God’s Weapon

“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

What are the weapons being formed against us? Weapons the enemy uses against us are words and thoughts. Some of these include: you’re no good, you messed up too bad, God doesn’t care or love you or forgive you. Our negative self-talk is a weapon used against us to keep us from living the life of abundance that Jesus promises. Our recovery has to incorporate a plan to stop negative self-talk and replace it with thoughts of hope and truth.

How do we get rid of negative self-talk? First, we ask God to remove the lies and replace them with His Truth. One way to hear God’s Truth is to read His Word each day. Memorize scripture that is affirming and rejects the lies of the enemy. An example would be, “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus …”, as found found in Romans 8:1.

If you are hearing a condemning voice in your head, that’s a weapon trying to form. Don’t let the weapon of negative self-talk begin to get a foothold. Negative self-talk can damage our self-worth, peace, joy, as well as distance us from Christ and others. Bring the darkness of negative self-talk out into the bright light of Christ’s Truth. Talk about it with your sponsor or accountability partners. Don’t let the negativity grow in darkness. Share it in a small group. Stop the cycle of abuse happening in your mind. An old saying in recovery is, “Stop beating yourself up. You’re beating up someone I love.”

Written by James Miller

Heavenly Father, you word says that no weapon formed against me shall prosper. Father, I surrender my negative self talk over to you. Help to stay in your word so that you can make a change in the way that I think and live. Thank you God for all that you have been doing in my recovery. I want to stay thankful that I am your child and you will allow nothing to cause me harm. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
