No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgement thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.” (Isaiah 54:17).
What a precious promise we have in this passage of God’s Word and what a wonderful peak of salvation. How many of us have suffered and are unhappy because of somebody standing against us. Sometimes the weapons are from our own family, our own mother, brother, sister or neighbour. They try to bring many things against us.
Others will speak ill and do damage against those who want to grow spiritually and obey God’s word but we have a promise in Isaiah 54:17. It does not matter what kind of weapon enemy uses, whether letters, false stories, scandals (which are a special ministry with some people, and a pleasure to them), God in His Word says: “No weapon that is formed against you, shall prosper”. Yes, even the tongue weapon—it will be condemned. This is the inheritance of the servants of the Lord, those who have become righteous in the sight of God. Keep on saying, “I believe in Isaiah 54:17.” Say it by faith, for this is God’s treatment for you; He is the living God and whatsoever He says He will do, Numbers. 11:23; 23:19. There is no need for us to defend ourselves, but only to believe in the promise of Isaiah 54:17.
We fully believe the wonderful promise in Isaiah 54:17. As long as we are in Him, He will defend us. God will keep us. He will not allow any weapon of any kind to prosper against us provided we go on praising and trusting Him and claiming His promises.
