In the valley, where shadows loom and the path ahead seems uncertain, many find themselves questioning their purpose. Yet, it is in these depths that we may discover the most profound sense of direction and meaning.
Consider Psalm 23:4, "Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me." This scripture is a powerful reminder that our purpose isn't absent in the valley; rather, it's often more clearly revealed.
The valley experience is a transformative journey, a refining process that strips away the superficial and leaves us with the essence of what truly matters. In this place of humbling terrain, God does not abandon us. Instead, He walks alongside us, guiding and comforting us. It's here, in the quietude of our trials, that we are invited to lean into our faith, to listen for the whisper of the Divine that directs our steps and refines our purpose.
Charles Capps, with his practical and hopeful approach, would encourage us to speak life into our situation. To declare, even in the midst of our valley, that we are being led to higher ground. He might say, "Speak to your mountain with the authority of God's word, and it shall be moved. Your current valley is not your final destination but a passage to your purpose."
So, in the valley, let us not be preoccupied with the why, but rather focus on the WHO that is with us. For in doing this, we find that our purpose is not lost; it is being shaped, honed, and prepared for the moment we emerge from the shadows, not just to climb mountains but to move them.
