I confess this daily for me and mine – “No weapon formed against us will prosper” – but I don’t confess the other part of it.
How many times do we grab hold of a scripture and leave out the other part because we neglect to understand the connection?
God reminded me of that early this morning on my way to work.
Often times, we see weapons as something that can hurt us physically such as an accident, financial disaster or an attack that touches our stuff.
However, we leave out the words or judgment people make against us such as rumors, lies or words that attack our character or motives.
Those too are weapons that God is talking about in this scripture.
So for those people who have spread rumors about you, lied about you or spoken words that attacked your character or motive – there’s a promise for them! God said, “YOU” will condemn or refute them.
Therefore, God has already given you the solution to this problem. He has given you the power to handle them. BUT – it’s not with your words or physical strength.
It will be by your action of right standing with God, it’s by your consistency, it’s by your righteous living, it’s by your patience, and it’s by your willingness to stand!
Oh, you thought it was going to be immediate or without any effort on your part – NOPE! Sorry.
God has an answer to every problem and a way of escape for every situation, but He also is a God of order and process.
We want it NOW – hold on! You will be vindicated (proven right) in the matter because it is a promise from God to you!
