There is a powerful verse in the Bible that is commonly quoted: “No weapon formed against you shall prosper.” Do you want to know the secret to unleashing this promise of protection in your life?
This verse is rarely quoted in full “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” When you know that your righteousness is from the Lord, then no weapon formed against you will prosper, and every tongue of accusation, judgment and condemnation that rises against you will fail!
If you maintain your belief and confession that you are righteous in Christ, the promise to Abraham and all the blessings of being an heir of the world will be unleashed into every aspect of your life.
For many of us, it is easy to confess that you are righteous when everything is going well. But let’s talk about the times when you are faced with a crisis at work, when you have made a mistake, when you are sick, when you are tempted or when you are depressed.
That is when the devil, who is, the accuser of our brethren,”10 will come against you and scream accusatory thoughts of condemnation in your ears: “You call yourself a Christian? You think that God will hear your prayer this time?” My friend, that is the time to start speaking your righteousness, an no weapon formed against you shall prosper.
The accuser wants you to focus on your performance, and if you go into the realm of the law, faith is made void and the promise made of no effect.
But if you maintain your belief and confession that you are righteous in Christ, the promise to Abraham and all the blessings of being an heir of the world will be unleashed into every aspect of your life. The accuser is very subtle.
He has no problems with you using your faith for other things, like a new car or promotion, as long as you don’t use your faith for the most important thing—believing that you are righteous by faith in Jesus.
Once you focus and channel all your faith in that direction, not only will the accuser lose his power over you, all the blessings that you desire will also be added to you! As God’s Word promises, “… seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”
Good things just happen to us when we are using our faith to believe that we are righteous! I love it that the Lord makes things so simple for us. He wants us to just focus on using our faith to believe that we are righteous before Him.
That is all we need to do. When we do that, God’s blessings will come after:
When we use our faith to believe that we are righteous in Christ, we will experience good things in our lives. We will experience amazing increases and opportunities that we are not even believing God for.
Good things just happen to us when we are using our faith to believe that we are righteous! Psalm 128:2–4 says, “…you shall be happy, and it shall be well with you.
Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine in the very heart of your house, your children like olive plants all around your table. Behold, thus shall the man be blessed…”This verse is talking about YOU.
You are the blessed man. When you are blessed, your career is blessed, and like Joseph in the Bible, everything that your hands touch will prosper. Furthermore, if you are believing God for children, your wife shall be a fruitful vine, and your children will be obedient and anointed (olive plants speak of anointing).
See yourself as this blessed person! “Even me, I…I don’t deserve this blessing.” You are absolutely right, my friend. None of us deserve the blessing of Abraham and that is why it is important that we know that we are righteous by faith.
We are not getting what our own righteousness deserves. We are getting what Jesus’ righteousness deserves. We did nothing right, but Jesus did everything right on our behalf.
This is g race—God’s undeserved, unearned and unmerited favor. His grace is the key to becoming an heir of the world and to experience the full blessings of Abraham.
You need to read this portion of the Scriptures for yourself: “For if Abraham was justified by works, he has something to boast about, but not before God. For what does the Scripture say?
Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” Now to him who works, the wages are not counted as grace but as debt.
But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness.” —Romans 4:2–5 The secret to Abraham’s blessings is found in verse five.
What did Abraham believe? He believed that God justifies the ungodly. Take some time to meditate on this. God wants you to use your faith to believe that even when you have failed, He is a God who justifies the ungodly and makes them righteous.
This is grace. My friend, put your faith in His unmerited favor instead of your works. Being righteous is not based on your perfect performance. It is based on His perfect work.
Your part is to use your faith to believe that you are indeed righteous by faith, so that you will reign in this life, become an heir of the world, and live an overcoming and victorious life.
I would like you to put your hand on your heart right now. Let’s say this before the Lord and I believe that miracles will happen. Are you ready?
Say this: “Father God, I thank You that in Your great love plan, You want me blessed in every area of my life.
Your heart’s desire, according to 3 John 1:2, is for me to prosper and be in health even as my soul prospers. I thank You that my children, marriage, career and ministry will all be blessed with the blessing of Abraham.
I know that it comes because it’s Your promise and not because of my efforts or works. So Father, in Jesus’ name, deliver me from performance-oriented Christianity and give me Your grace to be established in the righteousness of faith.
I confess before You that I am the righteousness of God in Christ. Therefore, every blessing that belongs to the righteous is mine. This is my call. This is my destiny. The devil is under my feet. I am above the evil one because I am in Christ, who is my righteousness.
I have everlasting righteousness. I am not righteous today and unrighteous tomorrow. I am righteous forever. The Holy Spirit dwells in me to show me how righteous You have made me. In Jesus’ name, I declare that I shall reign in life and be an heir of the world. Amen!”
As you focus on and confess your righteousness in Christ, get ready to see His blessings coming after you. It may not happen overnight, but if you keep confessing by faith that you are the righteousness of God, you are honoring what Jesus did to make you righteous, and God will make good His promise in your life.
