Lent FLOW Mar. 2

“No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment You shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is from Me,” says the Lord.”

Isaiah 54:17

I love the band Petra, I have loved them since I was a freshman in high school. Though I am not going to tell you what year that was, Petra did disband in 2006... that should date me enough! One of my favorite songs by them is “No Weapon Formed”; this is the entirety of the lyrics:

No weapon formed against us shall prosper All those who rise up against us shall fall I will not fear what the devil may bring me I am a servant of God
I am a servant of God

When I joined the Army, I would be in a fox hole at 2:00am by myself and terrified. When I was hiding from domestic abuse I was terrified. When my son was in the hospital and we weren’t sure if he would live, I was terrified. I would sing this song over, and over, and over until whatever terror I was feeling subsided, it became my fear theme song. This song by Petra is from Isaiah 54:17

I don’t think the song needs many more lyrics. Do you believe this uncomplicated promise from God?? I will not fear what the devil may bring me, I am a servant of God. Today, no matter what Satan tries to bring you, stand inside of that truth.
