Ephesians-6-15

As sure footed as a deer – Psalm 18:33

The believer in Christ must stand firm at all times. After wearing the Belt of Truth and Breastplate of Righteousness, the believer must wear the sturdy foot wear of Peace. A Solider does not go into battle with shoes that will make him slide all over the place. The soldier’s foot must not slip, but stand firm, against the adversary. Psalm 18:33 says,

“He makes me as surefooted as a deer,
enabling me to stand on mountain heights.”

The believer in Christ must never doubt the ability of Christ. He enables one to stand on great heights, like a surefooted deer. Even though there are so many rocks and boulders on a mountain, the deer just keeps on climbing. It does not slip, tumble or fall.

The peace of God gives us stability and confidence in battle. Whatever the problem or circumstance, the person who stands on the peace, which the gospel brings, will never be moved. A person in peace with God will approach God with confidence. They will not be confined or restricted. Peace brings mobility and freedom. What will separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord? (Romans 8:39). We are asked to come boldly before the throne of grace, where we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in the times of need (Hebrews 4:16). Christ is our peace (1 Tim.1:2). He has broken down the “wall of separation” (Ephesians 2:14).

The devil is after the soul. When a person knows they are reconciled with God, it gives them perfect peace. The peace of God will sustain a person during the most trying times. The believer can confidently say, “I raise my Ebenezer,” knowing that God, who has brought them thus far, will see them through, right to the very end.

Jesus gives the Hope and Faith that overcomes the world , Amen.
