Topic: NO WEAPON MEANS NO WEAPON!
Isaiah 54:17 (KJV)
No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.
Every single word in Scripture is of great spiritual significance. If God says “No weapon…” it simply means, NO WEAPON! God Himself is subject to His Word, because He has exalted His Word above all His Name.
God says, “No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper..” It means, there’s nothing that is calculated against you that shall yield its intent. If this is the case, and that is the case, because Scripture cannot be broken; then, how come we sometimes shift blame on weapons from the enemy being the cause of our predicament. Since Adam and Eve, humankind is prone to shifting blame on others, rather than taking personal responsibility for the cause of our troubles. It’s undisputable the arrow is from the enemy, but if no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, then instead of looking for which enemy threw that weapon, we should rather examine ourselves to find out which door we might have opened for that weapon to prosper.
The enemy doesn’t have access unless we open the door; he cannot touch us except by our permission. No weapon simply means, no weapon! Let God be true, but every man a liar (Romans 3:4).
Stop shifting blame and start taking charge of your life by taking personal responsibility for where you might have found yourself. If you’re sincere, the Holy Spirit will help you to come out stronger and better!
