Taking you higher up

He makes my feet lie in the feet of a deer; He enables me to stand on the heights. (Psalms 18:33 New International Version)

There are certain things that you can learn only by doing them. No amount of explanation of geological formations can prepare a young deer or goat for getting up to the apex of a mountain. Rather, the deer or goat must strengthen its muscles by actually climbing.

Likewise, your faith can only grow in the midst of the doubts and unknowns of your circumstances. You exercise your trust in God, and He strengthens your spiritual muscles so that you can reach higher and achieve more with Him.

When you follow God, life is a wonderful adventure. So get ready for the climb. The view is truly worth it.
