Isaiah 59: 19-21
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. As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed's seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever.
It may seem like sometimes that the enemy has the upper hand on you but don't quit, the battle is not over, God has the last word. Sometimes you can hear the enemies of your destiny and faith laughing at you as if they have conquered and you are defeated. However their laughter will turn to their own demise. Every device that the enemy tries to bring against you is powerless to harm you. Lift up your head and be encouraged, God is on your side and He will not fail you. Don't agree with the words of the enemy that he has sent to steal, kill and destroy from you.. You are not a failure. You are not defeated. You are not a nothing or a nobody. Don't believe a word Satan says, he is a liar. You are the head and not the tail, above only and not beneath. You are more than a conqueror through Christ that loves you. Put God's word in your mouth and speak life in the mist of troubling storms and dark clouds of despair. People may be looking at you waiting on you to go down, cave in and quit but you are not a quitter. Tell those spectators to keep looking because they will see the glory of God manifest in your life. You're not down and you're definitely not out, so keep on stepping in the direction of your Divine Destiny and don't be moved by the light afflictions that come to try and get you off course. Just know that the joy of the Lord is your strength and the word of God ,which is your standard, is your sword. You can't lose with that combination. You are a winner in Christ. Lift up the standard and tell the enemy it is written, "no weapon formed against me shall prosper." Lift up a standard and tell the enemy it is written, "By Jesus stripes I am healed." Lift up a standard and tell the enemy, it is written, "Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world."
Go ahead walk in your authority and maintain the victory through Christ our Redeemer!
