No Weapon

Isaiah 54: 17 weapon forged against you will prevail,and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me," declares the LORD.

What tries to destroy you?
My emotions usually lead the attack. My eating takes their lead. My faith grows weak. I get tired of praying and try to just gut it out. I start fighting my own battles without deciding to.
I'm in a warfare state of mind this week. It came over me Sunday morning and I welcomed it. The righteous anger of realizing that satan has dared to try to come against me finally rose up inside of me. Fear got pushed so far into the background that it disappeared. My God is mighty to save.
I am standing, speaking and living the word of the Lord in bold letters this week. There is no need to add anything to them. I spend too much time trying to figure things out when it's already been written, in the Bible and across my soul.
NO WEAPON formed against me will prevail.
I am bullet-proof.
Hell can give whatever it's got. I am in Christ so I'll tell you what, those who want to hurt me or mine; disease that tries to settle in and define our future; doubt that tries to steal our have just been given notice.
Bring it.

YES!! I'm shouting over here!!! The enemy is cowering and being stomped under your feet even as you (we) praise the name of the Lord!!
Great verse from Terry too!

pray for me because evil forces want no person with Christian values working in the Mayor's administration. That "destroyer" is coming after me at work through viscious people with power.

I am praying for you. I always think that when something big is going to happen, satan just tries to stop it, but Jeremy once said that if we are walking in God's plan, hell itself can't stop it, so stay strong. God is always abound.

Sing it with me:

Everyone needs compassion
Love that’s never failing
Let mercy fall on me
Everyone needs forgiveness
The kindness of a Saviour
The hope of nations

He can move the mountains
For my God is mighty to save
He is mighty to save
Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave

So take me as You find me
All my fears and failures
Fill my life again
I give my life to follow
Everything I believe in
Now I surrender

Let Your light shine
Let the whole world see
We’re singing
For the glory of the risen King
