2 Corinthians 2:14 "Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ."
I hear people talk about being in the valley, and then on the mountain, and then back in the valley again. I wish I could say that I have never been in the Valley.This scripture says that God will cause us to triumph. We should always be on the mountaintop! We don't have to get down in the valley.
Oh, yes, there have been tests and trials, but we need to be on top of the mountain, shouting our way through it all, living above it. Praise God! You see, when we say we are in the valleys are looking at life from the natural standpoint - from the physical. We are trying to get a spiritual answer from the physical, and you just can't do that.
Get off the negative and get on the positive side of life and you won't have any valleys. You'll always be on the mountaintop!
Doing something special for someone will take your mind off yourself. Do something neat for someone today. See if you don't feel better.
Confession: Thanks be to God, who ALWAYS causes me to triumph in Christ! I ALWAYS triumph! I live on the mountaintop!
