Rule #4 Strong Legs Can Save You!

Over the past week we have been venturing through Steve Elkington’s rules for establishing a great golf swing and using them as analogies to show how we can attain and maintain great momentum and stability in life. Steve’s next rule is no exception. Rule # 4 “Strong Legs Can Save You!” This instantly brings to mind the Scripture that says, “The Sovereign Lord is my strength, he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to go on the heights” (Habakkuk 3:19). It is a testament of how God endows God’s people with strength and stability during times of uncertainty and trials. If you are familiar with the foot work of a deer then you know that deer are surefooted. This is credited to the fact that deer have strong legs and precisely structured hooves that provide them with the stability needed to traverse any terra firma they are met with.

With rising gas prices, plummeting housing markets, and high unemployment rates it is evident that the terra firma (figuratively speaking) in society is becoming harder and harder to navigate. However, in times like these our faith or metaphorically speaking OUR STRONG LEGS CAN SAVE US! In times like these developing strong legs will provide the vigor needed to pass through the rough terrain. So the question becomes how does one establish strong legs? For Christians my suggestion would be to pray, to seek God, and to not lose heart. As Christians we are challenged to trust God when our realities give us every reason not to; this can be difficult. However, by praying to and trusting in God, strong legs (strong faith) are developed and strength is provided to withstand whatever trial, season, or situation you may be facing. Allow the Sovereign Lord to be your strength and watch how YOUR STRONG LEGS (FAITH) WILL SAVE YOU!
