Devotional: When the Enemy Comes in like a Flood

Devotional: When the enemy comes in like a flood, the spirit of the Lord lifts up a standard against him. Isaiah 59:19

When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him. (Isaiah 59:19)
The children begin acting up one after the other, the problems at work pour in in pairs, the bills come rushing in in trios and you are sure you are going to drown in this sea of problems. 

However, this is not the time to wallow in self-pity. It is the time to use this promise of God as your anchor so that you can stay afloat in the sea of problems.  

To do this, remind yourself that it is written "When the enemy shall come in" ... then the Holy "Spirit shall lift up a standard"

So now that the enemy has come into your life with problems, wait for the Holy Spirit to lift up a standard against him. 

When the enemy comes in like a flood, the spirit of the Lord lifts up a standard against him. Isaiah 59:19

As you wait, know that praising God is the best ways of spending your time of waiting for God to move on your behalf through the Holy Spirit.

This is because praise is an effective Christian spiritual warfare weapon. We can see a good example when the enemy armies of the Moabites, Ammonites and other people from Mount Seir came in to attack King Jehoshaphat and the Israelites because When they began to sing praises, God set ambushes and Ammonites and Moabites attacked the people from Mount Seir and when they had destroyed them, they destroyed each other. (2 Chronicles 20:22-23)

Therefore instead of watching to see how many more problems the enemy will add to your life, praise God for His mercy endures forever (2 Chronicles 20:21) and worship Him for what He is about to do in your life through His Holy Spirit.

Heavenly Father I ask You in the name of Jesus to send your Holy Spirit into my situation so that He can raise a standard against these problems that have been brought in by the enemy. 

Psalm 91 Devotional
