Today's Word with Joel & Victoria

Like a Flood

Scripture

“…When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.”
(Isaiah 59:19, KJV)

Word

We all have times when we feel overwhelmed by life. You get a bad report, unexpected news, or someone you trusted wrongs you. What does God do? He doesn’t sit back and think, “Too bad. Sorry your life is so difficult.” No, when the enemy comes in like a flood, God raises up a barrier. In other words, that injustice, that bad break, that sickness gets God’s attention. He doesn’t sit back. He goes to work!

It’s like a parent with a child. If someone or something is giving them a hard time, you don’t think twice. You stop what you’re doing and immediately go to help. That’s the way it is with our heavenly Father. When the enemy comes in like a flood, God steps up and says, “Hey, wait a minute. You’re messing with the wrong person! That’s my son. That’s my daughter. If you’re going to mess with them, you’re going to have to first mess with Me — the all-powerful Creator of the universe.”

You’ve got to realize that in the tough times, you’re not alone. You’ve got somebody fighting for you. The Most High God has your back, and He’s ready to raise up a standard to protect you when the enemy comes in like a flood!

Prayer

Father, thank You for protecting me and fighting my battles. I choose to stand strong in faith knowing that You are fighting behind the scenes on my behalf in Jesus’ name! Amen.
