There are three VERY important things to notice about Isaiah 54:17 which says, “No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that rises against you in judgement you shall condemn.” 🔎

1. The weapons WILL form against you,
2. But they shall not prosper (succeed, prevail, be effective)

Why?

3. Because every time a tongue rises against you in judgement (or tries to bring a case against you), YOU shall condemn it! (refute, answer, silence it!) ⛔️

Notice it’s us (not God) that has to do the “condemning”!

And HOW do we condemn the “tongues” that rise against us?

By answering them with what God says about us – with the Word of God! 📖

When a tongue rises against us and says, “You’re not healed, you’re sick! Feel that symptom?”, we condemn it with, “No! By His stripes I WAS healed! Sickness, get out in Jesus’ name!” (1 Peter 2:24)
⛔️ Result: The weapon of sickness and disease formed against your health cannot prosper!

When a tongues rises against us and says, “Your nation is going to hell in a hand basket. Look at all the evil and immorality that’s going on!”, we condemn it with, “I pray for our leaders and those in authority! They hear the voice of the Good Shepherd only and they run from the voice of a stranger! This nation is a righteous, Godly nation in Jesus’ name!” (2 Timothy 2:1-2, John 10:4-5)
⛔️ Result: The weapons of immorality and ungodliness formed against your nation cannot prosper!

When a tongue rises against us and says, “Be fearful! Be anxious! Worry about this! Stress about that!” we condemn it with, “I DO NOT have a spirit of fear, I have power, love, and a sound mind! I cast ALL of my care onto you Lord, because you care FOR me!” (2 Timothy 1:7, 1 Peter 5:7)
⛔️ Result: The weapon of fear formed against you cannot prosper!

It’s that simple! 🤗

God has given us His Word because it’s BY AGREEING WITH HIM and refusing to agree with the “tongue” that we escape the corruption, fear, disease and every other evil thing that is in the world (2 Peter 1:4) 📖

It doesn’t matter what “name” the weapon has that tries forms against us, it CANNOT PROSPER when we condemn it with the Word of God! 

That’s GOOD NEWS! 🙌🏼 #faithtalks
