Life isn’t a fairytale always and even if you read the bible daily and are a righteous person you always struggle to find God in the midst of your adversity? There always may be a situation when you have a suspicion that whether God has really got your back? When a coworker talked negatively about you, without any repercussions? Or when an unfair situation made you out to be the bad guy? Or when there is no one to comfort you when you are lonesome.
Even though we read in the Bible that God is our Defender and Protector, we may wonder if He is really there. We may question if He’ll come to our rescue?. Whether God has got our back? Because sometimes it seems the bad guy gets away while we hurt. We may see no justice immediately. How do we know God has got our back when the going gets tough?
Psalm 108:13 is a basic, but powerful reminder that with God there is victory over our enemies. Know that Jesus has the victory and that nothing in this world can overcome you when you are in Him and the victory is His!
Then the Lord tells us in 1 Peter 4:12-14, “Do not think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, in as much as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. If you suffer for the name of Christ, blessed are you…!” In other words, the Lord was saying, “I Got Your Back…!”
When life presents itself with ever-changing variables, we’ve got to realize that we serve a God who is stationary in His Goodness, He is the unmoved Mover! For I heard Him tell Jehoshaphat in 2 Chronicles. 20:17 “You shall not need to fight in this battle: set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the LORD….” In other words, the Lord was saying, “I Got Your Back!”
Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.
