“Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake. Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy. No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.” ~ Isaiah‬ ‭54‬:‭15‬-‭17‬ ‭KJV‬‬

The moment I woke up this morning, this verse was the first thing that came to my mind. God is wanting to tell someone that although the weapon may be forged, it may be aimed and fired at you… it will not penetrate you. Although people may rise up and speak against you, those words will not prosper and you will see them condemned. In fact, the words they use against you will be the very thing that defeats them. Stand up! Be strong and vigilant for you will win this fight! The Lord has gone before you to prepare the way. Walk with courage and boldness in the presence of the Lord.

Scripture: Isaiah 41:10 // 1 Peter 5:8 // Deuteronomy 31:8 // Joshua 1:9

Battles — they are at every turn. When you are coming out of one situation, then here comes another. That is the ebb and flow of life. When the battles seem non-stop, they can just wear you out. You feel like you are on the defense all the time. You become weary in well doing and at moments, feel like giving up.

There are times in life when we are left standing and in some cases, you are standing alone. But Jesus tells us that, “my strength is made perfect in weakness”. So when you feel like giving up… just stand. Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord! He will come through for you just like He did the children of Israel. And the best part… your enemies will be “no more”!

Scripture Reference: 1 Corinthians 15:58; Galatians 6:9; 2 Corinthians 12:9-11; Exodus 14:13-14

In continuation of the weights the enemy places upon us, today I want to talk about “Shame”. Shame is described as a painful feeling of humiliation or distress caused by the consciousness of wrong or foolish behavior. Shame comes solely from Satan. He brings it upon you through other people or directly from himself.

Once you have asked the Lord and those you’ve hurt for forgiveness of your sins, move on with your life. Isaiah 53 reveals what Jesus bore on the cross for you and I. He did it so we wouldn’t have to. He made a way for us to be free from sin and shame, sorrow and grief.

Don’t allow the enemy to place shame on you. It’s a weight to cause you to feel like you aren’t good enough and you never will be good enough. If someone is whispering things to you that brings feelings of shame, don’t accept it! And rebuke Satan and tell him “shame doesn’t live here anymore”!
