Focus: Isaiah 59:19 - KJV
19. 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.
The Lord is mighty in battle. He is so fierce when dealing with His enemy. No wonder scriptures say it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. In our dealings, two things are very important: we must ensure we are not pitching our camp against the Lord; and we must ensure we are in relationship with the Spirit of God. Pitching Camp against God is about being a sinner. Being a sinner is making oneself God’s enemy by rejecting His Lordship. This is tricky and critical as many believe that they are God’s whereas no one is God’s who do not know or understand His ways. For the other, there is no relationship with the Spirit if there is no salvation through Christ. Once the requirements are in place, we can rest assured that when the enemy comes against us, he comes against the Lord and the Lord is quick to raise a standard by His Spirit on our behalf.
Israel, in the days of Joshua pitched camp with the Lord. Because they were the Lord’s, when the enemy came rushing against them like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord raised a standard against the enemy. The standard raised was to throw down stones from heaven. The fact that the Lord fights for His own gives the believer confidence to do more. When Joshua saw the slaughter that the Lord was doing, for greater effect he looked to God for an occasion to issue a decree such that by his decree, the onslaught of the enemy continued unabated because the sun never went down for a whole day. God is no respecter of persons. If He did this for Israel, He can and will do the same for you and I if the principles are in place. Therefore, all those enemies rushing against you like a flood are in for a terrible time today as the Spirit of the Lord will surely raise a standard against them.
SOLUTION: Be resolute today to constantly be on the side of the Lord. Cultivate the habit of fellowship with the Holy Spirit by being a worshipper in tongues. Then decree a thing and see it established unto you. Your enemy is in trouble for sure.
God will cause all the elements of nature to work against those who are moving against your progress in the name of Jesus. This very day, the Lord will take over the battles of your life and confront your enemies for you in Jesus name. Surely, you will have the last laugh today in Jesus name. Your victory is here.
