TOPIC:  Hanging Tough

SCRIPTURE: The Lord God is my Strength, my personal bravery, and my invincible army; He makes my feet like hinds’ feet and will make me to walk [not to stand still in terror, but to walk] and make [spiritual] progress upon my high places [of trouble, suffering. or responsibility! – Habakkuk 3:19 (AMPC)

Joyce Meyer Daily Devotional 27 September 2022 MESSAGE

The Old Testament prophet Habakkuk spoke of hard times, calling them “high places,” and stating that God had given him “hinds’ feet” to scale those high places.

A “hind” refers to a certain kind of deer that is an agile mountain climber. It can scale up what looks like a sheer cliff, leaping from ledge to ledge with great ease. This is God’s
will for us, that when hardship comes our way, we are not intimidated or frightened.

To be truly victorious, we can grow to the place where we are not afraid of hard times but are actually challenged by them. In Habakkuk 3:19, these “high places” are referred to as “trouble, suffering, or responsibility.” This is because it is during these times that we grow.

If you look back over your life, you will see that most of your spiritual growth didn’t occur during the easy times in life; you grow during difficulty.

Then during the easy times that come, you are able to enjoy what you have gained during the hard times.

Life is filled with a mixture of abasing and abounding (see Philippians 4:12), and both
are valuable and necessary.

Prayer of the Day: Lord Jesus, please help me to recognize the devil’s accusations and
lies from the onset and teach me to talk back to him and shut them down, amen.
