(He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;) He enables me to stand (remain, endure, take one's stand) on the heights. 2 Samuel 22:34b
Apart from grace-driven effort, people . drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; drift toward superstition and call it faith. We cherish the indiscipline of lost self-control and call it relaxation; we slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking we have escaped legalism; we slide toward godlessness and convince ourselves we have been liberated. D.A. Carson, For the Love of God, Cited in "Reflections," Christianity Today July 31,2000
He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze. 2 Samuel 22:35
