Isaiah 54:17 NKJV
No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their righteousness is from Me,” Says the Lord.
Life is full of battles. The Christian journey is full of opposition. Jesus said that in this world we would face trials and tribulation. Jesus never promised that once you started following Him that you would be problem free.
Therefore the devil will from time to time throw temptation and all sort of challenges in your direction. The devil will also use all sorts of people and situations to try and get you to lose your focus and destroy your relationship with God.
However God promises that “no weapon formed against you shall prosper”.
The enemy might try to inflict emotional, spiritual, physical or financial pain on your life. You may feel the effects (because God does not promise a problem-free life) but God says that these effects will NOT PROSPER over your life.
Ephesian 6:10-11 NKJV
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
In order to overcome the tricks and attacks of the devil, you need to be strong in the Lord.
You must also put on the WHOLE armor of God which consists of
1. The belt of truth
2. The breastplate of righteousness
3. Shedding your feet with the gospel of peace
4. The shield of faith
5. The helmet of salvation
6. The sword of the Spirit which is the word of God
In Christ, we are equipped to overcome and be victorious over the enemy. The Christian life is full of battles, but we have the victory in Christ Jesus. God has given us spiritual weapons to defend ourselves and to defeat the enemy.
Today and everyday. Remember that no weapon formed against you will prosper and make sure you are always wearing the full armor of God.
