To those who feel as though you have been backed into a corner; to you who feel like there is no escape, as you anxiously look at what has backed you against a wall:
Look up and round and see that I am behind you! I am the Lord your God, the one who covers your back and shields you. I am the one who loves you: find your security in me; find your salvation in me.
When you see my love for you, when you hear what I say to you and about you, then your fears will start to melt away.
It is then that I will give you solutions and strategies and I will provide the exit and escape for you. You are my beloved and you were not made to be backed into a corner because of fear. So look to me and see me. Let me be your security and great defender. Know my love for you and watch the fear disappear.
Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’Behold, all those who are angered at you will be shamed and dishonoured; Those who contend with you will be as nothing and will perish. You will seek those who quarrel with you, but will not find them, Those who war with you will be as nothing and non-existent. For I am the LORD your God, who upholds your right hand, Who says to you, ‘Do not fear, I will help you.’
