In today’s world, just about anything goes. This means that it is very important now, more than ever, to identify who you are and what you believe for yourself.
In other words, if you don’t establish your standard, one will be established for you. And for believers, we will see the enemy come in like a flood, during that time it is up to the people of God to raise up a standard against him.
Isaiah 59:19 (NKJV)
“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 comes in like a flood,
The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.”
Have you noticed that everyone has freedom of speech except for the people of God. Individuals are welcome to shout their disbelief and their right to choose from the rafters aloud, but the moment a Christian does so they are chastised for being judgmental. This new world order can be frightening at times, but I urge you brethren to not succumb to that fear, that fear which only comes from the enemy. That fear which he attempts to plant as a figment of your imagination. That fear which is not real, it’s not tangible until he convinces you to quit, until he convinces you to stop pursuing the vision that God has given you.
So raise the standard up! Understand that God always has your back! No matter what it looks like, no matter what it feels like! No matter what others are doing around you! Do not be deceived! For there may be many around you who are living beneath the standard, and are consequently falling by the wayside, but don’t you do it!
For the words in Psalm 91:7-8 (NKJV) read:
“7 A THOUSAND MAY FALL AT YOUR SIDE,
AND TEN THOUSAND AT YOUR RIGHT HAND;
BUT IT SHALL NOT COME NEAR YOU.
8 ONLY WITH YOUR EYES SHALL YOU LOOK,
AND SEE THE REWARD OF THE WICKED.”
Know that this is true. So there is nothing for you to be afraid of. But the only way you’ll truly understand what this means is if you….
STAY TAPPED INTO THE SOURCE!
Amen & God Bless!
