1 Samuel 6:1-7:17; Isaiah 48:1-22; 2 Corinthians 9:1-15

They came down from the mountain. Matthew 17:9

It’s great to be on the mountain top, but we cannot remain there.
The valley is filled with trouble and needs the help and power
of God. Life is made up of mountain and valley experiences, the
former preparing us for the latter. Glory and gloom are never far
apart. Some day there will be no gloom, but until that day let us
be faithful in bringing something of the glory of the mount to the
gloom of the valley. —W. Ross Rainey

Some golden daybreak Jesus will come;
Some golden daybreak, battles all won,
He’ll shout the victory, break through the blue,
Some golden daybreak, for me, for you.
—C. A. Blackmore
