Therefore shalt thou make [shiyth] them turn their back, [shakem] when thou shalt make ready [kuwn] thine arrows upon thy strings [meythar] against the face [paniym]
of them. KJV-Interlinear
12 For Thou
wilt make them turn their back; Thou wilt aim with Thy bowstrings at their
Back, 'shakem,' means the shoulder blades or that which you see when a person is moving, or in this case, running away, fleeing as it were.
Arrows against the face, is God meeting their charge, head on.
In many conflicts in history, the aggressor is met with side attacks or surprise ambushes and such, but in Gods case, the attacks of aggressors are always met head on, face to face.
Truth never has to hide from the false. Truth will always send the false into retreat. And as we studied in the previous verse, truth will always totally defeat the false.
Even though people pursue the lies of life, their own opinions rather than Gods, time is always on Gods side and never on the side of any created thing.
God transcends time and space. He is not confined by time or space. He invented them both. Thus He is omnipresent. But man is trapped in time and space and is confined within its boundaries. The only way we will have access to whatever exists beyond that, will not come until the next life.
The vastness of God is so far beyond our comprehension, that we cannot even begin to imagine the possibilities.
Man spends most of his time, trying to do what God has already done. And that in itself seems very bizarre and illogical. The components of salvation and eternal life and the spiritual life and the completion of oneself are already in place, yet people keep trying to build something better, with no clue as to what they are doing or how to do it.
Most folks spend their time, marking time, or walking in place, going nowhere, while recruiting others to do the same, rather than spending their time following the very simple path that God has already laid out, and then recruiting others to join them in that wonderful quest.
The crowns study should have taught you the many benefits of introducing others to the studies and things that you are learning, wherein you benefit as well by bringing or introducing them into their spiritual potential. But then most folks don't invite others let alone mention it.
With people, truth is something that they hide or keep their involvement secret due to embarrassment. With God, truth is something put out in the forefront to meet evil head-on.
Today evil cheers at its perceived victories. Tomorrow it will be silent and nowhere to be found.
As for you, where will your credentials of Christian support and courage, be found.
