If You can do anything, have compassion on us and help us —Mark 9:22
God is God regardless of how I feel or where I are in life.It doesn’t take long though for the “other” reality to set in after a great spiritual experience and I can find myself wondering if there is a God at all. Leaving the mountain for the valley is never an easy thing but it is a necessary thing. On the mountain my faith becomes real but in the valley my faithfulness becomes real.
At any given moment I could rise to the occasion and do something of great value and worth if I felt like it was incumbent upon me to do so but being a follower of Jesus is not about a spotlight momentary heroism. Instead following Jesus is about dying to myself daily in the mundane where others rarely see.
The valley brings out everything I really know about God. It’s not only where my character is developed but where I learn God’s character as well. I may find it tempting to question God in the valley and therein lies the problem. God wants me to develop such a relationship with Him that regardless of the mountain or the valley my relationship and trust in Him remains the same.
