Secret of the Hind’s Feet


Ah ha, there you are!

You have discovered this little cubbyhole inside The Cupboard. Now that you are here I want to tell you about the secret of the hinds’ feet.

The hind is a female red deer whose home is the mountains. The rear feet of the hind step in precisely the same spot where the front feet have just been. Every motion of the hind is followed through with single-focused consistency, making it the most sure-footed of all mountain animals.

Now listen to how the Lord compares our spiritual walk with the hind…

“The Lord God is my strength, and he has made my feet like hinds’ feet, and makes me walk on my high places.” (Habakkuk 3:19 and also found in Psalm 18:33)

Do you know that the Lord has some high places for you? Places where the air is pure, the view pristine, distractions are far below, and there are paths just big enough for the two of you. It’s true that the climb up to the high places is a bit more challenging than a level foot path in the valley. But not if you’ve got those hinds’ feet; the hinds’ feet equip you for the roughest terrain.

Can’t you just smell that mountain air? What are you waiting for?
