This month in the Harvest Women’s Prayer and Learning group, we are reading and meditating on Psalm 84. I’ve always been familiar with verse 11 which is one of my life verses. However, at the end of March, I was reading this chapter and saw all the promises written in it that I had never seen before.
While reading it during the prayer call his morning, verses 5-7 in the Good News Translation stood out to me.
5 How happy are those whose strength comes from you, who are eager to
make the pilgrimage to Mount Zion. 6 As they pass through the dry valley
of Baca (or Weeping, in other versions), it becomes a place of springs; the
autumn rain fills it with pools. 7 They grow stronger as they go; they will
see the God of gods on Zion.
This passage tells us that God is our source of strength. Those who are not afraid of going on a journey of faith with him will be happy and will need His strength to do it. We have to keep our hand in our Savior’s hands and trust that when He leads us, He is sure to keep us safe and care for us so tenderly.
When in the valley, where there seems to be no provision, a place where we may experience trials, times of uncertainty and deep sadness, we can be encouraged that we are just passing through. We are not there to make it a place of residence. Know that it will soon become a place of provision and blessing. God will provide for you in abundance. Keep moving one foot in front of the other. You will grow stronger and you will see God if you don’t give up. He will not leave you nor forsake you. Keep moving through this season. One step at a time. One day at a time. One hour at a time. Press…
Press into Him. Ask Him to grip you so that you not only know He is there, you feel Him there too.
Beloved, as you are passing through the valley, you can be confident that you will receive provision in the valley. You will be strengthened in the valley. And you will definitely see your God show up.
For He who promises is faithful to come through for YOU. He loves you so much!
