Joel 3:14 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

Joel 3:14

Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision. 


I’m not sure how many a multitude is, but I feel like it’s repeated twice here to show that it’s a lot of people!! When I was in prison, my mom sent me this verse and a dream she had. Her dream was this: “There was a place with people lined up as far as the eye could see, and these people were standing in darkness. All they had to do was take one step forward and be in the light, but they didn’t know how to or didn’t know that was an option.” 


That has stuck with me since then and speaks to me now. We are living in that time, and people are craving the love, forgiveness, and relief that comes with knowing Jesus! But they don’t know how to get there or where to go. It’s time for us to break the stereotype of the Church and lead these people to Jesus! We need to show these people the Church is not some stuffy, perfect, judgmental place but a refuge for sinners saved by grace!!


The more real and honest we are with each other, the more God’s power and love shine through!! I feel like today, more than ever, this verse is playing out before us, and to me, it’s a cry to rally the troops and get to work!! There may be multitudes in the valley but it starts with 1.


I love you all, God bless, and Glory to God!!!
