I made and continue to make valleys and hills, the dry and the wet places. I set the cliffs with their glorious views, and their sudden drops. I touch the tops of huge mountains, where oxygen levels are thinner. All are places of MY beauty, home to innumerable creatures, many too small to see with the naked eye. My hand is visible throughout the earth. And so it is in the spiritual realms, my children.
You have labelled ‘spiritual valleys’ as places to get out of as soon as possible, to scramble away from. You have preached that the mountain-high experiences are to be gained at any, and at all costs. As a result, there are those who struggle, having been put aside. Have you forgotten that my Son served thankless people, and he fasted through wilderness times, living through torture, and was killed? Yet my Son did what he saw me do, following my will sinlessly.
When you feel that you are in a valley, know that I am in the valleys: I am everywhere. Moreover, there is beauty in valleys to be understood, and appreciated. Small, yet significant, new choices can unlock hope. The insights from Holy Spirit, which begin when wrestling hard things with me, will lead to strategies that transform. Do not be afraid of valleys. I am there and I give you wonders to enjoy.
Blessed and greatly favoured is the man whose strength is in You, in whose heart are the highways to Zion. Passing through the Valley of Weeping (Baca), they make it a place of springs; the early rain also covers it with blessings. They go from strength to strength, [increasing in victorious power]; Each of them appears before God in Zion.Psalm 84:5-7 (AMP)
