There are concrete enforceable promises handed down by God to every believer in His Son Jesus Christ.
We are connected to a universal power that confounds every source of evil generated by our enemies (both spiritual as well as physical).
I wish I could convince more people of that critical information.
Listen to the prophet Isaiah today:
"But no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong. This [peace, righteousness, security, triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord [those in whom the ideal Servant of the Lord is reproduced]; this is the righteousness or the vindication which they obtain from Me [this is that which I impart to them as their justification], says the Lord."
That's especially for you today.
It's not just neat advice. It's your heritage of being a member of the family of God.
Perhaps you have heard the big lie generated in the camps of those who defy God and all that He stands for?
The lie is that we are all considered God's children
It's a smart campaign waged by Satan himself.
Nothing could be farther from the truth.
We are not ALL God's children. We are all God's creation, but those estranged to God by their own will and ways are not considered His children.
Only those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and have become born again are adopted into His family as co-heirs with Jesus to the riches of heaven.
That heritage also allows us to take advantage of what Isaiah speaks of.
No weapon formed against us will prosper. There will be weapons formed, but they will not be successful.
Slanderers and liars who seek to defame us will not be believed.
We will have peace in the midst of opposition.
We are justified and vindicated of all wrongdoing we have confessed to Him and have been washed as white as snow.
That's got to be good news for someone out there today!
If so, give it a hearty AMEN!
Keepin' it Real,
