The standard The Lord will lift against the enemy (devil) is not living standard nor education nor currency but holiness and righteousness.
If God lift your standard of living or currency, the enemy can still come and shake it off but he can never shake off the righteousness of God in you (“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7). The devil shook off the high living standard and wealth of Job but couldn’t shake the righteousness of God in Job.
“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.” Isaiah 59:19.
