Isaiah 54:17 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 servants of the Lord , and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord

So with that in mind, think of it this way, the definition of a Weapon: a thing designed or used for inflicting bodily harm or physical damage. {A means of gaining an advantage or defending oneself in a conflict or contest}

That, the definition of a weapon is the perfect definition of what the devil does. He tries to gain an advantage over you. he has to defend himself against you because of the power you have.

He knows that when you pray, you’re limiting him and his authority
When you worship, you’re stomping all over him and taking back everything he stole from you
When all you do is walk into a room at school or at work, you’re walking in with the creator of the universe inside of you and he CAN NOT compete with you. That’s why he comes against you as hard as he can and in every way that he can.

When Satan was in heaven, he fought against the angel Michael and his angels with his army but he didn’t win and he was cast down to the earth with his angels. The heavens rejoiced because their accuser was finally gone but now he dwells among us.
The bible says WOE to the inhabiters of the earth because the devil is come down to us. Woe is great sorrow, distress, glom, depression, trouble, despair, trial, tribulation.
That definitely sounds like what this world faces and what we have to battle against.
and on top of all that, he devil is angry because he lost his place in heaven. Then he sees us, how we are made in God’s image, and how GOD is fighting for us. he sees how much power we have and he hates us for it. So now he puts up a fight against us with great wrath because he knows he has but a short time.

He comes against us with all different kinds of weapons. But the great thing is, he doesn’t actually have any real weapons, he himself has no power. All he can come against us with is intelligence. All he has is his words. But he knows that if he uses them right, they are all the weapon that he needs.

Not too long ago, I was feeling so shameful, I wasn’t able to spend time with God the past day and a half because of homework overload and finals and the usual, social media. I started praying and I started saying the verse in psalms, oh my soul, why are you so downcast within me? You trust in God! And the whole time, I was listening to music and as I was praying that verse, a part in the song said no weapon formed against me shall not prosper and I felt a peace, God didn’t quite speak to my spirit but He gave me a revelation in my spirit. And that revelation was, Even this discouragement and this shame I feel can not prosper because it is a type of weapon that the devil is using against me

The devil is going to throw lies at you, he is the father of lies and can’t tell the truth

The devil can only lie to you, everything that goes through your mind that is not of God is a lie. For instance, there’ll be times when Satan will tell you “God doesn’t love you.” but that’s when you tell Satan,
God does love me, He took the punishment I deserve because He didn’t want me to be punished. Or when he tells you “God is so disappointed with you” that’s a lie, God may not like the sin but He loves the sinner, He’s never going to stop supporting you in what you do, He is your biggest fan no matter what you do or what you go through.

But it gets to me that the devil has so many of us forgetting that. He has so many of us believing that we’re alone, and not wanted. Those are weapons!

If you are filled with the holy ghost and you feel discouraged,
if the devil is telling you that you’ll never overcome your sin, that feeling, that voice is not of God. It’s the devil defending himself against you because he knows the power you have!
He knows that you have all power to overcome everything he throws at you but he doesn’t want you to know that.

Remember 1 John 4:4, we all know this one, ye are of God little children and have overcome them because greater is He that is in you than he that is in the world. Romans 8:31 what shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
God will not leave you without comfort, He will come to you when the enemy puts up a fight. God will fight for you, that’s why the devil’s weapons cannot prosper.
When you’re feeling discouraged, just remember that it’s one of the devil’s weapons and that he purposed it to be against you and knock you down so he wouldn’t be knocked down himself but since it’s been formed against you, it cannot prosper.
