Imagine a strong fortress built to last, for the protection of those who will be within it in times of raging storms and terrible disasters.
Christ Jesus is this strong fortress, our high tower; stronger than the storms of life. His protection has no limit, throughout eternity HE Remains the sure rock of covering to every travailing life and soul. He is our shield and exceeding great reward. In times of evil and distress (for us in Christ Jesus) He expects us to be at Rest, secure in Him.
Isaiah 54:15-17 reveals this of His Covenant promise saying, “Behold they shall surely gather together; but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against you shall fall for your sake. Behold I have created the Smith that blows the coals in fire and that brings forth instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy. No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment, thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servant of the LORD and their righteousness is of me saith the Lord”. (KJV)
Interestingly, the Message translation of this same scripture says:
“If anyone attacks you, don’t for a moment suppose that I sent them, And if any should attack, nothing will come of it. I create the blacksmith who fires up his forge and makes a weapon designed to kill. I also create the destroyer— but no weapon that can hurt you has ever been forged. Any accuser who takes you to court will be dismissed as a liar. This is what God’s servants can expect. I’ll see to it that everything works out for the best.”
This is the Grace of the LORD to you my friend. This is the LORD, swearing a Covenant vow to you in Love saying, I will Never let you fall my dear one, I will never let you get hurt and I will Never allow any weapon hurt you . I’ll keep you and no harm will come to you and All I need you to do is to Fear Not vs14, Put me in remembrance of my Covenant promises to you, (Not remind me of it; but you remember what I’ve said concerning you; believing), then boldly make the declaration of faith, just as I have said them to you and you will be discharged and acquitted totally Justified.
Isaiah 44:26, which tallies well with Isaiah 54:17 says “every tongue that rises up against you in judgment You shall condemn; How? By Boldly declaring the Word of the Lord and His Covenant promises to you against that situation unflinchingly. E.g, if war were to suddenly break out right where you are, all you need to do is to simply begin declaring in Faith and Rest what God has said concerning your protection in the midst of war from scriptures like, Psalm 91: 1-end which says “the Lord is your refuge and your fortress, your God in whom you trust.. A thousand will fall at your side and ten thousand at your right, but no evil will come near you”.
So as you feed on the truth of scriptures, believing them and resting in their realities and potency for you, you will find yourself totally at rest and victorious in the eye of the storm, Glory to Jesus.
Till next time, remain Ever Blessed and Safe in His strong Tower,
Jesus Is Lord!
