“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.
If you are familiar with today’s verse, you’ll know that believers usually quote only the first part: “No weapon formed against you shall prosper.”
Now, do you want to know the secret to unleashing this promise of protection, and walking fully in your inheritance in Christ?
It is actually right there in the second part of the verse: “‘…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.”
You see, it’s when you know that your righteousness is from the Lord that no weapon formed against you will prosper, and every tongue of accusation, judgment and condemnation that rises against you will fail!
Use your faith every day to believe that you are indeed righteous in Christ, and that this righteousness is of the Lord’s doing, not your own doing. This is how no weapon formed against you shall prosper. This is how you live an overcoming and victorious life!
Don’t allow others to speak condemnation, judgment or accusation into your life.
When someone says to you, “You’ll probably have breast cancer because your mother and her mother had it.” Or “That looks like arthritis in your hands.” Or “You’ll never amount to anything.” All these words, and I’m sure you’ve heard many like them, are passing judgment and condemning you to a life of pain, failure and premature death.
They are words of death to a person that doesn’t understand they are the righteousness of God. Do you see now why you need to be aware of who you are in Christ?
The enemy has many weapons in his arsenal that are trying to take you out and bring you down. Even well meaning Christians will speak death words not realizing the power their mouth has to create strongholds upon those not fully understanding their position in the family of God.
I like to tell people that once you’re born into the family of God, you no longer suffer from anything your earthly family has suffered from. If God doesn’t have it, and Jesus can’t catch it, then why would you think you’d suffer from it? To be righteous conscious is to fully understand that “As He is, so are you in this world!”
