APOSTOLIC OUTREACH: Mountain & Valley Situations
WORD CREDENCE: “For it is a day of trouble, and of treading down, and of perplexity by the Lord God of hosts in the valley of vision, breaking down the walls, and of crying to the mountains” Isaiah 22:5 KJV
APOSTOLIC ADMONITION: A mountain is a large mass of earth and rock, rising above the common level of the earth or adjacent land. Whereas a valley is an elongated depression between hills or mountains, often with a river flowing through it. All the aforementioned are the physical descriptions of tangible mountain and valley. However in the context of this blog, a mountain period in a man’s blissful, triumphant, elated, successful, merry, and fulfillment time. Meanwhile, a valley period symbolizes a troubled, trying, depressive, recessive, oppressive and managing time. Amazingly, both periods are essential if a man’s life will be adequately circuited, well schooled, groomed, and complete. The valley period may look and seem nasty, hard and difficult though, but it is gracefully nurturing and well watered. It builds up character and stability; and as well teaches sobriety, productivity, values, profitability, endurance, discipline, conscience, longsuffering, correction, generosity, right perspective, etc. For example, Apostle Paul wrote most of his epistles while in solitary confinements. Also Joseph, Esther, Daniel, Moses, etc, even Jesus, had their fair share of the dark, tunnel, tough times. The universally craved; and commonly desired mountain top breakthrough may actually be a time of glamour, ease, lifting, fame, rising, cheers, shinning, elevation, manifestations, etc. Yes, it may as well be a good and testimony time indeed; but surely, it is a perilous time. A time to be careful of falling, complacency, mediocrity, self sufficiency, laxity abuses, etc. Without the valley experience, mountain glory may not be appreciated. Darkness is the reason we all value light. Therefore, glorify God equally for both the mountain and valley situations, they are important to wholesome living. Positive and negative wires are required to produce light.
APOSTOLIC BENEDICTION: You fell? Not an issue; “… a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again …..” (Pro 24:16) You are lifted in the name of Jesus. Amen.
