The Valley… He’s There Too!

The Valley… He’s There Too!

Psalm 23 Psalm 23:1 A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

Psalm 23:2 He lets me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside quiet waters.

Psalm 23:3 He restores my soul;
He guides me in the paths of righteousness
For the sake of His name.

Psalm 23:4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

Psalm 23:5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You have anointed my head with oil;
My cup overflows.

Psalm 23:6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

 There is always a valley between two mountains. Before each mountain top experience comes a walk down below. Some can live on the mountain top with the Lord for extended periods of time but some cannot for some reason or another.

We reach the mountain top, live there a while but then comes a wind of defeat or a wind of discouragement and the wind blows us right down to the bottom of the mountain again.

Some valleys are wide, some are narrow. Some are on rough ground and some on smooth ground. Most suicides occur there and most marriages break up while one or both mates are there.

I know I am talking to several today who are there and some people live there most of the time. It may be because of physical reasons, emotional reasons, or spiritual reasons. Whatever the reason, too many of us have an address in the valley.

If you are going to be successful in climbing the mountain, then you must recognize what’s in the valley.

I. God is There.

(v.4) “…for thou art with me.”

  • The only way God can speak to some of us is in the valley. Some Christians get high up the mountain and their ears get stopped up and they can’t hear God speak. Some get so high in the mountains that they get in the fog and can’t see spiritually.
  • There is a different living standard there. The same vegetation doesn’t grow there as it does on the mountain top. Sometimes the only way to get the right spiritual diet is to go to the valley. God may have to take us down there in order to take us up to the mountain top.

II. Ground Zero is There. (v.4) “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death…”

In the early days of the automobile, the driver had to get a long run at the next hill in order to get up and over the mountain top. I had a Volkswagen that was like that. We’ve had a church bus or two that was like that, haven’t we?

  • The valley is the ground floor for success.
  • It is the only access to the mountain.
  • It is where the elevator is. If you enter the elevator at the top, the only direction is down. Maybe you know a high school student, a college student, a mom, a dad, a teacher, a married couple, or someone else who is in the valley and can’t seem to get out. Maybe you know someone who is considering throwing in the towel. Maybe you know someone who can’t seem to get a handle on their relationships. If it is you, get on the elevator. If it is someone you know, help them get on the elevator because it is about ready to leave the launching pad and the mountain top is the first stop.

III. Grappling is There. (v.4) “thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”

Jeremiah 2:23 “How can you say, ‘I am not defiled,
I have not gone after the Baals’?
Look at your way in the valley!
Know what you have done!
You are a swift young camel running about senselessly on her ways;

Jeremiah 49:4 How you boast about the valleys!
Your valley is flowing away,
You backsliding daughter
Who trusts in her treasures, saying,
‘Who can come against me?’

Joel 3:14 Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.

This place is always a place of decision. Am I going to stay here or am I going to climb the mountain? We must grapple with our decisions and trust the Lord so we can make the right choice. There is a battle between the flesh and the spirit. Will I make the decision to stay in the world or climb the mountain to spiritual attainment? Will I trust myself or the Lord? Will I depend on my strength or the rod and staff of the Lord?

  • The only reason for staying in the valley is that you don’t make a decision to get out.
  • Most successful people made life-changing decisions while in the valley. Sam Jones was a drunkard in the pits of the saloon and accepted Christ and made the decision to climb the mountain and he became a great preacher. The prodigal son said, “I will arise and climb the mountain back home!” One preacher was offered a lot of money if he would get rid of his bus ministry and the snotty-nosed kids and the preacher chose the kids over the millionaire.

IV. Grace is There. (v.5-6) Psalm 23:5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
you have anointed my head with oil;
My cup overflows.

Psalm 23:6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

  • Luke 3:5, “Every valley shall be filled, every mountain and hill shall be brought low.” That means that the mountain is accessible to all who trust the Lord and start climbing.
  • Romans 8:28, “All things work together for good to them who love God.”

 What about it? Are you going to stay in the valley for the rest of your life? You don’t need to. Why don’t you get out today? Why don’t you decide to start climbing the mountain today?

We are here for you at; On The Road For Christ and we’ll help you get through whatever is going on in your life… just contact us and let’s get started. Here’s a couple of easy ways to reach us; email- .. phone- (907) 315-3394 or in the comment section of this blog.

A big part of our ministry is music, so I thought I give you the lyrics to a song to help lift your spirits.

Song: “I Heard Footsteps”

Talkin’ bout the mountains;
I’ve climbed them,
Felt the sunshine on my shoulders.
Felt the warm winds blow.

Talkin’ bout the valleys,
I’ve been there.
Had my world to crumble down.
Felt the teardrops flow.

And I heard footsteps,
Walkin’ in the shadows.
And a hand reaching out
To tell me He was there.

Until next we meet again I’ll leave you with this Prayer:

Heavenly Father, we thank you for always being there and taking care of us, who love you so much. We ask for forgiveness and mercy in our daily walk with you and we realize without you we are lost and will surely remain in the valley.

Father, we need your help, our country needs your help. Some of us feel forgotten and alone without any help to fight back against what our country is doing, we fear for our freedom and way of life. We pray for Godly intervention. Lord, you can bring to justice all involved in the attempt to destroy our democracy and bring us back to a Godly nation. 

Lord Jesus, I pray you will show yourself and satan will flee and all your enemies will be revealed and justice will be administered.

I pray healing and love come over our land, as well as a worldwide awakening recognizing you as the Lord and Saviour of the universe. You are the answer … the only answer.

In Jesus name, we pray,


Here It Is… The Truth!




I love all of you in Christ Jesus. I pray that all of God’s children would read this and find solace in what I’ve been trying to pass to them what the Lord has been telling me all along. (Read the message before this one.) Of course, there will still be naysayers but remember what I’ve been teaching … Fear is the opposite of faith. Do you trust God or not? That has a yes or no answer, no middle of the road, Revelation 3:16. Carefully read what was released today from the same people who lied to you in the first place;


The number of reported COVID-19 infections has plummeted 40% in the United States in just one week and 30% worldwide in the past three weeks.

And the primary reason is not the distribution of vaccines, contend, experts, who point out that only 8% of Americans and 13% of people worldwide have received their first dose, reported.


A New York Times COVID-19 case tracker indicated cases in the U.S. were down 30% from just last week, according to Marketwatch. Statistics from Johns Hopkins show the nation’s seven-day rolling average is down 40%.

Daily cases have dropped 45% since the latest peak on Jan. 11, according to data from the COVID-19 Tracking Project.


The World Health Organization said Monday its World in Data graphs show the daily infection rate has fallen by 30% over the past three weeks.

Some public health experts told it’s possible that more people contracted the virus than previously thought, and some regions could be experiencing herd immunity.

Many epidemiologists have noted the coronavirus, in a second wave, is following the bell-shaped pattern of epidemics predicted by Farr’s Law in 1840, regardless of mitigation efforts.

Further, in January, the World Health Organization officially acknowledged that the “gold standard” test used to diagnose COVID-19 has a high rate of false-positives that make it unreliable.

Bottom of Form

In a July podcast that resurfaced in December, Dr. Anthony Fauci admitted the widely used PCR tests pick up harmless fragments of the coronavirus, resulting in many false-positive cases that result in overstating the threat. In August, the New York Times examined PCR testing data in three states and found “up to 90 percent of people testing positive carried barely any virus.”

In an advisory to lab workers issued Jan. 13, the WHO recommended a second test to confirm any diagnosis for people who aren’t showing any symptoms of the disease.

“Where test results do not correspond with the clinical presentation, a new specimen should be taken,” the guidance says.

The WHO warns that most PCR tests “are indicated as an aid for diagnosis,” meaning health care providers should consider at least seven other factors to confirm any test.

WND reported in December an external peer review concluded a major paper supporting the PCR test for COVID-19 has 10 “serious flaws,” resulting in many false-positive cases.

A briefing published by four British scientists concluded PCR testing is “distorting policy and creating the illusion that we are in a serious pandemic when in fact we are not.”

“A false positive pseudo-epidemic is a well-described phenomenon in the medical literature which results in an exponential rise in diagnosed cases and deaths but no excess deaths,” the British researchers write.

Until the next time we get together … KEEP LOOKING UP!


My prayer for you; Praying Hands

Father, what a rollercoaster ride we’ve been on, if it wasn’t for You we’d be surely lost. In this time of scare tactics, the evil one is using we thank you for the TRUTH and give you all the praise and glory.

We thank you for holding us in the palm of your hand and loving us so much. I pray you continue to bring the truth to light and the evil ones would get the punishment they deserve.

I also pray for you to heal our land and open the eyes of non-believers and bring our country back in line with your word, protect the unborn, heal the sick, and use in a mighty way to help build your kingdom…

In Jesus name, we pray,












FEAR… Get Over It!



“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9.

Forty years of wanderings in the wilderness are finally over! But, Moses the man who brought the children of Israel out of Egypt is dead. Now, it is time for Joshua to take the staff. He is named as Moses’ successor, and the time has come for Israel to cross the Jordan River and take possession of their Promised Land. If they could get over this one last obstacle, they would finally be home. On the other side of Jordan is a land flowing with milk and honey, the fulfillment of all dreams. But standing at the edge of the River and not knowing what lurks ahead, Joshua became fearful. And he had every reason to be afraid! Canaan was occupied by giants! The cities to be captured were fortified. And yet the Lord tells Joshua, in Chapter 1, Verse 6, “Be strong and of good courage.” Meaning, to succeed in his new assignment, Joshua needs to overcome fear. God tells him this again and again. Indeed, He wasn’t “asking,” “requesting” or “suggesting” to Joshua not to fear. God was issuing a command!

“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you.” Isaiah 43:2.

As we stand at the start of the year 2021, God’s telling us not to fear. As we are embarking upon a new path that we’ve never been to, there is a danger that we too can become anxious and fearful. But God has given us a sound mind! We are exhorted to be strong and courageous! God’s given us power so we can overcome every obstacle, and He’s given us love. “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7. So there is no reason for a child of God to be gripped, controlled, paralyzed, and destroyed by fear. The Almighty tells us not to fear because He is in control of every situation. He is our refuge and strength! God is our help in times of trouble. So we don’t have anything to fear! God will be with us. He knows our name and knows what we are going through, so we don’t have to be fearful of the unknown. We can face the future fearlessly.

“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10.

Have you ever been afraid? What do you fear? What is weighing heavy on your heart? Like Joshua, we all face fear! Is it of height, of failing, or of how things will turn out? Do you fear criticism? Some fear poverty, old age, or the prospect of separation or divorce. We worry about the future, about politics, and our health. Fear is a human emotion. It can make a grown man squeal like a child. Fear often results in depression. It stops your spiritual life. Fear paralyzes. It freezes. Sometimes it can rob us of quality of life, or lead us to make bad decisions. Fear will cripple even the strongest. It can prevent us from moving forward to receive all that God has for us. Fear is a torment! Fear brings turmoil in our hearts and minds. When we are filled with so much fear, we can’t think straight. The only time fear is mentioned in a positive light in the Bible is when it refers to reverence for God. Fear is everywhere! Everywhere we turn we hear the voice of fear. The media industry fills our ears with the noise of unemployment, murders, and a failing economy. The doctor’s report flood our ears with cancer, HIV/AIDS, heart attacks, tumors, COVID-19, etc. Friends and family speak their fears into our lives and it weakens our faith. “Fear, and the pit, and the snare, are upon thee, O inhabitant of the earth.” Isaiah 24:17. Still, we don’t have to listen to those noises. We don’t have to agree with them. And we don’t have to line up ourselves with them. “For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.” I John 5:4. Therefore, we can overcome these noises of fear by our faith. Even though we hear these noises every day doesn’t mean we have to be afraid. Faith will silence these noises as soon as we activate our faith.

“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.” Ephesians 6:10.

According to Strong’s Bible Concordance, the Hebrew word for courage means: “to be strong, alert, courageous, brave, bold, solid, hard; to be determined, to make oneself alert, strengthen oneself, confirm oneself, persist in, or prove superior to” Courage is not the absence of fear, it’s acting in faith in the midst of fear! Meaning courage is having the strength to do something despite being fearful. Hence, to be courageous means having the confidence to do what God wants them to do. Three times, the Lord told Joshua to be strong and of good courage. He also gives us the same promises He gave to Joshua today. “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5. Whatever challenge we face in this life, God is with us! We can be assured that He won’t let us down. There may be an obstacle in front of us today, but God will part it. There may be opposition in the year ahead, but God will give us victory over it. Our role is to trust Him completely and genuinely. God will never leave us.


“And He said, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Exodus 33:14.

The secret of Joshua’s strength, courage, and fearlessness in the presence of God. And the assurance of this divine presence also applies to all who are in Christ today. The night before His death, Jesus told His disciples in John 14:16: “I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever.” Even in His last words on earth, He promises to be with us. “18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen..” Matthew 28:18-20. No matter what is going on in your life, Jesus is there with you. By abiding in His presence, we will be given the strength to overcome.

Here are some directions to follow and important things to always remember;

  1. Know who you are. When you put your faith in Jesus and became His follower, you are adopted into God’s family and became one of His children. You’re now a child of God! The Holy Spirit is in you. The same Spirit that raised Jesus Christ from the dead is in you. Nothing will come your way in the next few days, weeks, months, or years, that should trouble you. You’re precious in God’s eyes! He’ll give you the power you need to be victorious.
  2. Let go of the past. “Forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus” Philippians 3:13-14.
  3. Refuse to focus on your fear. Guard your eyes and ears. Don’t let your fear continuously rob you of joy.
  4. Don’t let it paralyze you.
  5. Realize that God is with you. We must not fear because God is with us. “The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” Psalms 118:6. If God protects you from all forms of danger, why should you fear?
  6. Pray always. “I sought the Lord, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.” Psalms 34:4. When we seek God with all our hearts, He will hear us and deliver us from all our fears.
  7. Confront your fear. You will never win until you rise and confront the thing that is causing you to fear.
  8. Trust in God. Every time we are afraid, we must see it as an opportunity to surrender everything in God’s hands. Trust that He will provide all that you need. God is still good. He is still faithful. He will never leave you.
  9. Remember what God has done in the past.
  10. Meditate upon the Word of God daily. The Hebrew word for meditate means: “utter, muse, mutter, meditate, speak.” It comes from a root word that means whisper. We should not only ponder and think about the Word of God but speak it out even in a whisper. The Word of God is powerful.
  11. Be filled with love. “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.” I John 4:18. When love prevails, fear stops from existing.
  12. Fear God. Every Christian should have this fear.

“Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.” John 15:4.

God is longing to pour out His favor and blessing upon us in the coming year. He has an amazing plan for us. Plans that are so extraordinary that you can’t even begin to dream about. The wilderness is not where He wants His children to be. The place of fear is not where He wants us to reside. God doesn’t want us to be held back by fear. So move into your place of abundance. You’re not alone! God’s with you. He will not leave your side. God cares for you; He will never forget you. He watches over the sparrows and He watches over you. Troubles will come, but God never stops loving you. If He remembers each sparrow, you can be sure He remembers you too.

25 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? ” Matthew 6:25-27.

Today, you can overcome the spirit of fear and express your faith in Christ Jesus by saying this prayer: 


O LORD, I come to You now. I know I am a sinner, forgive me. Lord Jesus, from today, I accept You as the LORD of my life. Change my heart from a disobedient heart to a heart that will obey You. With my new heart, I believe that it is because of me that You came into this world; You died for my sins, take away my problems, fill me with Your Holy Spirit, write my name in the Book of Life, and make me brand new in Jesus name.


  1. Father, I thank You that You’re always with me.
  2. O Lord, help me to remember Your promises and to trust in You whenever I’m afraid, in Jesus’ name.
  3. Lead me, Lord, through the unknown in my life. Make Your path clear to me, in Jesus’ name.
  4. Father, I lift my fears, worries, and concerns to You today. Help me to keep moving forward, in Jesus’ name.
  5. Heavenly Father, thank You for Your promise to be with me wherever I go.

God is your Father and loves beyond your wildest imagination …

Talk to Him … He’s listening!

I pray you receive this message and you focus your life on the one, true living God, Jesus Christ.

Until next time … Many Blessings and  “Keep Looking Up!”
