The Word Works!
He is Jehovah-shalom of Judges 6:24, Who is my cure, wholeness, and peace. He is Jehovah El Elyon of Psalm 83:18, Who is the Most High God Who is over all the earth. He is Jehovah-Sabaoth,, the Lord of armies. He is El Shaddai, the All Sufficient One and the great I Am, that I Am. He is with me!
How then can I fear? My rendition of Psalm 23:4 reads this way: “Yes, though I walk through the apparently inescapable valley of calamity even the shadow of death, I will not be afraid of, nor will I dread any adversity, affliction, calamity, distress or grievous situation or circumstance sent by the evil one: for Thou, the LORD, are always with me; Your rod (Branch, scepter, tribe), as is Your staff (support and sustenance), they comfort (ease) me.”
Whether we are on the mountain top or we are in the valley; God is the same. He changes not. What we must learn to do is speak mountain top words. Speak to the things that are not as though they were. Dead dreams, slaughtered hopes, devastated plans, all will come alive if our words are words we received and spoke on the mountain tops.
The dream of God seemed hopelessly lost. But, take a look at what God had Ezekiel do: ” And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God, thou knowest. Again he said unto me, Prophesy … hear the word of the Lord. … ye shall know that I am the Lord … I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise … Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say … So I prophesied as he commanded me …” Eze. 37:3-10
Speak, Prophesy, Say and see the valleys be filled with the goodness of God.
Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth; Luke 3:5 (KJV)
