The Valley… He’s There Too!

The Valley… He’s There Too!

Psalm 23 Psalm 23:1 A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

Psalm 23:2 He lets me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside quiet waters.

Psalm 23:3 He restores my soul;
He guides me in the paths of righteousness
For the sake of His name.

Psalm 23:4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

Psalm 23:5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You have anointed my head with oil;
My cup overflows.

Psalm 23:6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

 There is always a valley between two mountains. Before each mountain top experience comes a walk down below. Some can live on the mountain top with the Lord for extended periods of time but some cannot for some reason or another.

We reach the mountain top, live there a while but then comes a wind of defeat or a wind of discouragement and the wind blows us right down to the bottom of the mountain again.

Some valleys are wide, some are narrow. Some are on rough ground and some on smooth ground. Most suicides occur there and most marriages break up while one or both mates are there.

I know I am talking to several today who are there and some people live there most of the time. It may be because of physical reasons, emotional reasons, or spiritual reasons. Whatever the reason, too many of us have an address in the valley.

If you are going to be successful in climbing the mountain, then you must recognize what’s in the valley.

I. God is There.

(v.4) “…for thou art with me.”

  • The only way God can speak to some of us is in the valley. Some Christians get high up the mountain and their ears get stopped up and they can’t hear God speak. Some get so high in the mountains that they get in the fog and can’t see spiritually.
  • There is a different living standard there. The same vegetation doesn’t grow there as it does on the mountain top. Sometimes the only way to get the right spiritual diet is to go to the valley. God may have to take us down there in order to take us up to the mountain top.

II. Ground Zero is There. (v.4) “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death…”

In the early days of the automobile, the driver had to get a long run at the next hill in order to get up and over the mountain top. I had a Volkswagen that was like that. We’ve had a church bus or two that was like that, haven’t we?

  • The valley is the ground floor for success.
  • It is the only access to the mountain.
  • It is where the elevator is. If you enter the elevator at the top, the only direction is down. Maybe you know a high school student, a college student, a mom, a dad, a teacher, a married couple, or someone else who is in the valley and can’t seem to get out. Maybe you know someone who is considering throwing in the towel. Maybe you know someone who can’t seem to get a handle on their relationships. If it is you, get on the elevator. If it is someone you know, help them get on the elevator because it is about ready to leave the launching pad and the mountain top is the first stop.

III. Grappling is There. (v.4) “thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”

Jeremiah 2:23 “How can you say, ‘I am not defiled,
I have not gone after the Baals’?
Look at your way in the valley!
Know what you have done!
You are a swift young camel running about senselessly on her ways;

Jeremiah 49:4 How you boast about the valleys!
Your valley is flowing away,
You backsliding daughter
Who trusts in her treasures, saying,
‘Who can come against me?’

Joel 3:14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.

This place is always a place of decision. Am I going to stay here or am I going to climb the mountain? We must grapple with our decisions and trust the Lord so we can make the right choice. There is a battle between the flesh and the spirit. Will I make the decision to stay in the world or climb the mountain to spiritual attainment? Will I trust myself or the Lord? Will I depend on my strength or the rod and staff of the Lord?

  • The only reason for staying in the valley is that you don’t make a decision to get out.
  • Most successful people made life-changing decisions while in the valley. Sam Jones was a drunkard in the pits of the saloon and accepted Christ and made the decision to climb the mountain and he became a great preacher. The prodigal son said, “I will arise and climb the mountain back home!” One preacher was offered a lot of money if he would get rid of his bus ministry and the snotty-nosed kids and the preacher chose the kids over the millionaire.

IV. Grace is There. (v.5-6) Psalm 23:5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
you have anointed my head with oil;
My cup overflows.

Psalm 23:6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

  • Luke 3:5, “Every valley shall be filled, every mountain and hill shall be brought low.” That means that the mountain is accessible to all who trust the Lord and start climbing.
  • Romans 8:28, “All things work together for good to them who love God.”

 What about it? Are you going to stay in the valley for the rest of your life? You don’t need to. Why don’t you get out today? Why don’t you decide to start climbing the mountain today?

A big part of our ministry is music, so I thought I give you the lyrics to a song to help lift your spirits.

Song: “I Heard Footsteps”

Talkin’ bout the mountains;
I’ve climbed them,
Felt the sunshine on my shoulders.
Felt the warm winds blow.

Talkin’ bout the valleys,
I’ve been there.
Had my world to crumble down.
Felt the teardrops flow.

And I heard footsteps,
Walkin’ in the shadows.
And a hand reaching out
To tell me He was there.

Until next we meet again I’ll leave you with this Prayer:

Heavenly Father, we thank you for always being there and taking care of us, who love you so much. We ask for forgiveness and mercy in our daily walk with you and we realize without you we are lost and will surely remain in the valley.

Father, we need your help, our country needs your help. Some of us feel forgotten and alone without any help to fight back against what our country is doing, we fear for our freedom and way of life. We pray for Godly intervention. Lord, you can bring to justice all involved in the attempt to destroy our democracy and bring us back to a Godly nation. 

Lord Jesus, I pray you will show yourself and satan will flee and all your enemies will be revealed and justice will be administered.

I pray healing and love come over our land, as well as a worldwide awakening recognizing you as the Lord and Saviour of the universe. You are the answer … the only answer.

In Jesus name, we pray,

AMEN

Here It Is… The Truth!

 

I love all of you in Christ Jesus. I pray that all of God’s children would read this and find solace in what I’ve been trying to pass to them what the Lord has been telling me all along. (Read the message before this one.) Of course, there will still be naysayers but remember what I’ve been teaching … Fear is the opposite of faith. Do you trust God or not? That has a yes or no answer, no middle of the road, Revelation 3:16. Carefully read what was released today from the same people who lied to you in the first place;

The number of reported COVID-19 infections has plummeted 40% in the United States in just one week and 30% worldwide in the past three weeks.

And the primary reason is not the distribution of vaccines, contend, experts, who point out that only 8% of Americans and 13% of people worldwide have received their first dose, DailyMail.com reported.

 

A New York Times COVID-19 case tracker indicated cases in the U.S. were down 30% from just last week, according to Marketwatch. Statistics from Johns Hopkins show the nation’s seven-day rolling average is down 40%.

Daily cases have dropped 45% since the latest peak on Jan. 11, according to data from the COVID-19 Tracking Project.

 

The World Health Organization said Monday its World in Data graphs show the daily infection rate has fallen by 30% over the past three weeks.

Some public health experts told DailyMail.com it’s possible that more people contracted the virus than previously thought, and some regions could be experiencing herd immunity.

Many epidemiologists have noted the coronavirus, in a second wave, is following the bell-shaped pattern of epidemics predicted by Farr’s Law in 1840, regardless of mitigation efforts.

Further, in January, the World Health Organization officially acknowledged that the “gold standard” test used to diagnose COVID-19 has a high rate of false-positives that make it unreliable.

Bottom of Form

In a July podcast that resurfaced in December, Dr. Anthony Fauci admitted the widely used PCR tests pick up harmless fragments of the coronavirus, resulting in many false-positive cases that result in overstating the threat. In August, the New York Times examined PCR testing data in three states and found “up to 90 percent of people testing positive carried barely any virus.”

In an advisory to lab workers issued Jan. 13, the WHO recommended a second test to confirm any diagnosis for people who aren’t showing any symptoms of the disease.

“Where test results do not correspond with the clinical presentation, a new specimen should be taken,” the guidance says.

The WHO warns that most PCR tests “are indicated as an aid for diagnosis,” meaning health care providers should consider at least seven other factors to confirm any test.

WND reported in December an external peer review concluded a major paper supporting the PCR test for COVID-19 has 10 “serious flaws,” resulting in many false-positive cases.

A briefing published by four British scientists concluded PCR testing is “distorting policy and creating the illusion that we are in a serious pandemic when in fact we are not.”

“A false positive pseudo-epidemic is a well-described phenomenon in the medical literature which results in an exponential rise in diagnosed cases and deaths but no excess deaths,” the British researchers write.

Until the next time we get together … KEEP LOOKING UP!

 

My prayer for you; Praying Hands

Father, what a rollercoaster ride we’ve been on, if it wasn’t for You we’d be surely lost. In this time of scare tactics, the evil one is using we thank you for the TRUTH and give you all the praise and glory.

We thank you for holding us in the palm of your hand and loving us so much. I pray you continue to bring the truth to light and the evil ones would get the punishment they deserve.

I also pray for you to heal our land and open the eyes of non-believers and bring our country back in line with your word, protect the unborn, heal the sick, and use in a mighty way to help build your kingdom…

In Jesus name, we pray,

Amen
