Isaiah 54:17 No weapon formed against you shall prosper, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their righteousness is from Me,” Says the Lord.

When most people read this scripture, a lot of people think about physical weapons such as guns and knives or the weapons of our enemies such as, slander and lies. However, this scripture also includes mental weapons from Satan himself.

Satan uses different weapons to mentally attack us out of God’s promises. For instance, one weapon is intimidation. Satan will attempt to intimidate us out of our promise. He’ll tell us we’re unqualified or unworthy to receive God’s blessings. Another weapon is delay. While we’re waiting on our promise, the devil will attempt to make us think delay means denial. Another weapon is pride. He’ll make us think we’re too good to humble ourselves before God or submit to our spouses. All of these weapons are designed to withhold God’s best from our lives.

Regardless of the weapon, it won’t prosper. The great thing about Satan’s weapons is we’re in control. If we can identify them when he strikes, we can use our faith to destroy them. We don’t have to wait until the situation changes. We can do it now. Every weapon formed against us, including Satan’s, won’t prosper.

2 Corinthians 2:11 Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.
