“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil, for you are with me.” Psalm 23:4
Did you notice how we are to get through the valley of the shadow?
We cannot run through this valley.
There are things to see here.
There are lessons to learn here.
There may even be beauty to behold here.
Did you notice what happens when we keep walking?
We get through it.
We must not set up camp in this valley.
It is not where we dwell.
It is not a permanent residence.
The journey may be hard, but it only lasts for a season.
Did you notice why we fear no evil?
Because He’s with us.
We don’t walk alone through the shadowy valley.
Yes, it might be scary.
Yes, the darkness may hold dangers.
But we stay close to the calm voice of our Shepherd.
