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.
How many times have you found yourself in a jam? If you like any other person the answer is often.

This is why the word of God says when the enemy comes in like a flood, God will lift up a standard against him. For it is written:
You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.
God’s word is final day and the enemy cannot overthrow the will God has for your life, and when he is in pursuit of the God in you, you must remember to use your spiritual tools overcome his temptation and not fall into his traps.
When the enemy strikes you, If you pay close attention you will notice he hits you in the same place every time. Which is the mind, the enemy attack the mind in order to attack other areas of our lives. The Bible says meditate on the word of God both day and night (Joshua 1:8). To think about whatever is pure, lovely honorable and upright in the sight of God (Philippians 4:8) Because when you meditate on such of things you activate God whom lives in you. Anytime you’re seeking the kingdom of God by righteous living you defeat the enemy in the real of the spirit. Remember, this is a spiritual fight and spiritual warfare. In order for God to set up a standard against the enemy you must be in position for God to move on your behalf. The Bible says who can ascend to the mountain of the Lord? Only those with clean hands and a pure heart. (psalms 24:3-5) being in alignment with God’s spirit will help you overcome mental battles with speed , force and accuracy of the Holy Spirit.
God is bringing us to a place of protection and provision. No longer will you be shut out. It’s time to make the decision to walk with God completely and allow Him to set a standard against your enemies for you. We don’t have to fight back, we don’t have to defend ourselves. Proverbs 21:30 says “the word of God needs no defense.” When the enemy comes in like a flood, all you have to do is stand. And when you have done all you can you stand again. Because greater is in you than he who is in the world.
