No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; and every tongue that accuses you in judgement you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their vindication is from Me,” declares the LORD.
-Isaiah 54:17 (NIV)
Thoughts on Today’s Verse
Our assurance rests on the sure promises of our all-powerful God, Who reminds us throughout His Word that He is sovereign – His is the power and the kingdom and the glory, and no enemy of His church will prevail against His chosen ones. Whatever insidious devices are constructed and whatever devious schemes are formed against the people of God, their plans will fall and their instruments of war will fail. We must never fear those that can only war against our bodies, which like the grass-of-the-field is here for one brief moment in the history of eternity. Rather we must rejoice in the knowledge that our eternal souls are secure in Christ;
that He knows every step we take; that He plans every circumstance of life to our eternal good and that the angel of His presence encamps around all Who are His.. Let us depend on the Word of truth for His protection from all danger. Let us rest on the assurances of His presence in every one of life’s difficult situations. Let us remain confident in His superlative promises of grace, which are the heritage of the saints – for the tongues that rise up in accusation against the people of God will one day be silenced forever at His Great White throne of judgement… “and they will know that I have loved you…”
Thank You Father that there is nothing in the physical or spiritual realm that can triumph over me and that I am secure, in Christ, against every accusation of the enemy. Help me never to fear those that seek me harm, but rather to be a faithful witness of Your steadfast grace in the place where You have put me. In Christ’s name I pray. AMEN
