This fight ain't got any rear!

Tuesday, July 30, 2013 (8:36 am)

by George Whitten, Editor of Worthy Devotions

Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

Historian Shelby Foote tells of a soldier who was wounded at the battle of Shiloh during the American Civil War and was ordered to go to the rear. The fighting was fierce and within minutes he returned to his commanding officer. "Captain, give me a gun!" he shouted. "This fight ain't got any rear!"

In Ephesians, Paul describes the armor that we should put on daily. Have you ever noticed that every part of the body is covered except for one? The back! The Lord didn't want us to run away and turn our back toward our enemy — it would leave us vulnerable, with no armor to protect us against his attack! And just as a dog would when he senses fear, if we run from the enemy, he will relentlessly chase us until we are broken. But if we take courage and stand strong in the power of God's might, then the battle will be the Lord's… and He has already won the victory!

The battle is raging! It's time to take up our armor and face the enemy head-on! There's no turning back! We're in this together! There's so much work to be done!

    its like trying to drive a car while only looking in your rear view mirror. you are bound to crash. we need to look forward at the things that are coming at us. we cant move forward if we dwell on the past and consatantly are looking back. The Holy Spirit wants us to keep focused on our faith in Christ and reaching others in our areas all around us. Lets choose this day to move from Glory to Glory and dwell not on the things from the past, but the wonders of whats in front of us.
