When the Enemy Comes in Like a Flood – Beloved Women – July 19, 2023


When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him. - Isaiah 59:19 NIV


Our feelings will tell us we’re not strong enough, the enemies lies will tell us to give up, our thoughts may convince us it’s too much to overcome, but faith says, in all circumstances, God is greater! It doesn’t matter how it looks, how many times you’ve stumbled, or how many fiery darts have been released, God will always outdo the enemy.

For every attack, God will provide deliverance. For every blow, God will provide healing. For every loss, God will provide redemption.

There is nothing the enemy can do, that God cannot restore, vindicate, or recover. It’s our faith in God, that releases His power in our lives. Any attack on our faith, is for the sole purpose of disarming us of the protective power of God over our lives. So let’s place our faith in God’s ability, and not our circumstance. No matter the situation, let’s make faith in God our first and only option.


Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for the victorious power you have given me. I pray for courage and strength to rise above fear and doubt, and always place my faith in you. In Jesus Christ’s Name, I pray, Amen.


How have you seen God help you to rise above your challenges?
