High Place - Sit with God

Habakkuk 3:19”The Lord GOD is my strength, And He has made my feet like hinds' feet, And makes me walk on my high places.”

Can a scripture keep you so enthralled that you could think of nothing else?  Yeah, get to the end of this article then you would comprehend the power behind God’s Word.  Well, God sent this scripture to me almost like a ‘wrapped up gift’, at a time when things were unimaginably tough and knotty, as a family we were praying for God to intervene and bring us a breakthrough, during this time, I read this scripture: ‘He would make my feet like hinds’ feet and I would walk on high places!’  

The words that captivated me much were the ‘high place!’  Normally we would get lot of ‘Amens’ for this promise because people attribute high places to materialistic blessings like car, promotion, foreign assignment, new job etc; however, walking in high places means that you would walk with God in the place where He dwells. This thought gives me goosebumps' , how about you? If you’re not excited about being with God, then the rest of the portion would bore you stiff; nevertheless, if you are the one who would love to get deeper with God then you proceed.  You may wonder, ‘why is Bala getting so crazy about this verse, it doesn’t promise any goodies though?’  Well, if you know my journey then you would understand the reason behind my joy.

On one single day I had to deal with students bashing each other, three girls of the same family who joined Angel Home were creating problems because the father wanted the children back, besides this, administration, financial and various other problems choked me. I came home tensed, did not utter a word but inside I was pleading the Lord, ‘this is too much Lord.’  My feet were shaking and I felt:


It is now that I read ‘I will strengthen you and make your feet like a deer and make you walk in high places.’   The word ‘high’ means elevation or height in Hebrew and above the sky or heavenly in Greek, therefore, the ‘high place’ means the heavenly realm.  Deer is able to scale treacherous tough terrains and elude predators. Deer’s legs are even able to jump on hard and sharp rocks to get to the top of the hill, a place where the deer will be in a much safer situation.  Likewise, God strengthens us to flee from demons, problems, sickness, loneliness, strife, envy, betrayals, mockery, criticisms and get to the high place with God, where you feel secure. Stay blessed!
