Commentary by Pastor Michael White:

“When the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him” (Is 59:19). A standard is a banner: a piece of propaganda that reveals your identity. God is telling us that when the enemy attacks us with all his might, God will fight on our behalf. He will advertise that He is fighting for us, and the enemy will run in the other direction. You do not need to fight Satan on your own. Jesus Christ has already defeated him in battle; our privilege is simply to rest in the finished work of the Cross! Let God fight your battles for you, and rest in the victory He has already won!


Father, thank You for fighting for me! You always use Your heavenly resources on my behalf. Help me to remember that I don’t have to try and win any battle with Satan on my own. You’ve already won the victory!
