“God does not further our spiritual Life in spite of our circumstances, but in and by our circumstances.” ~Oswald Chambers
“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28 NASB
It is comforting to me to realize that no matter what happens in my life, God can use it to mold and shape me into a better person. He can use circumstances to give me a greater understanding; a deeper revelation; and a deeper love for those that have gone through the same thing.
He uses circumstances that could devastate and destroy us as tools to draw us closer to Him. He uses these times to exhibit His strength as we are at our weakest.
Beloved, are you in a valley right now? Do you feel the darkness around you and believe there is no way out? Do not fear!! God is with you! HE HAS A PLAN!!
His plan is to guide you through the darkness into the Light! His plan is to release His peace and strength within you so you can climb out of the valley with Him. And as you look back on this “valley time” you will see how God used this time to raise you to greater heights!
Look up!! Do you see the Lord’s hand reaching out to you? Grab it and leave the valley behind!!
