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.” – Isaiah 54:17-18 (ESV)
That verse came to me while I was praying last night. I haven’t read or heard it years. But, having been reminded of Isaiah 54:17, I want to share three great reminders this reminder brought to mind:
1. God is in control of everything. Therefore, being His children, we have no reason to fear anything. There is no place too dark, no enemy too ferocious, no cavern too deep for God. The Lord created everything. That means He knows all of creation intimately – even when the enemy twists and misuses God’s creation to try to trip us up.
2. There is great power in reading, studying and memorizing scripture. It you aren’t storing God’s Word in your heart, start doing it. Now. Today. You’ll be amazed at what – and when – the Lord reminds you of just what you need to know.
3. Simply trust in the Lord. Place your whole faith in Him and trust in His strength. His wisdom. His love, mercy and grace. Don’t worry about the outcome. Do what God says, follow Jesus with your whole heart, and never stop seeking Him first.
God bless you today and always!
