Scripture Reading: Psalm 84:5-6 Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them. Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.
Reflections: The Psalmist envisions a person who is confronted by a valley called ‘Barca’ but transforms it into a well. The person, according to the Psalmist, is able to do so because he/she is blessed with strength from God. ‘Barca’, a Hebrew word, means ‘weeping’ and therefore represents an adverse condition. A well on the other hand is a place where water can be drawn and represents a source of restoration and satisfaction. The transition from ‘Barca’ into a ‘Well’ implies a turn around from a helpless condition to a restored and satisfying one. What this means is that you have power from God to transform your life from a helpless state to that of a condition that satisfies. You can make a change! Go ahead and make your ‘Barca’ a ‘well’!
Prayer: Oh Lord, I thank you for your power! By your power, let there be a turn around in my condition.
Confession: I have power from God to turn things around. I will not give up in life. Every Barca in my life is turning into a well.
