Word Study For Today: Matthew 25:14-30.
Devotion: IT SHALL NOT HAPPEN, IT SHALL NOT STAND.
Texts: Esther 3:1-13; 5: 9-4; 6:7-10 | Isaiah 54:11-17. | Job 5:19-27.
God has declared categorically that no attack launched against you is ever from Him. He is a loving Father who will never set up His righteous Children for harm. > Isaiah 54:15a==> “If any nation comes to fight you, it is not because I sent them…”[NLT].
“If anyone fiercely attacks you it will not be from Me…”[AMP].
The Bible even says in James 1:13(NIV) ==>“When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone;”
If God won’t tempt a man, how then can He attack His own righteous? Hell is the orchestrator of evil. >“Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.”[1 Peter 5:8 NLT].
The assignment of the enemy is to seek destruction for God’s people. He takes delight in their pain. He wants no good for them. >Isaiah 54:15a(KJV)==>
“Behold, they shall surely gather together…
They surely(certainly, definitely) shall gather. You need not offend them, you need not step on their toes, you need not cross their boundary lines, yet they will gather against you as a believer. Your stand for God is your qualifying factor for enmity. It’s expedient for every one in right standing with God to expect a launch of the enemy’s attack. Don’t live careless but don’t live fretful either. The Lord said >“No weapon that is formed against you will succeed; And every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn. This [peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And this is their vindication from Me,” says the LORD.”[Isaiah 54:17 AMP].
Hallelujah, rejoice beloved. There’s assurance that, no weapon formed to fight or harm you shall prosper. The armoury of the enemy shall fail, their plot will not succeed. >“Although they plot against you, their evil schemes will never succeed.”[Psalms 21:11 NLT].
As God’s own property, you need not worry about the scheming of the enemy. >4)“Tell him to stop worrying. Tell him he doesn’t need to fear the fierce anger of those two burned-out embers, King Rezin of Syria and Pekah son of Remaliah. 5)Yes, the kings of Syria and Israel are plotting against him, saying, 6)‘We will attack Judah and capture it for ourselves. Then we will install the son of Tabeel as Judah’s king.’ 7)But this is what the Sovereign Lord says: “This invasion will never happen; it will never take place;”[Isaiah 7:4-7 NLT].
The plot of the wicked will NEVER happen!
The word of God gives further assurance:
>19)“From six calamities he will rescue you; in seven no harm will touch you. 20)In famine he will deliver you from death, and in battle from the stroke of the sword. 21)You will be protected from the lash of the tongue, and need not fear when destruction comes. 22)You will laugh at destruction and famine, and need not fear the wild animals.”[Job 5:19-22 NIV].
You will be duly protected by God, from the lashing of the tongue. When they rise up against you with their tongue rolling and reeling in judgement, it’s in you as given by grace, to silence the enemy’s voice raised up to accuse you. >“…You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the Lord; their vindication will come from me. I, the Lord, have spoken!”[Isaiah 54:17b NLT].
God is the high tower of the righteous. He is their defense; and that’s why boldly they can say no weapon formed against them shall ever prosper. They are assured that the evil and wickedness of the wicked shall bounce back upon them and they shall be utterly destroyed.
>21)“They band themselves together against the life of the righteous And condemn the innocent to death. 22)But the LORD has become my high tower and defense, And my God the rock of my refuge. 23)He has turned back their own wickedness upon them And will destroy them by means of their own evil; The LORD our God will wipe them out.”[Psalm 94:21-23 AMP].
In confidence the Psalmist declares >“When evil people come to devour me, when my enemies and foes attack me, they will stumble and fall.”[Psalms 27:2 NLT].
Are you in right standing with God? Are you on the Lord’s side? Then, know and note with every fibre of assurance that evil and wickedness of the enemy shall not prosper against you, for the scripture says so. Hallelujah!
