Isaiah 54:17 says…
“But in that coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the Lord; their vindication will come from me. I, the Lord, have spoken!”
I’m feeling especially passionate about writing this because there are some real spiritual weapons that have been turned against individuals (real people) in my church, and I’m pretty frustrated with it lately because I consider my church to be my FAMILY.
I’m going take a few paragraphs to CALL OUT the weapons, and then declare Gods word over our church family because his word says NO WEAPON will succeed.
You may be reading this and seriously feel some of these weapons have been turned against YOU lately. I want you to know I HAVE YOUR BACK!!! And so does a whole crew of people who love you and want Gods best for you.
So…hold your head up sons & daughters…
The weapons of despair & discouragement will NOT win BECAUSE He who began a good work in you WILL carry it on to completion (Philippians 1:6.)
The weapons of confusion and disillusionment will NOT succeed against you because God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of love, peace, and a sound mind! (2 Timothy 1:7)
The weapons of jealousy and contempt will NOT prosper against you because you will choose to love others, even your enemies, and take delight in honoring and CELEBRATING them!! (Romans 12:10)
The weapons of isolation and insignificance will NOT win! You may feel like you’ve been overlooked because some of Gods promises in your life seem to be coming up short, but hold on to Jesus because in Him all the promises of God are yes & amen!! (2 Corinthians 1:20)
Don’t you realize that HE MADE YOU SIGNIFICANT when He formed you in your mothers’ womb? You ARE valuable, cherished & SEEN by God! (Psalm 139)
The weapons of fear and anxiety will NOT win because you know that God is WITH you(Joshua 1:9), he is FOR you (Romans 8:31), and he is a Good Father! (Matthew 7:11)
The weapons of bitterness and unforgiveness will not prevail because we ourselves are children of grace, and Jesus sincerely forgave us w/o expecting anything in return. The same spirit that is in Jesus also resides in YOU! (Romans 8:11)
My hope for you is that you’ll REALIZE that in Christ, YOU ARE A WEAPON. You are the Lord’s battle axe & sword (Jeremiah 51:20) HE has you firmly in His grasp, wielding you for His purposes…
So…RISE UP and be who God has called you to be…do the things you know He has put in your heart to do…rely on HIM!!! He is more powerful than anything, anyone or any weapons that are turned on you…
Another battle-worn Axe,
