“The Sovereign LORD is my strength; He makes my feet like the feet of a deer, He enables me to go on the heights.” Habakkuk 3:19
This morning I opened the curtains just as the sun was coming up. The movement startled a deer eating the seeds that had fallen from the bird feeder.
With remarkable agility, she sprang into action; white tail in the air, she gracefully bounded over the snow bank and bushes as if she had springs in her legs! It was beautiful to see.
This reminded me of a great statement in God’s word. Listen again to these encouraging words: “The Sovereign LORD is my strength; He makes my feet like the feet of a deer, He enables me to go on the heights.” (Habakkuk 3:19)
What a lovely word picture! With the Lord as our strength, we can have sure-footed confidence as we navigate the challenges and obstacles of today. He enables!
Lord God, You give amazing strength to keep me sure-footed in places and days that are difficult to navigate. Thank you for this promise of the strength of the Sovereign Lord enabling me to go to the heights. Thank you that I do not need to be hemmed in by today’s challenges. Thank you that You alone can enable me to move forward, to bound gracefully through this day. I praise Your name, and I ask this in the strong name of Jesus. Amen.
