Down in the Valley

Adrian Rogers

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me …” – Psalm 23:4

Until the fourth verse in this psalm, David has been talking about the Lord. “The Lord is my Shepherd. He maketh me to lie down. He leadeth me. He restoreth my soul.” But now when he’s in the valley, he’s no longer talking about the Lord—he’s talking to Him. “Thou art with me…. Thy rod, Thy staff…”

Nothing will bring you face to face with God more than the dark valleys of life. But when you get in the dark valleys, you’re going to know what Jesus meant when He said, “I will never leave thee or forsake thee,” and, “I will be with thee always, even to the end of the age.”

Is the Lord your Shepherd? Here’s how to find out. Ask yourself: “Is the Shepherd my Lord?” You see, the only way you can say “The Lord is my Shepherd” is to be able to say, “The Shepherd is my Lord.” Not everyone can recite Psalm 23 and claim it for their own. It belongs to those who’ve found a personal relationship with the Lord—a personal, permanent, protected relationship that will endure for all eternity.
