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 NKJV
This is a quote. It is from the book of Isaiah. Does that mean it is Isaiah being quoted? Isaiah was an Old Testament Prophet. He spoke the Words of God to the people of God.
How did Isaiah become a Prophet?
God revealed Himself to Isaiah in a very special and unique way. Isaiah was given a vision. He saw the Lord high and lifted up sitting on His throne. The train of His robe filled the temple.
God gave Isaiah a unique understanding of His Holiness, His Majesty and His glory. God commissioned Isaiah to speak His words to His people completely and accurately.
If you have a personal relationship with Almighty God, the Creator of Heaven and Earth it is because He revealed Himself to you in a very special and unique way.
We do not know why God chose Isaiah to be His servant. We do know that in the presence of a Holy God Isaiah said, “Woe is me for I am undone! Because I am a man of unclean lips, And I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, The Lord of Hosts.”
We do know Isaiah did not become puffed up with pride at the revelation that was given to him. He was humbled by it!
This scripture is a promise from our Heavenly Father to His people. Some would say it is a conditional promise, perhaps it is. What would that condition be?
The promise is to the servants of God! The promise of the Lord’s protection is to people who receive their righteousness from God!
Jesus has chosen you to speak for Him today!
We do not know why the Lord has chosen you. And yet He has. Do not become puffed up with pride. Walk in humility before the Lord. Your righteousness does come from good works. It comes from Almighty God.
Speak the Word of God to the people of God. Share all that the Lord has put in your heart to say to people who desperately need a revelation of God’s holiness.
Speak up loud and clear. Tell people what Jesus has done for you!
