Psalm 84:6 – Brook of Blessing #131

We have had rain since yesterday morning (and I don’t think it is supposed to stop anytime soon). I have mentioned this before, but I love the prophetic significance of rain. A downpour of babies is something we have been believing for our Moms in the Making group.

I love reading the Psalms and Psalm 84:6 really stood out to me on this same topic, “Even when their path winds through the dark valley of tears, They dig deep to find a pleasant pool where others find only pain. He gives to them a brook of blessing, Filled from the rain of an outpouring.”

The valley or “path” reference in this verse is the Valley of Baca. Baca means “weeping”. So although the people in this Psalm wept their way through the valley which was desolate and barren, they didn’t stay there. In the NIV version it says they “passed through”. And after leaving, they entered a place of springs and pools.

You too might be facing trials, but they are not going to last forever. Often before God blesses His children, He takes them through barren valleys. But, when you choose to “dig deep” while facing barrenness (whether physically like me or spiritually, mentally, financially, etc), He will remove you from your valley and bring you a “brook of blessing”. He always has an outpour of blessings waiting for you.

As verse 7 says, you will grow “stronger and stronger with ever step forward.” I hope that encourages you today. God intends to make you strong and He has a large blessing waiting for you on the other side of your trial. Don’t give up now!

    I now have a new perspective on rain & downpours! I will be believing this with you and with your group as well. Thank you for this very encouraging post! I hope you had an amazing weekend. Congrats on your triathlon!

    I love this! The people wept their way through the valley, but they didn’t stay there. After leaving they entered a place of springs and pools. I know when you’re in that valley it feels like you will be there forever! Seasons come and go and you are still weeping. You still ache for a child. To be called mommy. For those of you longing for that, even though it feels like you will be stuck forever, God can lead you through the barren places. He is with you. I walked in that place for 6 years. He did bring me out. You have to drink from the Living Water (Jesus) to get you through. Praying for every woman who struggles with infertility.

    Thank you for this today! It’s hard to focus on the blessing at the end of the valley but I know its there! I trust the Lord!

    Amen, Amen, Amen! I love how the hope you share is referenced by Psalm 84:6! I love how you say, ” although the people in this Psalm wept their way through the valley which was desolate and barren, they didn’t stay there.”!! Such awesome advice to be assured there will be a rainbow after the rain! I remember yearning to be a mom more than anything. I held tight to my faith and never ceased asking – and now I am a mom and I’m asking the Lord again – please give us another child. I know He will! Blessings to you!!!

    The valleys build strength when we seek Him in our barrenness for sure! What a great encouragement to stay positive!

    He is with us in the valleys, He takes us up to the highest mountains, He is with us for every step of the way and it’s such a peaceful feeling to know that we are NEVER alone, even in the darkest days, He is with us!

    One of my favorite sayings says that without great rain there can be no great growth. 🙂 So true in our lives as well. Everything that I have gone through and experienced has brought me out a better, stronger person!

    I love how in the Book of James, God tells us what the purposes of trials are – to perfect us in patience, to make us perfect. Whole, complete, lacking nothing. He indeed wants His girls to be strong, as you’ve pointed out here your post. May God bless you.

    I love the imagery of digging deep. It’s easy to think “I just have to get through this valley” and fail to lean into God to sustain you as you go through the valley. But digging deep with him will not only help you pass through the valley, but come out on the other side a new and stronger person.

    Beautiful imagery there–outpouring and raining of babies. 🙂 You are blessed already by his love, may you see it in a child soon, my friend. 🙂

    God does intend to make us strong–even when we don’t want to be! God is good.

    This psalm is not just a very beautiful psalm but signifies abundance after lack. May God poor down that abundance on you in due time.

    This is such a wonderful reminder about not giving up! We have to keep pushing through so we can see what the Lord has for us on the other side!
