When issues arise in society we often find these issues in the valleys. They are low points in our society.
The low points provide an opportunity for people to make decisions. Judgments if you will.
These decisions reveal how they view God's word and truth. Jesus teaches us that we will give an account for every "idle word" (Matthew 12:36) we speak. Each of us will stand before our Lord to give an account of how we stewarded our life on this earth at the judgment seat of Christ.
Today there are a lot of low points. One occurred yesterday. The Republican's during the last election had run on a promise to defund Planned Parenthood (Murderhood). Yet, when Senator Rand Paul presented his bill to do that, they voted "no," again. They missed another opportunity to keep their campaign promise. This decision reveals the priorities of their heart as there are some things more important to them than the "shedding of innocent blood" and keeping their word. That just created a valley of decision between the government, family and religious mountains. Click for The Hill's report on the Senate rejects Paul's effort to strip Planned Parenthood of federal funding.
Truly, it is a low point, A VERY LOW POINT! It is a "valley of decision" that reveals what's really in their heart and what they think about God and truth.
This situation was created in large part because God choose to play His "Trump" card in this last election. The life of the unborn was one of the major issues brought to the forefront during the election. God chose a vessel who would create many opportunities to reveal the hearts of men.
This is not the first time God has done this in history. In fact, it's a theme that's been played over and over. For example Jesus describes in Luke 7 how the Pharisees and the lawyers (religious & political spheres) failed to recognize the people God sent to represent His heavenly agenda.
The pattern is being repeated today and how we respond to each situation reveals the judgments we've made in our hearts towards God and His Truth. Jesus said in Luke 7:33...
Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision!
For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision.
