God: puts it down quickly….
Isaiah 59:19-20 (KJV) “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. And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the Lord.”
It might seem that the things which are happening to cause distress and concern to our bodies and spirits are more than we can tolerate; we want to throw in the towel in the fight and put up our hands in defeat.
This last fight is going on longer and fiercer than we could ever stomach or tolerate; we won’t make it through.
But alas, the good Lord knows just how much we can take and when it is at it’s worst then reinforcements comes in the form of our Lord and Savior.
He put in an appearance which is enough to defeat any offensive the adversary had even displayed and which had intimidated us to the point of growing weary.
God in His word said that “When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.” (v 19.) Our God is awesome in His love and defense of us.
