When focus is off in our life, we start to value the opinions of others more than the opinion of God.
Let me tell you a secret: THE OPINION OF GOD ABOUT YOU IS THE ONLY OPINION THAT MATTERS.
I’m not saying that what other people say about you won’t hurt you or even damage your life, because it can, but instead, I’m saying, you don’t have to let what other people say, be the final word over your life.
No weapon formed agains you will prosper.
In fact, let’s read that passage of scripture:
Isaiah 54:17 NKJV
 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.
If you notice this, the verse never says weapons WON’T BE FORMED AGAINST US, BECAUSE SATAN WILL SEE TO IT THAT WEAPONS ARE FORMED AGAINST US.
It does say, however, that the weapons won’t ultimately prosper.
Also, this verse DOES NOT SAY that GOD will condemn those voices…it says that YOU WILL CONDEMN THEM.
How? By keeping your peace intact, by living in faith not fear of them, by being the person you know you were created to be no matter what the voices say about you.
Other people might call you a terrible Christian, a bad parent, a horrible person…they might lie about you, they might say you are no good at what you do…but in the end the only opinion of your life that COUNTS…IS GOD’S OPINION.
I’ve had to learn a long long time ago, as a church leader, to NOT LISTEN TO THE VOICES that say I’m not good enough, don’t do enough, don’t preach well enough, and that I’m not a good enough pastor or leader.
The voices about your life come straight to you sometimes, but most often they come from behind your back or in some hidden place…but DON’T YOU WORRY ABOUT THOSE CONDEMNING VOICES.
GOD’S OPINION OF YOU IS WHAT MATTERS, AND HE KNOWS WHERE YOUR HEART REALLY IS.
God will strengthen you to condemn those voices and quench their power, those weapons will not WORK AGAINST YOU!
