The Key To Avoiding Spiritual Peaks and Valleys
July 2, 2013
“Every valley shall be lifted up,
and every mountain and hill be made low;
the uneven ground shall become level,
and the rough places a plain.”
I was never much of a builder, but one thing I loved to do when I was young was to build Soap Box Derby cars. If you’re not familiar with Soap Box Derby races, you put your car at the top of a hill, get someone to give you a shove, and try to make it down the hill first.
Gradually, you begin slowing down until you come to a complete stop. And if you want to go again, you have to take your car back up the hill and have someone give you a shove again. You can go as long as you want, but you have to keep starting over.
I know many Christians who are like that in their spiritual lives. As long as someone is there to drag them back to the top of the hill and give them a push, they’re doing just fine. They go from one seminar or conference to the next emotional high. They live their Christian lives from experience to experience.
God’s desire for us, however, is that we’d walk with Him daily. He wants us to allow Him to fill our emotional cup – rather than some event. So spend time with Him daily, walking with Him every minute of your day. When you have constant fellowship with God, you’ll be less likely to fall into spiritual valleys after coming off the peaks.
AVOID SPIRITUAL PEAKS AND VALLEYS BY WALKING CONSTANTLY WITH GOD AND ALLOWING HIM TO FILL YOUR CUP DAILY.

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013
While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.
That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.
This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”
The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.
