1 Kings 20 :26 -29
The next spring Ben-Hadad mustered the Arameans and went up to Aphek to fight against Israel. When the Israelites were also mustered and given provisions, they marched out to meet them. The Israelites camped opposite them like two small flocks of goats, while the Arameans covered the countryside.
The man of God came up and told the king of Israel, “This is what the Lord says: ‘Because the Arameans think the Lord is a god of the hills and not a god of the valleys, I will deliver this vast army into your hands, and you will know that I am the Lord.’ ”
For seven days they camped opposite each other, and on the seventh day the battle was joined. The Israelites inflicted a hundred thousand casualties on the Aramean foot soldiers in one day.
GOD OF THE VALLEYS.
Praise the Lord!! We serve God of situations and circumstances.We serve a God who is able to save and deliver and be with us in all seasons and times.
His strength and might does not diminish in any circumstances.Now to the scripture above:The Israelites army defeated the army of king Benhadad on the top of a hill.
One of his assistant said to him"their gods are the gods of the hills.If we fight them in the valleys,we will certainly defeat them". So Benhadad attacked the Israelites in the valley.God said to the Israelites"They think I'm just the God of mountains (hills) and not the valleys.I will help you defeat them to show them that I am the God of both".
Which enemy are you facing right now?What challenge are you undergoing right now?The God who saved you is still strong and performing miracles.May you receive your miracle now in Jesus mighty name.Be delivered from that situation in the name of Jesus.
When we are in the mountains getting good reports and life is good, we know God is with us.But sometimes when we are in the valley,we think:"God where are you?Why is this happening to me?"
Be encouraged my brother/sister.Our God is aslo God of the valleys.God of the mountains is God of the valleys.David the psalmist said"He is a very present help in times of trouble". When you are in the valley, God is right there with you,a very present help.
Psalm 23:4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,I will fear no evil,for you are with me: your rod and your staff,they comfort me.
PRAYER: Father in Jesus name,thank you that you are God of both my mountains and my valleys.Thank you that when I am in the valleys ,you will show out that you are my Lord.Thank you that you will show yourself mighty on my behalf.
I believe and declare that you are my very present help in any time of trouble.In Jesus name I pray.
Amen and Amen.
