No matter the circumstance or obstacle faced, you have an option to exercise! Isaiah 59:19 says ‘that when the enemy comes in like a flood the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him,’ the standard is the key to the defeat of the enemy in your life.
Noah Webster defines standard as “2) that which is established by sovereign power as a rule or measure by which others are to be adjusted.” What is the rule or measure that God would use? For the believer, our praise is one of God’s standards along with worship, the word of God, and our submission to living holy. These are measures that causes the enemy to adjust, to flee, and to become defeated in our lives.
God is our sovereign power and He’s given you the authority to execute His standard so activate it. Today when the enemy shows up, lift up the praises of the Lord. Open your mouth and declare! Use your options!!!
