Thank You, Lord, that I don't have to run away from trouble and hide in fear. I can instead come to You and ask You to go before me and fight for me against all opposition. I ask You to do that today. Save me from the things I fear will harm me. Thank You that You are my rear guard and You have always got my back. Help me to trust in You and not in my own strength when I am in trouble.
You shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight; for the Lord will go before you, and the God of Israel will be your rear guard.
