The weapon of Love
“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper” (Isa 54:17).
If no weapon that is formed against us should prosper or overcome us, we must have a greater and mightier weapon than the weapons formed against us. What is this weapon? It is the love of God. When we learn to love our enemies with forgiving love, that heavenly love can conquer all the powers of darkness coming against us.
The enemy, the devil, may have many weapons, including “fiery darts” (Eph 6:16). Look at the challenging words in the Song of Solomon: “Many waters cannot quench love; neither can the floods drown it” (S.S. 8:7). Many waters speak of the rejections, humiliations, accusations, hatred, persecutions, etc. coming against us. When we are filled with Calvary’s undying and unchanging love, these weapons or trials are no doubt but straw before the fire.
“Love is strong as death” (S.S 8:6). In a deep sense,God’s love is stronger than death. Death is the last enemy. If it is possible to conquer the last enemy through the love of God, surely all other enemies and weapons can be easily conquered by love.
Perhaps today you are confronted with many of the enemy’s weapons. The only way to become more than a conqueror over these trials or troubles is to be filled with Calvary’s pure love. Are you able to love those who insult you, humiliate you, persecute you, reject you, despise you, deceive you, or deprive you of your money and goods? IF SO, you are more than a CONQUEROR.

Stay Blessed 😊
The lord looked and was displeased that there was no justice. He saw that there was no one. He was appalled that there was no one to intervene. So His own arm worked salvation for him.
When the people don’t stand up against injustice, an appalled God intervenes. The injustice of the people include violence, lying, hostility, rebellion, oppressing the weak and ignoring God. Is 59:3-9. These sins place a barrier between God and people. Is 59:1-2 So true and holy justice is not dispensed. People fail to defend those who are being oppressed by injustice.
Only the lord Himself is able to do so. And He doesnot hesitate to step in where His people fail to offer salvation, restoration and justice. Human failures cannot defeat the purposes of God. God faithfully maintained His covenant with His people.
