A Glory Seed Devotional
The Valley of Divine Peace…
“Everyone who trusts the LORD is like Mount Zion that cannot be shaken and will stand forever. Just as Jerusalem is protected by mountains on every side, the LORD protects his people by holding them in his arms now and forever.” (Psalms 125:1-2 CEV)
This morning when I read today’s scripture in my imagination I immediately found myself driving through Cades Cove which is in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. When you drive deep into the cove get out and look around you will find yourself surrounded by mountains on all sides. When Patti and I vacation in Townsend, Tennessee we make a daily drive through the cove and each time we feel protected from the outside world yet at the same time because other people are there we are not isolated from it.
While in Cades Cove all who enter are protected and with the protection of the mountains come peace. While in the Valley of Divine Peace all who enter are protected and with the protection of the mountains come Divine Peace.
Those who put their trust in the LORD will always reside in the Valley of Divine Peace. Because the Valley is surrounded by mountains on all sides there is protection from “killer storms”. Yet at the LORD’s good judgment storms will come and go leaving in their absence the potential for flooding creating havoc in their wake. But in the Valley of Divine Peace is God’s River where waters from the storms are converted into resources for life by the Holy Spirit and excess water flows out of the Valley.
There is Peace in the Valley! Come one come all trust in the LORD come into the Valley of Divine Peace, come be present with the LORD!
Believe it! Experience it!
Grace and PEACE,
