A Curious, Leeping or Panting Deer?

This was shared on Facebook. I enjoy the beach and deer, but never saw one doing this. Seems to enjoy himself/herself.

“As the deer pants for the water brooks, So my soul pants for You, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God; When shall I come and appear before God?” (Psalms 42:1-2 NASB)

Here another video on YouTube:

Also, Isaiah 35:1-6 tells us more about the deer leaping to encourage the lame that they will also one day leap for joy.

“The wilderness and the desert will be glad, And the Arabah will rejoice and blossom; Like the crocus It will blossom profusely And rejoice with rejoicing and shout of joy. The glory of Lebanon will be given to it, The majesty of Carmel and Sharon. They will see the glory of the LORD, The majesty of our God. Encourage the exhausted, and strengthen the feeble. Say to those with anxious heart, “Take courage, fear not. Behold, your God will come with vengeance; The recompense of God will come, But He will save you.” Then the eyes of the blind will be opened And the ears of the deaf will be unstopped. Then the lame will leap like a deer, And the tongue of the mute will shout for joy. For waters will break forth in the wilderness And streams in the Arabah.” (NASB)

Prairie Dogs – Squirrel like rodents build listening room in its underground tunnel to listen for danger before going outskirts…

Do we have the habit of listening to God’s voice and direction before we go out?

Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee. (Psalms 143:8 KJV)

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. (Psalms 119:105 KJV)

Deer prefer to live in its established territory for life and even prefers to starve than to leave its territory!

God promised to give us feet of deer and place us high above the rock ..

But do we live in His territory?

He made my feet like the feet of a deer and set me secure on the heights. (2 Samuel 22:34 ESV)
