Of the many valleys in life, death is the deepest and most dreadful. One out of every one person will walk through this lonesome valley. David confirms and offers hope: “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me” (Psalm 23:4 NASB). Death is an “even though” reality, not an “if or maybe” event. Green pastures DO turn into gray deserted valleys. But the God who is with us in our valleys of death will also be with us during our other tragedies of life. In the lion’s den, we’ll be safe. In the fiery furnace, we won’t be burned. In the deep waters, we shall not drown. And in life’s journey, we shall walk THROUGH the valley. Emmanuel!—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
