I heard, “Your Valley of Weeping shall become a Valley of Blessing. The Valley of Misery shall become your Mountaintop of MIRACLES!”
And I saw a Warrior of God in a valley. When all around him looked hopeless, still he knelt down and praised God through his tears.
As he did his eyes were opened to see that The LORD of Hosts was with Him!
The very “valley” you find yourself in today shall become your place of triumph! Why? Because God is with you, Mighty Warrior!
Even though you walk through the Valley of the Shadow of death, you shall fear NO evil! Jesus has TRIUMPHED at the Cross for YOU!
Praise Him in the valley! Your tears shall turn into shouts of JOY!
“Beloved. I AM He who is with you on the mountain tops and in the valleys.
I have conquered the heights and the depths for you.
I own the high places and the low. The earth is Mine and the fullness thereof.
NOTHING can separate you from the Love of God in Christ Jesus. Though a thousand fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, it shall not come nigh you.
I have overthrown the hosts of your enemies. Always remember, I am in you and you in Me.
Though your ancient foe seeks to work you woe, and though there is none on earth his equal in the natural, YOU are MORE than a conqueror through Him who loves you.
You have the Right Man on your side, Dear One, The LORD of Hosts, His name!
I have won the battle! The enemy shall NOT undo you! He who is the WORD has conquered! Your test shall become a testimony.
Suddenly, your tears shall become shouts of Joy — for The LORD is with you, Mighty Warrior!
You shall NOT be overcome but you shall overcome. I shall turn this Valley of Weeping into your Valley of Blessing!
This very hard circumstance I AM walking you through shall become a Place of Testimony!
Yes, My Child. Not by might or power, but BY MY SPIRIT shall this valley of misery become your Mountaintop of MIRACLES!,” says The LORD of Hosts!
Valley of BACA : Strong’s Hebrew 1056: ‘weeping’
Valley of BERACAH : Strong’s Hebrew 1294: Blessing; to kneel and bless; A valley in the wilderness where Jehoshaphat and his people assembled to bless Yahweh after the overthrow of the hosts of their enemies.
A Mighty Fortress is Our God
Music and lyrics by Martin Luther
“A mighty Fortress is our God,
A Bulwark never failing;
Our Helper He amid the flood
Of mortal ills prevailing:
For still our ancient foe
Doth seek to work us woe;
His craft and power are great,
And, armed with cruel hate,
On earth is not his equal.
Did we in our own strength confide,
Our striving would be losing;
Were not the right Man on our side,
The Man of God’s own choosing:
Dost ask who that may be?
Christ Jesus, it is He;
Lord Sabaoth His Name,
From age to age the same,
And He must win the battle.
And though this world, with devils filled,
Should threaten to undo us,
We will not fear, for God hath willed
His truth to triumph through us:
The Prince of Darkness grim,
We tremble not for him;
His rage we can endure,
For lo! his doom is sure,
One little word shall fell him.
That word above all earthly powers,
No thanks to them, abideth;
The Spirit and the gifts are ours
Through Him who with us sideth:
Let goods and kindred go,
This mortal life also;
The body they may kill:
God’s truth abideth still,
His Kingdom is forever.”
“Blessed are those whose strength is in You, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage. As they pass through the Valley of Baca, they make it a place of springs; even the autumn rain covers it with pools.” Psalm 84:5-6
“When Jehoshaphat and his people came to take their spoil, they found much among them, including goods, garments and valuable things which they took for themselves, more than they could carry. And they were three days taking the spoil because there was so much. Then on the fourth day they assembled in the valley of Beracah, for there they blessed The LORD. Therefore they have named that place “The Valley of Blessing” until today.” 2 Chronicles 20:25-26
“Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:37-39
“Those who sow in tears will reap with shouts of joy!” Psalm 126:5
“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of The LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.”
Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence.
He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you. Only with your eyes shall you look, and see the reward of the wicked.
Because you have made The LORD, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; for He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.
In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone. You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, the young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.
Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, and show him My salvation.”” Psalm 91:1-16
