“So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.” Isaiah 59:19
Did you know a device of the enemy is to attack back to back? You can have a season of peace where everything is going well, then you notice one thing happens, then another, and another. It’s manifold temptations that are designed to get you out of faith. If you don’t understand this tactic of the enemy of repeated attacks, it can throw you off. But thank God when the enemy comes in like a flood in that way, God lifts up a standard against him. The power of the Word of God is that standard. It is your deliverance.
If you know that God delivered you before, He will deliver you again. If He provided before, He will provide again. No weapon formed against you will prosper. Instead of saying, “If one more thing happens, I’m going to lose it!” Because one more thing is likely to happen. Instead, let the whole kingdom of darkness know, “No matter what happens in my life, I’m going to keep on standing on the Word of God! I’m going to keep trusting in my God! I’m going to keep my mouth full of praise and I’m not backing down! No matter what it looks like in my life, I have the victory through Jesus!”
Prayer: Father, I thank you for your supernatural encouragement. It gave me the boost I need to keep moving forward despite temporary circumstances. You are my God and I thank you that no matter what comes my way, you are faithful to lift up a standard in my life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
(Read Job 1:1-2:10)
