THE LORD HAS OUR BACK
I am truly grateful for family and friends who have conveyed to me that they have my back. They have said those words at times when I truly needed someone to cover my back, because of life’s trials and troubles that had come my way. I know I am not alone. Regardless, of how many family members have our backs, there are times when their best efforts will not be enough. They are well intended, but they have their own problems and limitations to bear. But the Lord always has our backs and never runs short of blessings, He has the power to cover our backs and our entire being. Thank God today that He is always there. Our reference verse, found in Isaiah 26:3, reads in this manner:
“You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!”
In this deep and moving passage of scripture, we are assured that the hand of God will keep us in perfect peace. God has our backs! The prophet Isaiah begins verse one talking about the song in his heart. His trust is in the Lord. There is everlasting strength in the arms of the Almighty. This is a victory song of thanksgiving. The victory comes when our minds are stayed on Him and we trust Him. May you put your trust in the Lord today and know that He will keep you, provide for you, and cover you with His mighty hand.
