There are days when I walk on the mountain top, basking in the warm rays of God’s love. Then, suddenly something overshadows me and I slide into the valley. Well, there I was, crying in the valley when I heard Him whisper, “Believe in My love.” He led me from scripture to scripture and the following message.
”Don’t be discouraged, I am with you. Look for me. I am walking with you always, even in the valley. I will not abandon you. Believe in my love.
I will be strength to you. I will give grace to sustain you, no matter what. Throughout your lifetime, until you are old and gray, I am with you. I made you and I will care for you…always.
Believe in my love, sweet child, not just in your mind, but experience it in your heart. Come to me.
Intimate time spent with me reveals my love deep into your heart, bypassing the mind and emotions. It is not a feeling it is a knowing. My steadfast love will keep you forever! Let my love nourish your heart every day, for it will empower you to live a full and abundant life.”
So, did His radiant love leave me? No, I just allowed some life situation to block me from experiencing it. I was the one who let it separate me from Him. He didn’t go anywhere. The sun (Son) shines in the valley too and because He loves me, I know His faithful love will once again have us walking together on the mountain top!
Isaiah 41:10 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.
Psalm 83:33 But I will never, no never, lift my faithful love from off your life. My kindness will prevail and I will never disown you.
