… 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….
–Isaiah 54:17 NIV
God’s Word promises that no weapon formed against you shall prosper. A weapon is any tool meant for destruction. Since the enemy’s purpose is to destroy, he uses different weapons against you. Anything can be a weapon—sickness or disease, financial struggles, stress, anxiety, accidents, people’s selfish or destructive attitudes, etc.
People can be weapons too. Have you experienced a person acting as a weapon against you? Have you been used as a weapon against someone else? Ask God to reveal if you’ve been the weapon and seek forgiveness from that person. If another’s attitude has been used against you, forgive and pray for the person, asking God for blessings. Forgiveness cleanses. Resentment erodes.
- Ask God to bring to your mind when the enemy is using a weapon against you.
- Pray that God will give you patience to deal with the attacks.
