My dear friend, it brings me great joy to share God’s word with you. Today let’s meditate on the promise found in Habakkuk 3:19, which says, “He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; He enables me to tread on the heights.” Just as God strengthens the feet of a deer, He will strengthen your feet as well.

You might wonder why the comparison is not to a strong lion, a fast cheetah, an elephant with its powerful legs, or a giraffe with its tall legs. My dear friend, when you look at a deer’s legs, they may appear skinny, and you might question how they bear the weight of its body. Yet, those legs are incredibly strong, capable of supporting the deer and allowing it to walk and climb through narrow passages, over hills, and mountains, reaching the very heights.

Similarly, God strengthens our feet and legs to be as strong as those of a deer. David also says in Psalm 18:33, “He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; He causes me to stand on the heights.” No matter the narrow passages or crooked ways you encounter in life, when troubles and obstacles come your way, you will be able to maneuver through them because God strengthens your feet and equips you with the right tools.

So, be of good cheer, my friend. Today, you may be facing narrow passages in your life, but according to today’s promise, God is making your feet like the feet of a deer, enabling you to carry all the weight on your shoulders and navigate through all the narrow passages. You will climb with ease and reach the heights. God will make your feet like the feet of a deer so that you will tread on the heights. God bless you.


Heavenly Father, I come before You with a heart full of gratitude for Your promises and Your incredible power and love. You make my feet like the feet of a deer, enabling me to tread on the heights. Just as the deer’s legs are strong enough to carry it through narrow passages and up steep mountains, I believe You are equipping me to navigate the challenges and obstacles in my life. Thank You for giving me the strength to carry the burdens that come my way and for guiding me through the difficult paths. Father, help me to remember this promise when I face tough times. Empower me with the tools and strength I need to maneuver through life’s narrow passages. May I always find comfort in knowing that You are with me, enabling me to reach the heights and fulfill Your purpose for my life. I receive this promise today and declare it over my life. Thank You, Lord, for making my feet like the feet of a deer, so that I may tread on the heights. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.
