The Valley and the Door

Psalms 23:4 says “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” The Hebrew word for valley is “Gay’” pronounced (gah’-ee) meaning a gorge, but it comes from another word “Gevah” pronounced (gay-vaw) meaning pride and arrogance. In this “valley” there is the shadow of death, calamity and pestilence, but you are not walking in fear but walking by faith. Remember you are “BY” faith! Christ is literally our faith. Paul says that he is our Hope, even our blessed Hope. Hosea 2:14-15 says “Therefore, behold, I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfortably unto her. And I will give her her vineyards from thence, and the valley of Achor for a door of hope: and she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth, and as in the day when she came up out of the land of Egypt.” Achor means a troubled place, but it is here that God is causing our valley to become a place of breakthrough, but not only a place of breakthrough, but a door where Hope is standing at the opening! So sing in the valley, because your song will cause a breakthrough!
