GOD HAS YOU ALL COVERED

“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 (KJV)
Beloved, God is saying here that He has you all covered. When the destroyer says he wants to destroy you, God says no weapon that has been formed against you will prosper. You will have an answer for your accusers. The scripture says in another translation, “this is your inheritance and your victory comes from God.” It means that you are not depending on your own strength or on any man but on the Almighty God. When God is elevating you, He can use anyone including your enemies. So, don’t be surprised when your adversity becomes a tool towards your advancement. I declare to you today that you will see God’s hand in any challenge you may be facing.
Joseph’s brothers thought they were stopping his dream by selling him. They didn’t know they were sending him forth into his destiny and to his next level. God ensured that the plans of Joseph’s brothers never prospered against him- the same brothers who wished him evil were the same men that advanced his destiny. Child of God, your Father is in control, He knows how to move things in your favour and give you pleasant surprises.
You must also understand that the battle you are involved in is a representative battle. God created Adam and put the whole of humanity in him and asked him to reproduce in His kingdom what God has put in him. But the enemy came and deceived Adam and Eve and separated them from God. As a result, every person born by them inherited that separation. But the devil did not have the final laugh; God was up to something. In the fullness of time, God released his joker through the second Adam, Jesus. Christ has defeated the devil in his own domain. This is why I know you will defeat every obstacle this year.
