“Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.”
(Psalm 23, NKJV).
“The valley of the shadow of death” can be understood as
big things in the life like difficult jobs or difficult relations.
However, “the valley of the shadow of death” can also be understood as small things
like a dark street with few people and houses,
or a graveyard, or a sickness, or a cockroach…
Because most of people often think about only big things,
they often ask God to help in their big things.
For the small things, they forget God.
Although they fear when they walk through a dark street, or a graveyard, or a sickness, or a cockroach…,
they don’t ask for God’s help.
“The valley of the shadow of death” is a test.
If we trust God,
although we walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
we will not fear.
If we fear,
if we are worried,
we don’t trust God.
If we don’t do small things, how can we do big things?
If we don’t trust God in small things,
how can we trust God in big things?
Moreover, to God, all things are the same,
and all things are small.
So we should ask God in all things, especially small things.
Your words are wise.
Thank you, Jesus.
