Valleys and Mountaintops

Encouraging Words with Pastor Bruce & Suzi Elman

GOD allowed the Israelites to wander in the wilderness so long to teach them that man does not live by bread alone (worldly things) but by His promises!

See, GOD met their basic needs (manna), but they were a long way from having their desires fulfilled!

GOD wants to teach us like the Israelites that our true life is in Him and not in worldly things. 

He allows us to go through trials so we can learn that doing things His way is the best way! 

If we do not serve and worship Him in hard times (valleys), we won’t in good times (mountaintops)! 

He wants to bless us with our desires, but He demands first place in our lives at all times!

Deut. 8:3

So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger and fed you with manna, which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone, but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord.

Whether you are in a valley or on a mountaintop, in want or all your needs are met, worship the Lord! 

Keep GOD first in your life, and you will be amazed at what He will do for you.

Love & Blessings,

Bruce and Suzi Elman
