Deuteronomy 30 (July 2)

                                                                              From the Valley to Victory

             “…from there the Lord your God will gather you,”

            Have you ever felt alone and abandoned?

            Do you think that no one understands you and your “friends” reject you?

            Do you think there is no solution for your problems?

            Are you running from your troubles?

            If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, then you need to be reminded that there is a friendly HAND that never closes in your times of need; caring EYES that are always watching over you and me every day; and loving ARMS that will never cease to embrace us with infinite love.

            Wherever you are today; from there God will gather you.  It matters not if you are in the “Swamp of Sadness;” in the “Desert of Despair;” in the “Valley of Vanities”; in an “Abyss of Abandonment”; or in a “Storm of Suffering.”

            From all these horrible places the powerful hand of the Lord can and will rescue us, if we only reach out and take hold of it.  Peter was rescued by Jesus as he was drowning in the angry sea.

            “But I am not Peter, and so far no one has rescued me!”  I can almost hear someone saying.

            I say to you in the name of the Lord that God will surely bring you out of your misery.  I don’t know when and I don’t know how, but He will rescue your soul from the “prison” of depression and defeat in which you have placed yourself.  Call on Jesus, and be ready to grab his hand!
