Don’t Get Stuck in the Valley

Mountains are big and in most cases, will be hard to climb. What you face may be too big for you to handle. With God, you will stand the test of time.

The valley is a test of your faith during a trial. God wants to see how much you will trust Him in the trial. It may be hard but know this. God will lead you out of the valley and will plant you on top of the mountain for such a time as this. God will give you strength to handle it.

When fear and discouragement cross your mind, know that God is there and will give you peace of mind. You mustn’t try to handle things on your own. God is Almighty. Let him handle it. For he sits high on the throne.

If God left everything up to you, your life would be a total mess because of you. God knows what’s best. He won’t let you settle for less.

When we’re stubborn and set in our own ways, we linger in the valley for what seems like forever trying to find our way out. Humbly submit to God. He’ll provide a way out.

God won’t deny you to climb the mountain set in a valley he brought you to. The valley you go through is set to prepare you to get to where God is taking you. God will take you through the valley to strengthen you so that you’re able to receive what he planned; to prosper you, plans to elevate you. It’s all God’s plan. Place your cares upon the Lord. Leave it all in God’s hands.

When you get to the place where God is leading you, the mountain will not be hard to climb. Even when you refused to see it, God was there all the time. It will happen all in his time. You will come through. Assured it was God and only God who brought you through.

Don’t linger in the valley because of what you refuse to do, because in the end it will only hurt you. Let go of selfishness, self-centeredness, and foolish pride. Let God instruct you and be your guide.  Change your ways. Take the advice written in God’s words that may come from others. It may be an unexpected source God is using to communicate his message to you through others.

Don’t allow your past to hinder you from doing the work of the Lord. God can use you just as he used Paul. Answer the call. God forgives you. Don’t let fear and stubbornness paralyze you.

God wants to use you to do his will. Don’t let your foolish will hinder you from obeying God and doing His will.

Don’t get stuck in the valley. Follow God’s lead. Climb your way out of the valley. God will move mountains when you let him lead.

Be blessed! –JD

1 Timothy 1:12-14 “I give thanks to Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength for my work. I thank him for considering me worthy and appointing me to serve him, 13 even though in the past I spoke evil of him and persecuted and insulted him. But God was merciful to me because I did not yet have faith and so did not know what I was doing. 14 And our Lord poured out his abundant grace on me and gave me the faith and love which are ours in union with Christ Jesus.” (GNB)
