No Weapon Forged Against You Will Prevail!


"Perpetrators of abuse often make their victims believe that they are somehow responsible for their own abuse. Such misplaced notions shift the blame of the abuse from the abuser to the abusee.” Mallika Nawal


PRAY:   ABBA Father, I stand firm on your truth that no weapon forged against me will prevail and that You will refute every tongue that accuses me. You truly know nothing will prevail against Your plan, because Your plan is perfect, and this truth is my heritage as a servant of Yours. Increase my faith to believe that there is vindication for me, for You declare it! How Glorious You are, my God. If people try to come and twist the truth of my encounter from the abuse, it will not succeed. The enemy hates when his lies and plans are thwarted, but You rejoice Lord! In Jesus' Name, Amen.     

REFLECT:    In studying this verse, we're reminded that nothing is stronger than God. No weapon is stronger than He is and He will vindicate anyone who suffers due to evil weapons. The Lord declares that promise, so are we living as if we really believe it? There is a terrible problem of abuse in the entertainment industry. And yet it's all hidden because people don't want the Press to discover their broken, fearful, and evil deeds. There are verbal, physical, and emotional weapons being forged against many people in Hollywood whom the public thinks are living perfect lives. But God punishes the attackers and He refutes every tongue that accuses. There is vindication for the victims.There is hope for healing and change! 

ACT:    Would you read this verse out loud as a proclamation and then pray for the protection and healing for all victims of domestic violence, including those in the entertainment industry. Pray that they will be protected and that the Lord will stop every tongue that accuses them. And plead with God to stop every weapon that is forged against them. Just as we desire this in every home, we want the hidden evil to come to the surface in Hollywood and for the Lord to offer a new heritage for the people who are creating our entertainment and shaping our culture.
