Have you ever wished you had eyes in the back of your head? I could have used eyes in the back of my head when our children were little. Eyes in the back of my head would be comforting at the airport when walking to my car at night after a speaking engagement. What do we mean by “eyes in the back of our head”? It speaks to our desire to be safe and to be able to sense what’s happening that we can’t see. How comforting to know that just as God was a rear guard to the Israelites when they escaped Egypt, and Isaiah 52:12 describes God as a rear guard to the Israelites in the new kingdom, Jesus is a rear guard to us today. He watches over us. We’ll not know until heaven how many ways and times He’s protected us from evil. The Lord is our rear guard. We can thank Him, and we can pay attention to His still quiet voice. 

Lord, thank You for being our REAR GUARD and for all the ways You watch over us and protect us. How comforting to know You’ve got our back.

Record God’s names and titles in Prayers of My Heart prayer journal so you’ll have a keepsake of all 365.

“… the Lord will go before you, And the God of Israel will be your REAR GUARD.” Isaiah 52:12
