A single phone call can disrupt our life. The enemy will pounce on anything it can use to attack us. Well I went to the doctor for a yearly checkup; they did one of those procedures where they try to turn a cup into a saucer~ you ladies know the one. It is a way of showing early signs of possible cancer. Well the phone call I got asked me to come back in, as there was something the doc wanted to look closer at.
That's enough to cause anxiety in some. However, having gone through a cancer journey once before, it did not concern me. Why? Because God had made Himself marvelously present throughout my walk. (Told in my book Cast Up A Highway.) And because anytime a negative thought would try and raise its ugly head, I would remember that my loving mighty God is my rear guard and nothing can sneak up behind me. See Isaiah 52:
Isaiah 52:12 (AMP)
For you will not go out in a hurry [as when you left Egypt],
Nor will you go in flight [fleeing, as you did from the Egyptians];
For the Lord will go before you,
And the God of Israel will be your rear guard.
Oh God of Israel You are King of Kings, Lord of Lords! You are my God, and I love YOU. Thank You for loving me so well! You go before us, leading the way and preparing our path, and nothing can sneak up behind us, because You are also our rear guard! Thank You, mighty God! We move forward to spread Your Word and bring truth to the world. Hallelujah!
God's Word brings us close to Him, because it is so personal. The Bible is the Living Word of God. It does not sit as some dry history book written eons ago and reporting happenings back then. Rather it is alive and speaks God's thoughts through His Words to us. Today His Word is meant to be a personal guide throughout our life. God will use it to talk intimately with us just when we need it the most; we trust in Him as our Lord, our Savior, our indwelling Holy Spirit who is our:
John 14:26 (AMP)
But the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will help you remember everything that I have told you.
God Himself will indwell us and help us through every phase of life. If we open ourselves up to Him, trust in Him, we shall live in glorious freedom. Our very nature is altered after we accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, and our new cleansed self can invite Holy Spirit, God Himself, to enter in and make His home within us. Life with God is so much better than fighting the evil enemy's nature that we had before Jesus.
If you have not already asked Jesus to come into your heart and be your Savior, now is the time! Admit and be sorry for your sins, and ask Jesus to enter into your heart and reign over your life forever. He will do it.
