I have heard several beings blurt out, “My friends got my back!” or “My family got my back!” or “My Woman/Man got my back!” These phrases are often attached to situations where some type of support has failed out of one’s own efforts or some type of drama is at play. Well, let’s step into reality and note how the enemy has stepped in families, friendships, relationships and marriages. The enemy is destroying connections everywhere. We wake up each morning not knowing what to expect, and who and where it is coming from. Some of us can’t even walk straight because we have been stabbed in the back so much by family, friends, and mates. Allow me to let you in on something. Yes, these people can and will have your back. But is this what you depend on when you fall short in some area? Knowing that this support is not promised? The One who has your back is GOD. His support doesn’t come with conditions. His support doesn’t talk about you badly one week and be in your face smiling the next week. His support doesn’t help you just to say so. His support doesn’t turn backwards on you and decide to come back later on. His support is promised. Nothing compares to it. He is The One who gives eternal life. That is great support! God’s support is support that is unquestionable. God fights all battles for you when you surrender to Him. If you have good support on earth – wonderful! But the BEST SUPPORT and THE ONE WHO TRULY HAS YOUR BACK is THE LORD. “The Lord will keep you from all harm – he will watch over your life” Psalm 121:7 (NIV). Be Blessed. -S.L.M.
