No Weapon Formed Against You Shall Prosper

Psalm 100 – The Bible (KJV) – Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endures to all generations. Isaiah 54:17 – The Bible (KJV) – 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.

  2. Psalms 100 – among my favorites – is always a great reminder for me: I can’t even get through the gates or into the courts without praise and thanksgiving! All prayer should begin and end with praise!

  3. My kids had to memorize Psalm 100 (along with many other verses!) in kindergarten, so it has stuck with me through the years, too. It’s a lovely reminder of God’s love.

  4. Seems like an awful lot of weapons are prospering to me

    • There are lots of weapons formed against many, but this verse cuts out a certain group of people, against whom no weapon will prosper – the servants of the LORD (notice the last sentence in the verse.) Since you are a believer, I consider you in the group.

      Weapons are meant to destroy. I am sure the Evil One has prepared many a weapon meant to destroy you, Carl. Yet no weapon formed against you has destroyed you. For a weapon to prosper, it must destroy. So, no weapon formed against you has prospered. What do you think? I’m sure you’ve lived through some tough times. Did your struggle make you stronger?

      I suppose that eventually physical death will get us. Even then, death will not prosper against us, because we will live forever with God. Blessings to you, Carl…

    • Thank you for stopping by and for your comment, Len. I appreciate it. I love the Psalms. I read them again and again. When I feel vulnerable, I cling to the promise that no weapon formed against me will prosper. I claim it. I may not be a perfect servant, but then, no one is, so God must be protecting the imperfect. Praises to our LORD. Blessings to you, Len…

    The key for these verses in my life is to be His servant. His protection is our heritage if we are His servants. I love the thought of His protection for us.

    • I love that thought, too, Jeanne. I rely on His promise of protection. We are His servants. A servant’s heart rejoices in the truth of this verse. We rejoice because we know He is faithful to lead us, keep us close, and to teach us how to serve Him. Blessings to you…

    Such a blessing i feel reading this word of God.let me share another encouraging reading of the word and it happens to be psalms as well…Psalm 91

    1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” 3 Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. 4 He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. 5 You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, 6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. 8 You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. 9 If you make the Most High your dwelling– even the LORD, who is my refuge– 10 then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent. 11 For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; 12 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. 13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. 14 “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. 15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. 16 With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation.”
