Habakkuk, the prophet of old, trembled at what was happening in his nation. Scripture says his lips quivered and his knees buckled at the calamity soon to come. Yet, he rejoiced in the fact that his God would keep him safe. “He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;(stable and secure), and leads me to high places.” (See Habakkuk 3)
I seek the Solid Rock on higher ground when everything below becomes mud and muck. I purpose to search beyond me and to look above for my strength. The Sovereign Lord promises protection and security if I stand upon His promises -the solid and true Word of God – and give direction when there seems to be none. I can be surefooted and resolute in my faith. I can rise above the storms below and rest securely in His assurance. How? I only need to trust. God is still in control.
