By Evangelist Barbara Lynch
If there was a way out of the valleys, you would have found them already; but the only way out of a valley is to lift up your hands towards Me and seek My face with all of your being and I will answer that call and I will walk you through your valley experiences. The valley is there to strengthen you and to cause you to draw closer to Me.
If you will look, there is much wisdom in your valley experiences. I would never allow a valley experience, if there wasn’t anything to learn in the valley.
Some say cruel; others say I don’t understand why! But I say unto you, every valley carries its rewards and if you would allow Me to, I would point out those rewards while you are still in the valley. Praise your way through the valley and watch what miracle I perform for you. Remember, there is much to glean out of your valleys.
1 Kings 20:28 (MSG) 28 Just then a holy man approached the king of Israel saying, “This is GOD’s word: Because Aram said, ‘GOD is a god of the mountains and not a god of the valleys,’ I’ll hand over this huge mob of an army to you. Then you’ll know that I am GOD.”
Psalm 84:5-7 (NKJV) 5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, Whose heart is set on pilgrimage. 6 As they pass through the Valley of Baca, They make it a spring; The rain also covers it with pools. 7 They go from strength to strength; Each one appears before God in Zion.
Joel 3:14 (NKJV)
14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.
