Memory Monday – Week 72

All of us will face spiritual warfare. Whether or not we are aware of it is a whole different topic. There is so much truth in the Word specific to the trials we face and the battles we will fight in. The reality is that we will face many trials throughout our lifetime, but the truth of the Word tells us in Isaiah 54:17 that no weapon that is formed against us will prosper.

No attack against us or against God can be truly successful. Yes, we will face trials. Yes, we will face opposition. Yes, we will be attacked. So what does this verse mean? Sometimes, the Lord will remove the enemy before he even gets to us, and sometimes the Lord allows the enemy to attack, but brings something great out of the pain.

This verse doesn’t mean that no weapon will be formed. It doesn’t give us a free pass out of facing spiritual warfare. Satan uses weapons against us every day. He might whisper doubts in your ear, he might exaggerate in your mind what your husband said to you to cause a fight – there is a long list of stuff he loves to do. He is very deceitful and is always ready to steal, kill, and destroy.  But, remember the Lord has power over the devil. Death was already defeated when Jesus rose from the dead. 

When we are in Christ, victory is ours. The devil is under God’s hand and no matter what we face we can trust that God will prosper in our situation, not the enemy. We are promised that He will fight the battles with us and He will always win. Speak truth and life over any areas that the enemy is trying to attack so that you and Jesus have the final word over your situation. No weapon that is formed against you will prosper.

    There is so much going on in the spirit world around us. The atmosphere is charged with evil, and we are surely wrestling with all of the things mentioned in Ephesians 6. I have often wondered just what all we would see, could we pull back the curtain and peer into the spirit world. I think we would be flabbergasted at the onslaught of activity in the enemy’s evil camp. Thank God, we are more than conquerors through HIM that loves us and greater is He Who is in us than he that is in the world. Our Champion has never lost a battle, and if we allow Him to do the fighting, we are automatic winners every time. 🙂 The key is in letting Him do the fighting…not always easy, when we are so tempted to take things into our own hands and fight with carnal weapons. Praying for you and sending much love to you, dear friend.

    we talked about spiritual warfare in church yesterday, and specifically about Romans, how suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. even when we do experience spiritual warfare, something beautiful comes from it – empathy, understanding, vulnerability, and, hopefully, a greater opportunity to experience God’s love <3

    Spiritual warfare certainly seems very real lately, but this is such a good reminder that God is over it all.

    This is great! I’m always faced with the question from others: Why does God let bad things happen to good people?” The only honest response that I can give is that God is sovereign. He knows what’s going on. He knows that sometimes we have to go through some pain to come closer to knowing Him. Such a beautiful reminder today!

    “Satan uses weapons against us every day. He might whisper doubts in your ear, he might exaggerate in your mind what your husband said to you to cause a fight – there is a long list of stuff he loves to do.”

    Did you write this for me. I have those whispers of doubt frequently and I just to feelings rather than prayer very quickly.

    This has blessed me today.

    Thank you friend.
