Tuesday Matters- May 3, 2022
I still remember our youth pastor reminding me that two of our sons must sign up for a big upcoming youth event. Hey this is Debbie Griffith with Everyday Matters. “It’s a mountaintop experience they can ride on for weeks” he said. I couldn’t help but think of what I’d just read in Habakkuk 3:19; “The Lord God is my Strength; He makes my feet like hinds' feet and will make me to walk, not in terror but make spiritual progress upon my high places of trouble, and suffering!”
We tend to think that the highest place to be is on the mountaintop with no problems and everything going our way, but God says our high places are very often our troubles and sufferings. A mountain goat that has hinds’ feet can leap pretty freely on rocky and difficult slopes. They climb mountains with really no effort because of the way God’s made them. When we trust God, He gives us hinds’ feet to make spiritual progress during tough times. The mountaintop experience is strength and victory through the treacherous valleys…everyday.
