Day 20 ~ Like the Feet of Deer

Day 20 ~ Like the Feet of Deer

He makes my feet like the feet of deer,
And sets me on my high places. Psalm 18:33

 

Psalm 18 begins with these words “I will love You, O Lord, my strength.” In a psalm that David wrote after his victory over Saul, after the fight that lasted a long long time and cost David his dear friend, after being on the run and hideout for so many long painful years, David turns around and attributes all his accomplishments to God.

 

What follows is an acknowledgment of what God has done for him throughout those long lasted years of flight. Because he was always on the run, he attributes his swiftness as God’s provision, by comparing them to the “feet of deer”. Deers are characterized by long and powerful legs, which gives them the ability to run very fast, especially when hunted by the lions.
