In Habakkuk 3, people were going through a time when everything in their lives seemed to be going wrong. You may be thinking, I can relate! Perhaps you are having problems in several areas: with your children, in your marriage, at work, or with your finances. Maybe you have health concerns.
We all go through seasons when we seem to have more trouble than usual, and these struggles in your life can be the “high places” mentioned in today’s Scripture—places of trouble and suffering.
God says He will give us “hinds’ feet” for the high places in our lives. A hind is a mountain goat that can leap about freely on rocky, precarious slopes. These animals can navigate what others cannot because of the way God has designed them.
Be encouraged today because God has designed you to leap over your troubles too—not in your own abilities, but because He is your strength. He will sustain you and provide a way out of the challenges for you.
Depression, despair, and discouragement are from the enemy and they will weaken you. Even if you cannot find something to rejoice over, you can rejoice in your relationship with the Lord. When you love God and trust in Him, He enables you to keep on walking forward.
Love God Today: “Thank You, Lord, for giving me ‘hinds’ feet’ when I’m on slippery slopes.”
