We may enjoy God on the mountaintops, but we get to know Him intimately in the valleys.
In The Valley
(Psalm 84:5-7 NIV) “Blessed are those whose strength is in you, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage. As they pass through the Valley of Baka, they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains also cover it with pools. They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion.”
(Psalm 84:5 NIV) “Blessed are those whose strength is in you.”
1. Seek the strength of the Lord.
(Psalm 84:5 NIV/NLT) “Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their minds on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem.”
2. Fix your mind.
(Psalm 84:6 NLT) “As they pass through the Valley of Baka, they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains also cover it with pools.”
(Psalm 84:6 KJV) “…Passing through the valley of Baca make it a well.”
3. Dig a well.
God never said you won’t go through valleys, but you never have to go through the valleys alone.
(Psalm 139:7-10 NIV) “Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.“
