I’ve been thinking a lot about the valleys of life lately. While working on a sermon on this topic I realized that so often we seem to struggle with the testing of the valley and miss all of its benefits. Following is an outline about some of the attributes of valleys that we should understand as Christians.
Valleys can create a victim mentality
Valleys can limit your vision
Valleys can confuse the voice you are following
Valleys can be cold and lonely
- Remember that David walked out into the valley to meet Goliath alone.
Valleys can be green and fertile
Valleys can protect you from the storm or the sun
Lilies grow in the Valley
When you find yourself in a valley, don’t be discouraged and lose hope. God is with you to strengthen you for the journey ahead. Remember that the unsaved are watching to see if your God is still God in the valley.
Let’s show them that HE IS!
