The Sovereign Lord Is My Strength
Scripture Text: The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to tread on the heights. Habakkuk 3:19
This verse is a part of prophet Habakkuk’s prayer
The Sovereign Lord is my strength
Sovereign refers to God as the Almighty God. The Sovereign God is in control of all things. Everything that happens is in God’s plan and He is in control of all things, even when we cannot make sense of it.
Habakkuk is telling that the Sovereign Lord is his strength.
Yes, the Sovereign Lord is our strength. We do not know what we will face in our life journey but we can know our Sovereign Lord will give us the strength we need to face life’s trials and battle.
When we are totally dependent upon the Lord for everything, we can find all the strength that we need to make it through life.
When David faced Goliath, he never really focused on Goliath’s strength. He was too focused on God’s strength.
The Psalmist says, The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” Psalm 27:1NKJV
He makes my feet like the feet of a deer
Deers don’t fall down easily. They leap over obstacles on their way and can run swiftly. It can stand firmly and walk securely even on narrow and difficult terrains. They climb higher and higher. Even when they climb the rocky and steep mountains not one foot slips.
When our journey becomes rough God who is our strength will get us through. God makes the feet of his children to be like deer’s feet.
God will give us the ability to climb the mountains of trouble, suffering and sickness in our lives and make progress without any fear of slipping and falling.
He enables me to tread on the heights
Habakkuk is telling us that God enables him to rise above his circumstances. God will help us to arrive at the top of the hill safely. Since God is by our side we will see victory and tread on the heights.
In times of difficulty it is vital that we keep our faith in God’s sovereign power.
He will give you the power, He will give you the strength and He will give you the endurance. You will win and you will walk in victory.
God Bless You!
