God uses His Righteousness to shield and defend you against the conspiracies and confrontations of the enemy.
SCRIPTURE: 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 54:17.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God uses His Righteousness to shield and defend you against the conspiracies and confrontations of the enemy.
From our anchor Scripture, we understand that the righteousness of the children of God is of God. This means, God allocates His children His righteousness to defend them. This is another light that guarantees Divine preservation.
From our anchor Scripture, God is saying to you, “It is not your righteousness that I use to speak for you in the face of enemy confrontation; it is my own righteousness that the enemy can’t stand that I use.”
This means, in case the devil tells you that your commitment to God slacked a little sometime back, and so you deserve to be attacked; and the devil wants to capitalize on that to finish you, God says, “I will stand and tell the devil to give way. I will defend you with my righteousness. I loan you my righteousness. And since the devil cannot fight me, he cannot fight you. I am the One to determine your stand and not satan.”
Beloved, God uses His Righteousness to shield and defend you against the conspiracies and confrontations of the enemy. Your forefather may be an idol worshipper who might have made some demonic covenants in the past that are affecting you today; but the truth is, if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature. God spreads His righteousness on you to defend you.
My counsel is, do not place your faith in your own right. Place your faith in the Mercy of God alone because the mercy of God is our helpline in the earth and our lifeline throughout eternity.
Remember this: God uses His Righteousness to shield and defend you against the conspiracies and confrontations of the enemy.
1. Place your faith in the righteousness of God.
2. Ask God to defend you in the face of conspiracies and confrontations of the enemy.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for Your word to me today. I place my faith in Your righteousness Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
