No weapon

Isaiah 54:17
“No weapon forged against you will prevail,
and you will refute every tongue that accuses you.
This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD,
and this is their vindication from me,”
declares the LORD.

This verse promises that no weapon formed against the child of God will prosper.
But that doesn’t mean the weapon won’t be formed against you.
In fact, it almost certifies that it will.
Every accusation leveled at God’s servants will be refuted in the end.
But that won’t stop accusations from coming.
It assumes that they will.

God is our healer-but that doesn’t mean you’ll never battle sickness.
God is our comfort-but that doesn’t mean you’ll never contend with loneliness.
God is our provider-.but that doesn’t exempt you from trials or tribulation.

David said the Lord was a shield (Psalm 3:3) for him.
And you don’t need a shield unless you’re under attack.

The struggles you’re facing don’t disprove God’s promises.
They’re the very reason He made the promises to begin with.
