The Valley, the Shadow, and a Promise - Love Worth Finding - October 18

Unchanging truths from Scripture to apply to your changing life

The Valley, the Shadow, and a Promise

October 18

“The Lordisnigh unto all them that call upon Him, to all that call upon Him in truth.” Psalm 145:18

Psalm 23 speaks of the “valley of the shadow of death.” For every shadow, there must be light. Jesus Christ said, “I am the light of the world” (John 8:12). A shadow may frighten you, but a shadow cannot really hurt you.

I dare say that a shadow at one time or another has spooked many of us. But thank God, death is but a shadow if you know the Lord Jesus Christ. If you keep your face toward the light, the shadow will fall behind you. You won’t even see the shadow. God doesn’t bring us to a valley to leave us there. He always

brings us through. 

God is never closer than when you are in a dark valley. That’s when He is especially near. In the original language, we’re told Hebrews 13:5 actually has five negatives! The Amplified Bible translates it this way: “I will never, no, not ever, never leave you nor forsake you.” Memorize this short, precious verse today.
