Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- June 21, 2011
“But you will not leave in haste or go in flight; for the LORD will go before you, the God of Israel will be your rear guard.” Isaiah 52:12
God’s got your back–there is no need to panic and flee, but stand firm by faith. His righteous rear guard is a godly garrison against an ever-scheming enemy. Unbelief will assault your blindside, but do not surrender to fears facade. Release your inhibitions to intimacy with Jesus and trust Him to guide you in His ways. A believer backed by God can be bold to carry on.
The glory of God has your back. His glory not only illuminates your path going forward, but He leads you backwards into needed retreats for renewal. A soul cannot be sustained by constant good activity, but requires regular solace and solitude with its Savior Jesus. Spiritual armor: the sword of the spirit, the breastplate of righteousness and the helmet of salvation cover your front, but your heavenly Father’s glory covers your back. He protects your vulnerable areas.
“Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness[a] will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard” (Isaiah 58:8).
Where do you feel vulnerable? With your finances–God’s got your back. With sharing your emotions–God’s got your back. With your job security–God’s got your back. With your physical health–God’s got your back. With your marriage–God’s got your back. With your social skills–God’s got your back. With your education–God’s got your back. With your spiritual maturity–God’s got your back. Rest in the One who is vigilant to defend His own.
You don’t have to be defensive when you are confident of Christ’s divine defense. Critical distractors will attempt to shoot arrows of animosity into your back, but their jealousy is no match for Jehovah’s secure protection. A back, backed by the Lord, does not have to back down from believing big things. Trust Jesus and avoid worry of what might surprise you from behind. Heaven has your back; so hell is unable to blindside your belief.
“Then the Spirit lifted me up, and I heard behind me a loud rumbling sound as the glory of the LORD rose from the place where it was standing” (Ezekiel 3:12).
What fears can I give over to God, because He’s got my back?
