No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn(Isaiah 54:17).

Often, we see Christians who arent enjoying their lives, and theyre not sure what the problem is. Some point to human enemies as the cause of their misfortune: My enemies must be at work, they grumble. They even start praying against their perceived enemies. Such Christians are in the wrong place; theyre not living in the Word of God.

We read in our opening verse that no weapon formed against you shall prosper. So, if the weapons formed against a Christian are prospering, then something is wrong! When the plans of the enemy are actually working against you, its not because the weapons are too strong; and its not God thats unable to do something about your situation. The problem is, youre wrongly positioned.

Recall what the Lord said to the children of Israel when the death angel was coming to town; He said, when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you (Exodus 12:23). The death angel came to destroy, but the children of Israel were preserved. All they needed to do was to stay inside their houses. As long as they stayed indoors of the blood-marked house, it didnt matter the danger outside; they were preserved!

So, stay where youre supposed to bein the Word; in Christ! Thats the environment of safety, preservation and victory. When you live in, and by, the Word, youll always be triumphant. Christianity is so simple. The life of victory in Christ is very simple. Jesus said, Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock (Matthew 7:24-25).

Make the Word your dwelling place; be a doer of the Word, and youll always win.



CONFESSION

Ive overcome the world, the devil and the forces of hell, because Im a product of the incorruptible Word of God, which lives and abides forever. Im seated with Christ in the heavenly realmsa place of authority, victory, safety and deliverancefar removed from all earthly distractions. Halleluiah!

Further Study: || James 1:22-25 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: 24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. ||

|| Luke 11:28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it. ||

|| Psalm 91:1-2 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. ||
