I must prophesy and proclaim what I hear in my heart.
So many times we focus on pressing forward in life to attain something new. We are focused on the future. Our God is a progressive God, and He is the author of increase. It is a normal part of the kingdom life to look towards what is ahead. But there is a time to rest and reflect on the goodness of God.
As we prepare to turn our clocks back tonight, I felt a reminder, in my heart, that we can fall back into the loving arms of our God. He will give us the extra time that we need to prepare for our next steps. We can take a deep breath and be content in His presence. We can trust that He is always there to catch us. We can release the pressures of life and take a deep breath.
God is our rearguard. He goes before us, but He watches over our back. He does both simultaneously. Only our God can do that!
I sensed that someone needs to know that God has your back. You can trust Him. He is watching ahead of you and is there to hold you up. Fall back into His arms and let Him remind you of His love towards you. Celebrate that He is upholding you with His righteous right hand. Amen.
Isaiah 52:12 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.
