Isaiah 52:12 is a thought-provoking verse. In short, the Lord goes before us, and is therefore available to help us advance in this world. But God is also behind us, to give us a buffer from danger, and to protect us. In other words, God fully encompasses our lives. He is our spiritual sword, as well as our spiritual shield. He is the Word of truth and the safeguard of faith. He is the Almighty One. The great One. The One worthy of eternal praise. Thank you Lord for supporting us in every way.
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.” (NIV)
