IN THE VALLEY
OR ON THE
“But the fruit of the
Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith.”
Are you in the valley of despair or on the mountain of Joy? If you
are in the valley of despair, you do not have to stay there! It is a
lie straight from the pits of hell that we have to remain in valleys.
This verse gives us the ingredients for us to use in our daily lives but
too often we forget to put them into practice. God has given us all
we need to live a daily, victorious life through Jesus. However, He
is not going to do it for us. W e can ask Him for strength and courage to
do what we need to do, but we are the ones to employ these principles He
has given to us.
I challenge you to let Jesus help you get out of the valley of despair and
back up on the mountain of Joy. Never forget that God may want to
use you today and you need to be ready.
