Welcome to “In His Praise”
Isaiah 59:19b says. “When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.” (KJV)
What encouragement these words can bring! Many times in life we feel “flooded” by the trials and hardships we are enduring. But knowing that we have a God that cares for us and will help us brings comfort and courage.
This is worded alittle differently in the New International Version of the Bible. Here it says that the enemy will come like a ‘pent-up flood”. That’s pretty strong! But the next phrase says that God’s breath drives it along or puts it to flight!
Praise be to such an all-powerful God! He never leaves us to fight battles on our own, He never forgets us or deserts us. His very breath is mightier than any thing the devil might throw at us and He stands ready to help us when we call on Him!
