The Valley Is A Temporary Place

(237)

Sermon shared by Spencer Miller

April 2013
Summary: The valleys of life are not dead-end streets, because God provides a way for us to get through.
Denomination: Baptist
Audience: General adults
afraid of a shadow? A shadow is just an illusion, a shadow canít hurt us but it can make us hurt ourselves. A shadow is caused by an object blocking the light and sometimes a shadow can make things look gloomy and dark but with every shadow we need to look towards the Light. 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.

He does not watch over us from outside of the valley, He does not call us from the other side of the valley because He is with us through the valley. Well, have you any valleys in your life? Have you any rivers that seem un-crossable? Have you a situation that seems as if youíll never make it through? Youíve prayed about it and then you finally decided to just wait on the Lord and all of the sudden you began to see the end of valley? Iíll tell you right now, there is a blessing at the end of valley!

Conclusion

It is GOD Himself who walks with us through lifeís trials to deliver us from all evil and fear. Yes, the valley is where we do our struggling, it is where we have to cry sometimes, and yes the valley is inevitable through out our journey in life, from our earliest existence all the way up unto our departure from this world, but GOD comforts us with the assurance that even earthly death will never separate our souls from dwelling in His holy presence forever in Heaven! This is why Paul declared that our deliverance from evil by the loving sacrifice of CHRIST on our behalf in GALATIANS 1:4, ďWho gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of GOD and our Father!Ē Truly, as it is written, we will fear no evil, for Thou art with us! And truly, as it is written, we shall dwell in the house of The LORD forever! I donít 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 donít last always." Amen.

This is true and reassuring; the Lord permits though He is able to prevent. He also develops us through the various valley experiences so that our perception is made better in His service. Great work, thanks for this post.

Great uplifting word indeed. You know God works in mysterious ways when you are down to nothing He is up to something. He is my Sheperd as well whatever Iam going through I know it shall pass in Jesus''s name.
