Rear Guard

I’ve said it before and I will say it again; GOD’S GOT YOUR BACK. He’s watchin’ out for you.

Do you believe it?

I love how another one of my heroes, A.W. Tozer, puts it. Check it out:

To believe actively that our Heavenly Father constantly spreads around us providential circumstances that work for our present good and our everlasting well-being brings to the soul a veritable benediction. Most of us go through life praying a little, planning a little, jockeying for position, hoping but never being quite certain of anything, and always secretly afraid that we will miss the way. This is a tragic waste of truth and never gives rest to the heart.

There is a better way. It is to repudiate our own wisdom and take instead the infinite wisdom of God. Our insistence on seeing ahead is natural enough, but it is a real hindrance to our spiritual progress. God has charged Himself with full responsibility for our eternal happiness and stand ready to take over the management of our lives the moment we turn in faith to Him. …God constantly encourages us to trust Him in the dark.

Amen Brother!! What else can I say?

May it be so.

“…for the LORD will go before you, the God of Israel will be your rear guard.

Isaiah 52:12
