A Standard Against The Enemy

Isaiah 59:19
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.
The enemy has been attacking like an overwhelming flood. A little while ago, I remembered this promise, praise the Lord. Yesterday I started praying that the Lord would keep this promise and lift up a standard against the enemy. Before I fell asleep last night, I was praying, Lift up a standard against the enemy, Lift up a standard against the enemy. I was surprised and delighted to find this very verse in my Bible reading for today, because I had no idea where this verse was in the Bible. Yesterday I said Amen when I was praying with a friend, who prayed, "show us a token for good." God has shown me His Love, once again! Despite my sins and slothfulness and weakness and fears and confusion, He's shown me He's real, and true, and living, and active! He's worth my trust, and He delights to hear my voice and answer my prayers! Everything the Lord does is good. Let the Lord be magnified!
