“No weapon fashioned against you will prevail” (Isaiah 54:17).
This is a true statement. But, probably not in the way you are thinking.
This is a true statement because this has already happened. This is a true statement because this is already the reality.
When we read this statement, we hope that this is a true statement because we want our future to be successful, pain-free, trouble-free, suffering-free. We want our future to be filled with health and wealth.
But, that’s not what this verse promises. That’s not what the Bible promises.
This statement is true because of all that Jesus has already done for us on the cross. You see, the worst that could ever happen to us is not disease, failure, bankruptcy, or even death. The worst that could happen to us is eternal separation from God and his love.
But, because of what Jesus did for us on the cross, that can’t ever happen. Our status has already changed. We are no longer sinners. We are no longer separated from God and his love. We are already God’s sons and daughters. “Nothing can separate us from the love of God” (Romans 8:38).
Because this is already the reality for those who have received Jesus as Lord and Savior, nothing that happens today or in the days to come can change the truth of this statement.
God has already purchased the victory for us in his Son Jesus Christ. There is nothing the devil can do to separate us from this reality.
“No weapon fashioned against you will ever prevail.”
That is fantastic news. Thank God!
