YouTube Video (Click Here): Song, “Hills and Valleys” by Tauren Wells
My God! Listen believers, we will have hills and valleys until our Savior Yeshua comes back and fights with us and for us to defeat Satan and send him to the pits of hell forever. But, how do we respond to the valleys? Are we pouting? Are we angry with God? Are we rebelling? Are we refusing to serve Him because we think our valleys are lower than the entire body of believers who is suffering all over the world just like we are?
I challenge you (and me) to respond to the valleys in the same way we respond to the hills. We give God glory when He increases, promotes, blesses us with favor, and rewards us. Our valleys are real; I can’t deny it. Our valleys are job loss, home loss, money loss, friend loss, diseases gained, cheating spouses gained, hurt gained, and loneliness gained. I couldn’t and wouldn’t dare downplay the valleys. But the valleys are inevitable. The devil wants to take us out but the valleys or attacks don’t have to affect us the way we’ve allowed them to. They don’t have to take us out. They don’t have to kill us. We have power over the valleys. We can speak to them. We can make them move. We can overcome them. God is sovereign. Do you think that He doesn’t see you? He does see you and He is with you in every one of your valley moments. Remember, sin and evil came by Satan’s temptation of Adam and Eve. Sin didn’t come from God. God’s Word has to stand. We have to stop blaming God and start trusting Him in the valleys too. He has us. Please believe it. He loves us and cares for us in the ups and the downs. Jené Elaine Walker
