The headlines today are often so negative and filled with bad news. It’s about time for some really good news, don’t you think? With the news and so many discouraging things that life throws at you, it’s easy to want to just give up and quit. But we can find encouragement in God’s word from Habakkuk 3: 17-19:
“Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength, and He will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and he will make me to walk upon my high places.”
God wants to give us hinds’ feet for our high places. The top of the mountain is where you can see the most spectacular view. God wants to take us to the mountaintop of experiences of His glory! He wants us to be like deer,leaping from mountain to mountain, going from glory to glory. God wants to do the impossible in and through our lives, using us in even greater ways than He did with Jesus. (John 14:12).
Think of all Jesus did while He was on the earth. He healed the sick, cast out demons, saved the lost. And God wants to use us this way, too! He doesn’t want us down, defeated, and discouraged by life – but wants us going to new heights of glory in Him!
