The God of Your Valley

Jezreel Valley from Mt Precipice

We mentioned the ‘valleys’ the other day, and so many times believers predetermine that they’re in a ‘valley’ when they encounter various problems. Let’s reevaluate that thought. Sure, we all encounter situations, some good, some not so good in our everyday lives; but to say we’re ‘in a valley’ at the moment is to confess that you’re all alone and you aren’t. The Syrian army thought they could defeat Israel in the valley because they figured Israel’s God was the God of only the mountains. Here’s what the Lord said in 1 Kings 20:28, ‘Because the Syrians have said, “The Lord is God of the hills, but He is not God of the valleys,” therefore I will deliver all this great multitude into your hand, and you shall know that I am the Lord.’ Be encouraged because there’s no valley too deep for the power and presence of the Lord. As Joseph Prince says, ‘there’s nowhere you can go where you’re not covered by God’s mercy and grace…He is with you and will never leave. The God of the valleys is your strength. He will uphold you with His righteous right hand and deliver you from your enemies.”
