SAY YE TO THE RIGHTEOUS: No Weapon Formed Against You Shall Prosper.

"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

God, in the text, is talking to people He calls His own, a people to whom His gift of righteousness has been delivered and signed. He declares that no weapon formed against them shall prosper. Whatever is fashioned, planned, or orchestrated against the righteous will fail. It's guaranteed by God Almighty.

This must give you, the believer, great boldness facing any battle arrayed against you by the enemy. You must know for certain that anyone who comes to eat up your flesh will stumble and fall. The Lord is your light and your salvation you should fear nothing. Though war may rise against you, it will all end in praise for you.

The children of Israel under King Jehoshaphat were one time surrounded by three armies and completely outnumbered. The king encouraged his people to pray with fasting to God who responded quickly to their cry for help through the prophet Hananiah. God stilled the people and told them not to be afraid for the battle was not theirs but the Lord's. 

The weapons of war fashioned against them failed dismally because God took over the battle. By the time the Jews arrived on the battlefield, only dead bodies filled the valley. The armies that were stacked against Israel attacked themselves and killed themselves because the weapons made against the righteous will not work.

The enemy should be warned never to fight the righteous. Even Saul of Tarsus was told by Jesus that it was hard for him to kick against the goads when he was fighting the church of Christ. Waging war against God's people is committing suicide.

Anyone who rolls a stone over a believer, the stone shall fall on him. He who digs a pit for a child of God shall fall therein. No weapon shall prosper against you. Goliath trusted that his heavy spear and might armor will deliver victory for the Philistines but the opposite happened because no weapon formed against the saints of God ever prospers.

The Lord through Isaiah adds, "...and every tongue that rises against you in judgement, you shall condemn" (Isaiah 54:17). Why? Because you have been declared not guilty in Christ. Those who plan to condemn you will themselves suffer the condemnation. What a blessing it is to be the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.

You are protected. Literally no gun, knife, or any deadly weapon shall by any means succeed to harm or kill you. You are a child of the living God and your Father in heaven has vowed that because of His righteousness credited to your account, no weapon formed against you shall prosper anywhere in the world. Hallelujah!


No weapon shall by any means succeed to harm me because I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.
