The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to tread on the heights. For the director of music. On my stringed instruments.

Habakkuk 3:19 NIV

The sovereign Lord is my strength.  The Lord is the strength of our lives.  He is the one who holds all things together by His mighty power.  He holds our very breath and moment in His hands.  So many times we allow our hearts to get focused on circumstances that are nothing compared to the God that we serve.  The Lord desires that we would cry out to Him and ask Him to move according to His will.

He makes my feet like the feet of a deer, He enables me to tread on the heights.  It is the Lord who enables us to do the impossible.  In a world filled with darkness, wickedness, and deception, it can seem that things are in chaos and out of control.  It can seem that it is impossible for the advancement of God’s kingdom.  But these are simple deceptions of the enemy.  The Lord desires that we would come to know His word and His heart.  That our prayers would be shaped by His character and His love.  Because we know with Him that nothing is impossible.

Habakkuk 3:19: The Sovereign Lord is my strength

The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to tread on the heights. For the director of music. On my stringed instruments.

Habakkuk 3:19 NIV

The Lord is the one who empowers us.  When we place our faith and trust in Jesus Christ the Lord is not expecting us to walk this journey in our own strength or our own power.  We have been given the Holy Spirit as a helper who will lead and guide us into all truth.  The Lord is calling us daily to seek Him and get alone with Him.  As we spend time with Him in prayer and the reading of His word our lives are strengthened.  Let us simply put aside our strength and ability, let us humble ourselves before the Lord, and simply rely upon Him in all things.
