If anyone fiercely assails you it will not be from Me. Whoever assails you will fall because of you. (Isa 54:15 NASB, emphasis added)
The Lord is declaring Himself as our protector and defender in this verse! What a promise—what a breathtaking gift! He says this many times in various ways in the Bible.
Behold, all those who are angered at you will be shamed and dishonored; those who contend with you will be as nothing and will perish. (Isa 41:11 NASB)
For I will contend with him who contends with you, and I will save your children. (Isa 49:25b NKJV)
Contend means to resist, oppose, or challenge. The Lord says that when someone opposes or challenges one of His children, HE will be the One to deal with them. Not only will He save us, but He’ll save our children.
These are wonderful, powerful and precious promises to rely upon. Don’t think that they’re only in the Bible to encourage us and to reassure us. They are provided to us as weapons of our spiritual warfare! (2 Cor 10:4; Eph 6:17 NKJV)
The Bible teaches us that the Word of God is living and powerful—active. It goes on to say that it is sharper than any two-edged sword, able to perceive (detect) the thoughts and purposes of a person’s heart!
For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Heb 4:12 NKJV)
Use the Word of God as the weapon that it truly is. Meditate upon it; speak with the Lord about it; and let Him know that you not only believe it but you depend up it to come to pass in your life. Believe the Word and stand upon it by faith.
Your faith and trust in Him and in His Word will please the Lord as well as improve your life immeasurably.
