No Weapon Formed Against You Shall Prosper

We wake up each morning with an idea of what our day will be like. For a normal work weekday, if you have a job, you will get ready and either travel to work by car, train, or whatever mode of transportation you take to work or if you work from home, you go to your workstation and start your day. You do whatever task is set for the day, finish at your normal closing time, travel back home or finish for the day at home and leave your work area and then get ready for the next day.

However, you have no conception of the unexpected things that could happen during the day. You become ill, you hear bad news, just imagine what could go wrong. When this happens, your first reaction is what is going on, what on earth happened? Everything was going so well today; this has just completely blindsided me. This continues until you get yourself into a state of anxiety, panic and you are no longer calming yourself.

But we have a God, who says that He will never leave us nor forsake us, He knows the end from the beginning and has a plan and purpose for our lives no matter what we face each day. When we have our eyes fixed on Jesus, we can be at peace, not the world’s peace, where all is calm and serene, but the peace and assurance of knowing that with Jesus on our side, interceding on our behalf, we will come through the circumstance we are facing. It may be immediate, it may be in a day, a week, a month, a year or maybe longer but God will see us through. He is our sure foundation.

So, I encourage you with this verse in Isaiah 54:17 ESV that no matter what you are facing know this…..

No weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed, and you shall refute every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and their vindication from me, declares the Lord.
