of His own and will walk you through!!
So what is your particular “valley” today dear friend of the Lamb? Does He not know? Does it seem as though He does not care, or has forgot you? A thousand arrows of darkness assaults the mind of the Christian but we choose to believe our unseen Savior and we know that we WILL walk through this particular valley and with each valley as wearying as they often can be, we can learn to trust Him for the next part of the journey because our Shepherd is teaching us to trust in Him who alone is reliable!
This same Shepherd once became a Lamb for you- slaughtered, offered up as a sin sacrifice in your place, and His offering accepted by God and on the third day He arose victor over the grave, satan and sin, and now lives to be your SHEPHERD. So you can say, in any and all valleys, “The Lord is MY Shepherd, I shall not want… He is with me, His rod and staff to COMFORT me.”-
There is hope in this particular valley for there is God in every valley you will ever encounter to lead and guide and comfort you to continue and enable you to walk through the valleys, for He is with you and “You’ll never walk alone!”
