As you’ve probably discovered, the Christian life isn’t always easy. There are plenty of problems to keep you from being filled with the joy of the Lord. But God is committed to setting you free from traps that wreck your peace, even if all you can do is change your internal response. Here’s what David said about the Lord: “He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights” (Psalm 18:33 NIV). What a glorious picture of our life in Christ! Your heavenly Father wants you to experience this freedom no matter what’s going on around or within you. This month, ask for His help in finding the heights. He’ll show you any place you’re being held back and supply the strength to move forward into His joy each day.
