Psalm 18: 33-36


He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;
he causes me to stand on the heights.

Deer are so nimble.

Unlike us.

We tend to fall.

A lot.

But deer rarely stumble.

God made them that way.

When we trust God, He will cause our feet to stay strong.


Securely on the path He has opened for us.

He trains my hands for battle;
my arms can bend a bow of bronze.

God helps us fight.

He shows us what to do and just how to do it.

He gives us His incredible strength to accomplish great things.

Necessary things.

We are amazed at our strength when we are strong through Him.

You make your saving help my shield,
and your right hand sustains me;
your help has made me great.

God helps us, saving us, shielding us.

We do not falter with His right hand steadying us.

Keeping us upright.

More than upright, but successfully tall.

Standing tall and unharmed.

Perfectly whole.

You provide a broad path for my feet,
so that my ankles do not give way.

God creates the path and walks with me, guarding every step, ensuring I don’t fall. 

All I must do is trust His way, holding onto Him.

The way is unknown, every step taken in faith; however, it is very good. 


Because God is perfect. 

God is good. 

I am His.

And He is mine.
