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.”
There are so many people, circumstances and situations that stand before us in 2016 to hinder us from achieving our goals. It is most important for us to remember that we are not on this 2016 journey alone. Many times those who are closest to us for whatever reason discourage us the most. In addition, circumstances work against us for reasons we don’t understand. But the key to our success and achievement in 2016 is that we recognize the fact that the Lord is always with us. A song says “He promised never to leave us, never to leave us alone.” Another song says ” He walks with me and He talks with me and He tells me I am his own; And the joys we share as we tarry there, none other has ever known.” So proceed with your plans for 2016. Don’t get discouraged by your lack of progress to date. Proceed with your plans, the standard has been set, the Lord is with you. Regardless of what has transpired to date, it is essential that you recognize this fact; ” when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard.” He will protect you, He will keep you, He won’t let you fall. So Proceed with your 2016 plans.
