We’ve been taught that, “When it rains, it pours.” We’ve been taught to expect the worst and to often lay down and take it when the enemy attacks. We’ve been taught to turn and run when darkness comes. to look the other away when injustice strikes. But when will we believe God and stand up? When will we say like those Hebrew young men to King Nebuchadnezzar after he threatened to have them burned alive, “…We don’t need to defend ourselves. The God we worship can save us from you and your flaming furnace. But even if He doesn’t, we still won’t worship your gods and the gold statue you have set up.” (Daniel 3:16-18). When we say, “Whether God delivers only my soul or both soul and body… we are believing what the Word says, "No weapon formed against you shall prosper…." (Isaiah 54:17)
The truth is, the verse is written with the assumption that if you are walking in the will of God, that there will be weapons formed against you. You will fight obstacles. And you will have to overcome darkness. I am a living witness to this! In the middle of this unprecedented time in The Sanctuary, in my pursuit of my Masters Degree and to expand our business, I have had many arrows and fiery darts thrown to discourage and numerous snares set to destroy. And despite the schemes, I am advancing with a fury that is transforming lives.
You will not face opposition if you’re heading in the opposite direction of the enemy.
If you’re not a threat, you’re not a target.
So, what do you do when attacked?
But importantly remember that,
"Our Father is not a man that should lie, if He said it, it will come to pass" (Numbers 23:19).
So don't be afraid and don't you shrink back, you stand your ground because
"No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that rises up against you, He shall condemn." (Isaiah 54:17)
