God's Exclamation Points - Part 7
"No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is from Me," says the LORD. Isaiah 54:17, NKJV
This week, we are still camping out on some of God’s exclamation points—His "shout-outs" to us. One biggie is the amazing truth of righteousness. When we are established in the righteousness God gives us, something happens! Besides all of the other perks we’ve been talking about, here are a few more benefits that belong to us through God’s gift of righteousness:
No Weapon Formed Against You Shall Prosper: Anyone trying to come against you unjustly? With words? Lawsuits? Editorials? Manipulation? Game playing? Deception? It will not prosper! You can rest in that. If God is for you, who can be against you? No one can curse whom God has blessed. Your righteousness is from the Lord, says the Lord!
Every Tongue Which Rises Against You in Judgment You Shall Condemn: Anyone wagging their tongue against you? You can condemn it! Usually the loudest mouth of negativity belongs to the devil. He’s the accuser of the believer. He’s the one who throws the biggest jab of guilt, condemnation, rejection and disapproval towards us. If we listen to his voice, we will find ourselves joining in his chant and the next thing you know we are singing the blues and self-deprecating. When Satan (or anyone else) comes against you with judgment—you can condemn every word by reminding him (and them) and yourself that you are the righteousness of God in Christ. Their words of judgment mean nothing, hold nothing, amount to nothing, are nothing and will not prosper because you are loved, accepted, approved, forgiven, called, bought, taught and righteous according to the Lord God Almighty! Your righteousness is of the Lord. Jesus did not come to condemn you, but to save you through His rich mercy, grace and love.
Today, remember that no weapon formed against you can prosper, and no tongue that rises against you will be successful. Don’t allow Satan to prosecute you with accusation and deception, but instead rise up in the power of the Holy Spirit, your great advocate and defense attorney, and be strong in His righteousness!
“…the righteous are as bold as a lion.” (Proverbs 28:1, NIV)
Say It: “Father, I thank You that my righteousness is from You! Thank You for this great gift and the boldness I can have in knowing that no weapon formed against me shall prosper. Every tongue that rises against me in judgment, I will condemn…thanks to You! Thank You, Lord. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
