“…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.” Isaiah 54:17
Father God, what an awesome way to begin this new calendar year of 2016. An awesome promise from an awesome God!!! A promise so rich, our confidence and sense of security soars to the Heavens! NO weapon; whether of bombs, or guns. or acts of terrorism; NO weapon formed against believers will succeed. The Isis terrorist are defeated before they even begin. NO words; whether the words of Putin and his desire to destroy us, or the words of Isis in their desire to terrorize us, or the words of the enemies of faith and their desire to diminish us; NO words spoken shall go unrefuted! This is not only our heritage, an absolute guarantee of linage that no one can take away, it is our vindication, that sweet sense that right is might and cannot be overrun. What a way to begin what the world calls its first day of a new year. Yet even here, we win, because You win! We don’t have to wait for the calendar to turn to be vindicated or to be given a victory, or even to get a fresh start, because with You Father, everyday is a new day of victory! To You be all the glory! In Jesus Name, Amen.
