“I will – transform the Valley of Trouble into a gateway of hope.”
Hosea 2:15 (NLT)
We have our valleys of trouble don’t we. In this particular passage the troubles were self inflicted. How many times have we been the cause of our own troubles? And yet, God’s mercies are not shaken. His love for us does not stop! Instead, He turns our valley of trouble into a gateway of hope. What a beautiful metaphor. A gateway is an escape from trouble and a doorway to hope. Isn’t that how God works? He takes our smallest step toward escape and turns it into a journey of hope. Today, no matter what trouble you have, no matter how hopeless it seems, God wants to give you a way out. You may be in a deep, deep valley of trouble, but today God wants to turn it into a gateway of hope. Come and let Him transform your trouble.
Dear Father, You know the trouble I have. You have said that You would transform my valley of troubles into a gateway of hope. How I need that transformation. Work in my heart now, dear Lord. Show me the way, that I may follow it, and find the peace, joy and rest I have been looking for.
