GOD, the Lord, is my strength; he makes my feet like the deer’s; he makes me tread on my high places. Habakkuk 3:19
Deer have feet that help them run.
So fast, you think they’re flying!
It’s hard to see them, they jump so high!
And if you try, you’ll be sighing!
Deer have feet that help them stand
On a rock that’s slick as glass.
God made them able to stand up tall
To smell an enemy treading pass.
God has made us like the deer.
We may not run quite as fast.
But He has given us strength to stand
On a love that will always last.
He gives us feet that are steady and sure;
Feet than can run life’s race.
It’s His strength that helps us move along
And keep up the “good-hearted” pace.
Like a deer he’s made us strong,
Much stronger than four-footed deer.
For He has taught us to lean on Him–
To trust and never fear!
Fun Fact: There are 38 species of deer!
Questions: What are the ways that you are like a deer? Do you trust that God will help you not to be afraid?
