Just Walking Through
Did David say, “I walked into the valley of the shadow of death and I went down to the bottom and got stuck in the muck”? Not at all. David said, “Yea though I walk through” (Ps.23:4). He did not have a pup tent and a backpack and a canteen and ready himself to stay there and grab a root and grunt. Rather, he said, “Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death. And while I am walking through there I am dealing with the shadow of death”. David was talking about a demonic entity. If anybody walked through the valley of the shadow of death at least once or twice it was David. Part of what he dealt with while walking through was the fact that it was a low place. But the word we hold to, the word we confess is about going ahead and pressing on through because you have the power, you have the strength, you have the grace (the enablement) to press through and when you have pressed through you are pressing through unto… Unto that which Father has been wanting to get us to for our deliverance.
