Day 162 – God Giveth Me Strength
32 It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect. 33 He maketh my feet like hinds’ [deer’s] feet, and setteth me upon my high places. 34 He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms. Psalms 18:32-34
The feet of a deer has strength on the rear side to help them in leaping. The ability to leap gives speed advantage. It enables the deer to navigate rough terrain and also to escape from the enemies that are trying to catch up to them. So, this scripture describes how the Lord is giving you the needed speed and strength to overcome your enemies, and leap to a place of victory, safety, defense and promotion.
‘He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms’. This is a truly interesting verse of scripture. When God teaches you in battle, you will be able to ‘easily break the steel’ or ‘excellently bend the bow’. This talks of strength and strategy in battle. You can call it divine wisdom and capacity for breakthrough.
As you face your day today may you experience the enablement of God in every area of your life and endeavor. Draw from your union with God by faith and enjoy the hinds’ feet He gives as He guides you to safety with strength and as He perfects your ways. Verse 36 says: ‘Thou hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip.’ May God give you enlargement, balanced, security and stability in all areas of your life. Go, and be blessed today in Jesus’ name. Amen.
