Joshua 11:1-12:24 / Luke 17:11-37 / Psalm 84:1-12 / Proverbs 13:5-6

Standout Verse:

Psalm 84:5-6

“Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on a pilgrimage.  As they pass through the Valley of Baca, they make it a spring; the rain covers it with pools.  They go from strength to strength.”

Life is a great, adventurous, pilgrimage that is meant to be journeyed with the Lord.  Our lives will surely be filled with great joys, ups and downs, struggles, difficulties and drought.  Yet, through it ALL God promises to walk WITH us and be our STRENGTH. 

Baca is a plant that is able to survive dry conditions…these verses underscore that a person whose strength comes from the Lord will be able to REMAIN GREEN AND NOT WITHER - even in the driest of times.  With the Lord by our side, we can emerge from challenges, times of leanness and difficulties stronger than we ever were before.  Such hope-filled TRUTH!
