God’s prescription for your dark valleys Psalms 23:4; Valleys are inevitable. You are going the valleys (trouble), just came out of a valley, or you are getting ready to come to a valley. In John 16:33 it states we will have trouble and there is no way to avoid them.Valleys are unpredictable. Disaster follows disaster. Instead of turning to God in times of despair we turn to idolatrous ways which leads us to more disaster because God calls to us to repent but we cannot hear His voice.
Valleys are Temporary. Walk thru and know that it is just a season that has an end. 1 Peter 1:6b-7 says for us to rejoice greatly because of the salvation God has prepared for us. God also recognize the agony due to the pressure and difficulties of life. Our light affliction is only for a moment and is working for us a far.
Valleys are Purposeful. There is always a reason for the valley. Just as the purity of gold is brought forth by intense heat, so will our faith be tested (1 Peter 1:7). Romans 8:28 we know that ALL things work together for good to those who love GOD, to those who are called according the His purpose.
Valleys are impartial. There is no respect a person. We all go thru valleys, young/old; poor/rich; healthy/unhealthy etc. Matthew 5:45 Jesus said that the Father makes the sun rises on the evil and the good and sends rain for the just and the unjust. Just as God displays His love without discrimination, so will there be valleys. more exceeding and eternal weight of glory according to 2 Cor. 4:17
