One of my most favorite devotionals is Hinds Feet On High Places by Hannah Hurdard. I can so relate to the story of much afraid, how she took the journey away from her fearing family in to the high places of the shepherd. It is an allegory of the Christian life from salvation to maturity.
Every process of our journey is a growing experience. Perhaps you’ve had a beautiful path laid out for you, as your feet have been firmly planted on good soil for as long as you can remember. Or perhaps you got off to a rocky start, sometimes tracking through mud and rock to get to the high places. Or perhaps you are standing, frozen in your tracks, afraid to move, for fear of where your path may lead you.
Be assured, my friend, that the Good Shepherd is watching over you. No matter how the road looks to you, know that He will give you the grace and the strength to journey to the high places. This process of maturity is often hard, often painful, but most certainly rewarding.
It is God that girds me with strength, and makes my way perfect. 33He makes my feet like hinds’ feet, and sets me on my high places. (Psalm 18:32-33)
