‘Hinds’ feet’, a commonly-used phrase that derives from the Bible, and it is used in the Holy Text to describe a person’s ability to overcome a challenge that has been affecting them or worrying them with ease and success. This comes from Verse 33 in Psalm 18, where it reads: ‘He maketh my feet like hinds’ feet, and setteth me upon my high places’.

A hind is a female red deer. This kind of deer is able to move easily and rapidly across the rocks and uneven terrain of the mountains and mountainous landscape. It will leap from rocks without losing footing, suggesting that those with hinds’ feet are able to overcome things easily, and elegantly.

The importance of overcoming your problems in today’s society is undoubtedly the reason that this phrase is so commonly used. Many people do not realize that the Bible isn’t just a religious book. Instead, it is a book that has influenced large parts of the world. Most of the culture from Western countries derives from this holy book, and simple things like a saying like ‘hinds’ feet’ just shows how relevant the scriptures in the Bible still are.

The Bible is able to provide you with the spiritual help that you need, and even help that you might need in reference to overcoming problems.

The biblical verse that talks about ‘hinds’ feet’ suggests that God has inspired all believers, and allowed them to overcome the obstacles in their life, which confront them every day. Doing things the right way can see everybody overcoming their problems. The Bible reinforces this and helps Christians and other readers of Psalms and other gospels to overcome their issues without worry.

The phrase 'hinds' feet' is used in the Bible to denote an ability to overcome difficult challenges successfully, as in Verse 33 from Psalm 18 which reads 'He maketh my feet like hinds' feet, and setteth me upon my high places.' A hind, which is a female red deer, is able to move quickly and easily across the rocks of a mountain, leaping from one rock to another without ever losing its footing. Thus the biblical verse means that God has inspired his believers and empowered them to overcome the obstacles which confront them, doing things that would otherwise be difficult or impossible without divine aid.

I believe hinds feet in the Bible refers to strength and agility. If you ever have seen a deer run and jump (or any other 4-legged creature for that matter) you will have noted the strength and power in those hind legs- they can really move! God gives His children this power when we need it. Think back to a certain tough time in your life and how God saw you through it- that was your hind feet! I have a cat- a rather small animal if you will- but boy can those hind legs go! Wow!

A hind is a female red deer.  She is able to move from step to step, where he back hind is able to land precisely and exactly where her front foot stepped.  There is no error.  This is a sure-footed animal.  In Psalm 18: 33 David says, "he maketh my feet like hinds feet, and setteth me upon my high places".  God orders the steps of a righteous man, thus we are to trust him, that he will set and lead us to our high places of refreshing, a place where we are dwelling in him as a way of life.  With God, we can overcome all the obstacles, set-backs, trials and troubles that are a part of this fallen world.  However, we already have the victory and are more than overcomers through Christ Jesus.  You have hinds feet, and you have already overcome, because Jesus overcame the World.

A hind is a female deer, so the reference is to strength, agility and speed.

Hinds feet is the love and respect God has for our feet. There is actually a section dedicated to feet in John. Read it! It will give you all the information on hind feet and more. It will explore toe philosphy and the art of nail painting.
