The Lord God is my strength [my source of courage, my invincible army]; He has made my feet [steady and sure] like hinds’ feet and makes me walk [forward with spiritual confidence] on my high places [of challenge and responsibility].
Habakkuk 3:19 (NKJV)
No matter what we face in life, God is our ‘Strength’. He is our source of courage, He is too powerful to be defeated, because of that we too cannot be defeated. He guards us with strength, He steadies us in our walk, He makes our feet like hinds’ feet, so that we can be steadier and more confident in our walk. We can then walk forward with spiritual confidence on the high places of life, the steep, mountainous places of challenge, struggle, responsibility, and on the rocky places where we can lose our footing and stumble. He is there strengthening us as we walk with Him. He strengthens our feet with each step we take as we walk through those difficult and rough patches. We can have confidence in Him!
Those difficult places of challenge and struggle only deepen our relationship with God, so we should never run from them. It is necessary to go through them, and we can go through them when we keep our eyes on the good Shepherd and continue walking with Him. He has promised us that He will walk with us and steady us as we do. He is fully trustworthy! You are kitted for the job.
So, today, if you are facing a rocky mountain or if you are already making your way up its steep cliffs, remember that God is with you with each step you take. Keep holding onto Him and keep taking steps—walking forward with spiritual confidence in your heavenly Father.
My declaration and confession: The Sovereign Lord equips me with strength. I am sure-footed as a deer and I climb every mountain.
Ignite Thought: We are equipped for every challenge visible or invisible
