“Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well;”(Psalm 84:6).The valley of Baca means a place of tears. There is a valley of Baca, it was a barren desert full of vipers and robbers and dangerous wild animals. It was a very hard,and desolate place. All Jewish males were required to go up to Jerusalem three times a year to worship at the temple, and many had to go through the valley of Baca to get there.Job went through this valley when satan was allowed to take everything from him, even his health,but God restored unto him it all, and even more so. Abraham went through this valley on his way to offer up his son Isaac in obedience to God. The Lord provided a ram instead as the sacrifice, a symbol of The sacrifice of Jesus Christ.Hagar and Ishmael went through this valley when Abraham sent them away. They almost died until God showed them where to find water.Moses went through this valley when he had to flee Egypt.David went through the valley fleeing from Saul, Spiritually I have been through this valley quite a number of times. How about you? Maybe you are going through the valley of Baca now? You can make it, if you find the well from God, Jesus and his Word,. The well is his Word.“He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)” (John 7: 38,39.“but whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” (John 4:14).
There are times in our lives,The Lord may lead us through
A lifeless, barren desert,A time of testing too
But desert times can be A place of special growth,
where God can do a work, And let His healing flow
I know that in these times, We don’t feel God is there,
We feel so very distant, And lost without His care
But God is there beside you, To bring you to a place
of cool, refreshing waters, Flowing with His grace
But for the present moment, You maybe in a drought,
Don’t give up on your faith, And don’t you start to doubt
God is always faithful ,And He will walk with you,
Through the darkest moments, He’ll be leading you.
Say this prayer if you want to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
