Psalm 84:6, NLT
When they walk through the Valley of Weeping, it will become a place of refreshing springs.
When you face opposition and things don't go your way, recognize that it's not permanent. That's not your final destination. Quit worrying about things that are only temporary-the betrayal, the injustice, the loneliness. That's not your permanent home. It's a temporary stop. The psalmist wrote of passing through the Valley of Weeping, not settling or getting stuck there. The valley is temporary; you're passing through it.
You may have a dream that you've buried and given up on. Maybe you're going through a valley right now, something you don't understand. Maybe you're on a detour right now, going through something that is very discouraging. My challenge is to quit losing sleep over a temporary stop. Quit being stressed out over something that's only for a season; it's not permanent. You're just passing through what will lead you to a place of refreshing springs. The right people, the right opportunities, the healing, the vindication, the restoration are headed your way. Dreams you've buried will be coming back to life.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that You have seen every tear I've shed and every dark valley I've walked through. Thank You that the valley is only temporary and that I just need to walk in faith through it. I believe that where You lead me will take me to refreshing springs and restoration. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
