Isaiah 54:17, "No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgement you shall condemn...and their righteousness if from ME..." You see, it is when we know that our righteousness is from the LORD that no weapon formed against us will prosper, and every tongue of accusation will fail! GOD wants us to use our faith to believe that even when we fail, HE still justifies the ungodly and makes us righteous. This is Grace! It is easy to confess our righteousness when all is well. But what about the times we fail, get tempted, make a mistake or get depressed? This is when the evil-one (who is the "accuser of our brethren", Revelation 12:10) will come against us and scream accusatory thoughts of condemnation in our ears: "You call yourself a Christian"? Do you really think GOD will hear your prayer this time? My friend this is the time to start speaking your righteousness, and no weapon form will prosper against you. We should put our faith in HIS unmerited favor instead of our works. Being righteous is not based on our perfect performance; it is based on HIS perfect work. We are to use our faith to believe that we are righteous by faith. We will live an overcoming and victorious life. YES, I CALL MYSELF A CHRISTIAN, IN THE NAME OF JESUS, GO BEHIND ME SATAN!
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
