Today, I thought of the scripture in Isaiah 59:19, it says when the enemy comes in that God will lift up a standard against him on your behalf.
That word enemy is defined as a narrow, tight place, place of distress, hard place. Does any of this sound familiar? I don’t think it is any coincidence that the Bible tells us that those who find the way to life, it is a narrow path. Matthew 7:14 tells us that the place to life is narrow and few find it, that’s because most give up along the way when the enemy comes to weary them.
Oh, I know it is hard to press on, trust me, I have been there, but I promise you, if you just lean into Him, His grace will bring you through.
