WHOSE REPORT ARE YOU GOING TO BELIEVE?
17 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
(There are many things that we are exposed to in this world and oftentimes, various darts and stones from the enemy and just life in general, come at us. But we can be assured that we can remain strong and even like that tree that is planted by the river, we can succeed and even flourish. Don’t let the things of this life cause you to give up or to lose hope, for we have a Father who will enable us to triumph and continue. We have this inheritance. When we look at the waves of the sea as Peter did, then we will begin to sink, but if we trust and stand firm then we can remain calm no matter what comes our way.)
“What report are you going to believe, my people? When things come against you in this world, what or who will you end up believing? For when the arrows of the enemy are flung at you, you need not let them enter into your domain.
For have I not said that, ‘If I am for you then who can be against you?’ For many shall come against you, but if you have my word buried in your heart and you have a mind filled full of peace, then you shall stand upon the rock.
For in this world you shall have many trials and tribulations, but I shall deliver you out of all of them. When you stand upon my word then you truly shall be like that tree that is planted by the river. For when nations rise and fall, and when the mountains are cast into the sea, then you shall not be moved.
For even a ship that is tossed upon the seas if its rigging is strong and it is made out of strong material, will stay afloat. Be ye therefore like that ship.
For the waters may rage around you, and the seas may rise, but you can remain calm in any weather. ”
