Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision; for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.”  [Joel 3:14]

There was a time in my younger days when if something went wrong or negative things began to take place I thought surely I was going in the wrong direction, I’d taken the wrong turn, I hadn’t heard the Lord or there must be sin in my life!

A thought that actually reflects a belief system that the blessing of God and the Goodness of God is never found in the negative aspects of this world…how wrong…it is only the response to negative things that will either push you toward the presence of God or pull you away from the presence of God—and the presence is the Blessing!   You choose…life is a valley filled with one primary and daily decision—‘who is number One?”

So how can you evaluate, what are the clues to what is taking place in your life and hindering you from abiding in the Blessing of His presence?

Are you using your life experiences to delve deeper into knowing Him or has your relationship slipped—are your devotions overshadowed by the ‘doing of things’?

Are there broken or troubled places in your relationships?—this is a clue to the health of your relationship to your heavenly Father.

If anything the further I journey the more often the negative attempts to slow me down but response to the heavenly presence simply uses every situation to reveal His glory.

Turn to Him and remember this–” …our light, momentary affliction this slight distress of the passing hour is ever more and more abundantly preparing and producing and achieving for us an everlasting weight of glory beyond all measure, excessively surpassing all comparisons and all calculations, a vast and transcendent glory and blessedness never to cease!”  [2 Corinthians 4:17 AMP]
