“You unhappy one, storm-tossed and troubled, I am ready to rebuild you with precious stones and embed your foundation with sapphires. I will make your towers of rubies, your gates of sparkling jewels, and all your walls of precious, delightful stones. All your children will be taught by Yahweh, and great will be their peace and prosperity. You will be established in righteousness.
Oppression—be far from them!
Fear—be far from them!
Yes, terror will not come near you, nor will you be afraid.
If anyone dares to stir up strife against you, it is not from me! Those who challenge you will go down in defeat. See, I am the one who created the craftsman who fans the coals into a fire and forges a weapon fit for its purpose, and I am the one who created the destroyer to destroy.
But I promise you, no weapon meant to hurt you will succeed, and you will refute every accusing word spoken against you. This promise is the inheritance of Yahweh’s servants, and their vindication is from me,” says Yahweh. Isaiah 54:11-17 Passion Translation
This is yet another piece of the covenant promises over my children that I have spoken over them for years. As I read it again in this translation, I decided to share it because some of you moms, dads and grandparents need to be speaking this to your family when they call you afraid.
When I feel the least bit of anxiety of fear try to creep in and raise it’s ugly head, I address it like this: My Father said fear will be far from us, so don’t try to show your face here, you’re not welcome here! Oppression, go! Worry, go! Anxious thoughts, go! My God will supply all my need, not some of my needs, not a few of my needs but ALL! So I cast the care of it back over to the Lord and I stand, firmly grounded on the Solid Rock of my Salvation.
You can ask anyone who knows me, I absolutely refuse to believe anything that opposes the Word of God. I don’t care what fancy words you try to use to describe how you feel, feelings have to change, they are subject to the Word of God. You can label it PTSD, but it can’t stand up to the Word of God. You can call it cancer, still has to bow to the Word of God. It could be congestive heart failure, still no match for the Word of God.
God sent His Word and healed you and delivered you from ALL disease. If it has a name, it’s under the blood. God made accommodations for everything that would try to come against you. Even this virus is subject to the Word of God.
Let’s read that last verse again: “But I promise you, no weapon meant to hurt you will succeed, and you will refute every accusing word spoken against you. This promise is the inheritance of Yahweh’s servants, and their vindication is from me,” says Yahweh.
That seals the deal right there. Even if the virus is leveled against me, it can’t succeed. Trust me, I’ve been accused of being too literal, being too radical, not following the ‘rules’ but let me tell you this, I believe that God’s Word is the final say and Jesus said I could have whatever I believe. I’d rather believe God who I know, then you who I don’t.
About 3 years ago, the Lord told me there was coming a time when a chasm of division would open up between those who believe and those who don’t. Those who trust and believe in the power of God and those who only use God when they need Him. Let that not be you. It’s time to believe with everything in you. It may not be popular, you may loose friends, people will laugh at you and you may doubt your decision, but know this, when the time comes, you will refute every accusing word spoken against you.
That’s a Promise,
