SURE FOOTED AND SAFE
Scriptures For Meditation — Habakkuk 3:19; Phil 2:9-11; Eph 2:4-6
We have talked about two kinds of high places in the past two days — the high places from where demonic altars and powers of darkness operate, and the High Place were the Lord God almighty is seated on His Throne in majesty above the heavens.
Today we’ll be looking at another high places that the bible talks about in Habakkuk 3:19 —
The LORD God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places.
This verse of scripture short as it is, powerfully captures a statement of faith by prophet Habakkuk, who had in the preceding two verses spoken a declaration of his trust in God, even in spite of contrary situations. Here, he tells us the reason for his unshaken confidence in God —
1. The Lord God is my strength.
This is an acknowledgment of Jehovah as the Source of His sustenance. Even if the harvest were to fail and the storehouse were to be empty, he was confident that his sustenance will not be determined by these things, as Jehovah would take care of Him and uphold him.
2. He will make my feet like hind’s feet.
Hinds (deers) are gifted with sure-footed ness as they navigate the rocky terrains of the mountainous heights that other animals can’t reach.
The Hind is a very graceful animal that glides through rocky obstacles effortlessly and purposefully. Habakkuk was declaring here that God would make his feet suitable for both the task and the terrain he has to pass through.
3. He will make me walk upon my high places.
As the deer bounds up those hills, due to its purposely adapted feet, it is secure and safe because it’s adversaries are unable to pursue it onto the heights that it can reach.
Friend, there’s a high place in Christ that God has prepared for you. A place where the enemy cannot follow you into. It is a place of security, promotion and advancement; it is a place of victory and a place of Holiness. And you will get there in Jesus’s Name because God has prepared you specially to fulfill your purpose and bring glory to His Name.

Let’s also make the declarations that Habakkuk made in this text. He is your strength and your buckler.
Ask him to make you sure footed as you navigate the path that He has ordained for you to walk in.
Pray that He will take you far above the reach or sight of the enemy and cause you to walk upon your high places as He has written concerning your life.
