Isaiah 54:17

August 26, 2019

No weapon that is fashioned against you shall succeed, and you shall refute every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and their vindication from me, declares the Lord.


Devotional Thoughts

By David Wilkerson

Everything Satan tries in order to get you down just won’t work! Those big guns aimed at you will melt away in the presence of the Lord.

In the original Hebrew, this verse is translated as: “No plan, no instrument of destruction, no satanic artillery shall push you or run over you, but it will be done away with.” God has promised to wreck Satan’s attack upon you. The reward of those who diligently seek Him is the privilege of becoming more than conquerors. “In all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us” (Roman 8:37).

For 365 years, Enoch shook off every fiery dart. He was living in total victory until his last breath. He did not crawl out nor did he limp out—he went out in a blaze of life and glory! “By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God” (Hebrews 11:5).

“In righteousness you shall be established; You shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear; And from terror, for it shall not come near you. Indeed they shall surely assemble, but not because of Me. Whoever assembles against you shall fall for your sake” (Isaiah 54:14-15).

Where there is righteousness, there is peace. You will be delivered from oppression and fear, for there will be no harm to those who walk righteously. “I have created the waster to destroy” (Isaiah 54:16). Even “the spoiler” is under the Lord’s control. God has control over all destructive weapons. Our security is in righteousness, in walking with Jesus, and we are to fear absolutely nothing!
