Everyone wants to enjoy the high place, but everyone doesn't want to endure the process of what it will take to develop hinds feet.
How does God make our feet like the feet of deer? Why such an animal? Have you ever watched a deer in action? Their feet are nimble and quick. Deer that go up into the mountains possess the capability to walk on the tiniest piece of a ledge with rocks. Their feet can fit into the smallest landings and still make the climb without falling. Hinds feet are swift and light while jumping exceptionally quick. What agility! This is God given!
God wants to make our feet agile. This speaks to our ability, with His power and help, to grow and thrive regardless of the circumstances we find ourselves in.
Psalm 23:5 says, "You prepare a table before me in the presence of mine enemies." God can make us to thrive and succeed in the midst of evil persons in an evil world. Those who get wind of situations we're facing (that they see and know about), look at us thinking that it is impossible to make it, survive it, overcome it, or get over it. Not so with God! While the enemy lurks, I can prosper because I have been set aside by God for His purposes. Despite what comes my way, I can experience joy and blessing!
Darkness is all around us, with danger, but we can make it from one point to another unhindered, and safe without falling because of the Lord. We can and will reach our destination.
So what is this high place He sets us on? The high place is the ultimate purpose that God has for us to fulfill here on earth. It is our ministry work. A perfect example of this is in the life of Joseph. Joseph was set apart for God and His purposes. Joseph had to endure many afflictions and hardships, but in them he developed to his full potential naturally and spiritually. His ultimate purpose, for the time he was living in, was to help save his people during the famine, and not just his immediate family. It was to the saving of the Egyptians also. All of your experiences are necessary in order to fulfill your life's purpose as a believer.
Enduring hardship and trials, with challenges isn't easy at all. Believe me when I tell you, I have had my share from birth right on into becoming a Christian and still to this day. I could tell you some stories, yet they are laced with triumphs and victories!
I don't know what you are facing today. It may be sickness, a crisis of some sort, or you may be staring at your worse nightmare; but God still says that He will make your feet to be as the feet of deer. No matter where you've landed you will not fall. God will never leave you alone without help, resources and support! The Word of God says that we are kept by the power of God! (1 Peter 1:5)
Trust God, and take some time to look up those in the bible who have experienced hardships, trials, challenges, and crisis and be encouraged! God is waiting to set you on your high places!
