II Chronicles 20:26 ” On the fourth day they assembled in the Valley of Beracah, where they praised the Lord. This is why it is called the Valley of Beracah to this day.”

King Jehoshaphat and the people of Judah were desperate.  Enemy armies were fast approaching and they didn’t know what to do.  They found themselves in a dark valley of desperation, discouragement, and fear with no way out…but they resolved to trust God.  And it’s in that same valley that God worked a mighty miracle…giving them victory over their enemies.  That valley of their suffering was changed into the Valley of Beracah…the Valley of Praise.   With God’s help,  we can grow during those hard times.  Our faith can increase and be strengthened in the midst of turmoil, loss, and strife…if we trust God.  It’s then that our valley of the shadow of death can also become a Valley of Praise.
