SECURE AND INVINCIBLE IN JESUS!
Sometimes we have to dig deeper to mine the truths that are in His Word. I did that with Habakkuk 3:19 and found a treasure trove in this verse! Here's my notes and don't miss the faith confession at the end of the exploration!
“The Lord God is my Strength, my personal bravery, and my invincible army; He makes my feet like hinds’ feet and will make me to walk [not to stand still in terror, but to walk] and make [spiritual] progress upon my high places [of trouble, suffering, or responsibility]!” (Habakkuk 3:19 AMPC)
Strength - Firmness; solidity or toughness; the quality of bodies by which they sustain the application of force without breaking or yielding; Support; that which supports; that which supplies strength; security; (Noah Webster 1828 Dictionary)
“God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.” (Psalm 46:1 NLT)
Bravery - brave spirit or conduct; courage; valor (Noah Webster 1828 Dictionary)
Invincible - Not to be conquered or subdued; that cannot be overcome (Noah Webster 1828 Dictionary)
Hinds’ feet, a commonly-used phrase that derives from the Bible, and it is used in the Holy Text to describe a person’s ability to overcome a challenge that has been affecting them or worrying them with ease and success. A hind is a female red deer. This kind of deer is able to move easily and rapidly across the rocks and uneven terrain of the mountains and mountainous landscape. It will leap from rocks without losing footing, suggesting that those with hinds’ feet are able to overcome things easily, and elegantly. ” (http://philosophy-religion.blurtit.com/11856/what-does-hinds-feet-mean-in-the-bible)
“He makes my feet like hinds’ feet [able to stand firmly or make progress on the dangerous heights of testing and trouble]; He sets me securely upon my high places.” (Psalm 18:33 AMPC)
Spiritual - Consisting of spirit; Pertaining to the renewed nature of man; as spiritual life (Noah Webster 1828 Dictionary)
Progress - A moving forward in growth; increase; A moving or going forward; a proceeding onward; passage from place to place (Noah Webster 1828 Dictionary)
Secure- free from danger of being taken by an enemy; that may resist assault or attack; safe; not alarmed; not disturbed by fear; confident of safety (Noah Webster 1828 Dictionary)
Because the Lord is my strength, my personal bravery, making my feet like “hinds’ feet,” in the midst of trouble, suffering and challenges, I will not stand still in terror but walk, securely in Him making spiritual progress! He makes me secure and invincible in Him!
