Biblical Trifecta

As part of my time in Scripture this morning, I was reading Psalm 18 and came across...
He makes my feet like hinds’ feet [able to stand firmly or make progress on the dangerous heights of testing and trouble]; He sets me securely upon my high places.
    Psalm 18:33 (Amplified)
 Which tripped a mental switch - as the "hind's feet" and "high places" are key elements of the passage I consider my life verse, Habakkuk 3:17-19...
The Lord God is my Strength, my personal bravery, and my invincible army; He makes my feet like hinds’ feet and will make me to walk [not to stand still in terror, but to walk] and make [spiritual] progress upon my high places [of trouble, suffering, or responsibility]!
     Habakkuk 3:19 (Amplified)
 And with a little research, I found that the identical phrase from Psalm 18 also shows up in a much longer psalm (song) hidden away in 2nd Samuel...
He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;
he causes me to stand on the heights.

     2nd Samuel 22:34 (NIV)
So, the promised trifecta of the blog post title... a reminder in triplicate that God is with me/us even when things are hard.

And on a day like today, water to my dry & dusty soul.
