“No weapon that is formed against you will succeed; And every tongue that rises against you in judgment you will condemn. This [peace, righteousness, security, and triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And this is their vindication from Me,” says the Lord (Isaiah 54:17 AMP).

Beloved, as I read our feature text, I’m reminded of the time the high priest and Sadducees arrested the Apostles and put them in jail (Acts 5:18). They thought no one would ever hear their voices again. However, who can stop you when the Lord’s hand is upon you? Their enemies thought… let’s see how they can come out of this one… But an angel of the Lord came at night, opened the gates of the jail, and brought them out. Then he told them, “Go to the Temple and give the people this message of life!” (Acts 5: 19-20 NLT)

They were set free and… at daybreak the apostles entered the Temple, as they were told, and immediately began teaching. When the high priest and his officials arrived, they convened the high council-the full assembly of the elders of Israel. Then they sent for the apostles to be brought from the jail for trial (Acts 5:21 NLT).

They gathered together and probably thought; let’s finish them once and for all… Go and bring them. Beloved, do you know your enemies would always come to look for you where they think they’ve keep you. In pretence they would say “let me give her a call to see if she’s still okay”. They would say; “Can I come and visit you” just so they can report back on whether their plans to destroy your home has succeeded. However, their weapon formed against you will not succeed.

But when the temple guards went to the jail, THE MEN WERE GONE. So they returned to the council and reported, “The jail was securely locked, with the guards standing outside, but when we opened the gates, no one was there!” (Acts 5: 22-23 NLT)

THE MEN WERE GONE…

Beloved, can anyone put you in a place where the Lord cannot get you out from? Never!… For He breaks down gates of bronze and cuts through bars of iron (Psalm 107:16)… When the captain of the Temple guard and the leading priests heard this, they were perplexed, wondering WHERE IT WOULD ALL END (ACTS 5: 24NLT).

WHERE WOULD IT ALL END? I think the question should be; Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? (Romans 8:33) Who can curse whom the Lord has blessed? (Numbers 23:8)

Beloved, we live in a wicked world were people come against you for all sorts of reasons. The high priest and his officials, who were Sadducees were filled with jealousy (Acts 5:17 NLT). Jealousy! That’s where it always starts.

Your enemies may think you are still where they tried to put you but… if the Lord is for you, who can be against you? Today, I pray that no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you.

God bless you in Jesus Christ name
