No weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me," declares the LORD.
God reminded me this verse few days back while I was dealing with a situation that came upon me very unexpectedly. Satan tries to play tricks on us through accusations, negative feelings and hurtful words. But the more we spent time thinking about the hurt and the reason behind it, the more painful the hurt becomes and it will remain in our heart like a deep wound. Be careful with such deep wounds, because they produce scars which will not only affect your physical life, but deeply bothers your spiritual life.
But things turn out to be totally different when you take your hurts to the Lord. Its quite natural to think about all possible ways to solve the problem and correct the accusations that raise against us. But often times, our frantic efforts to convince others about our good conscience end up in more hurts, confusions and misunderstandings. So in these days, God has been teaching me to stand back and wait for God to intervene for me and it has worked the best every time I tried that. As long as you are right and pure in your conscience, God will fight your battles for you…just stand back and see your deliverance.
Have you read the above verse carefully? It doesn’t say that no weapons or accusations will come against the servant of God. Instead, it says that no tricks of the enemy will prevail against you. Nothing that come against you will overcome and overrule you. Why? Only because of your position in Christ Jesus. If you are a servant of God, then you are eligible for this authority. Its a heritage and vindication from the Lord for being the servant of the Most High. What a great privilege!!
Next time, when you sense the enemy trying to attack you through others, circumstances and all kinds of negative emotions, try not to jump into conclusions and decisions to pay back in full….stand back and see the vindication of God working in favor of you. When satan tries to knock at your door, stand back and send Jesus to open it for you. There is an authority in being still and standing back….because the one who has given us this authority to be His child is in control and He will handle this much better than you. Remember its your heritage and your vindication from the Lord that no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. So take your positions and see the deliverance. Stand still and Let Him fight your battles.
