What shall we then say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
God is for you. Nothing that comes against you can stand against the power of God.
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 your righteousness is from Him.
When you allow a lie to define who you are, you give that lie power in your life. You treat it as truth. Whether that lie is from the enemy or from another person or from your own conscience, you have God’s power to condemn every lie which rises against you. This is your heritage in Christ. Your righteousness is from Him. Christ defines who you are—not any lie.
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
My friend in Christ, exercise the power you have in the Lord. Stand strong in the authority you have in Christ. Use the whole armor that He has given you to stand against the lies and wiles of the enemy. Put on the whole armor of God, and condemn all that comes against you. Withstand unwaveringly in the righteousness that is yours. Christ’s authority is your heritage.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
What you speak is either life or death, and you will experience the result of what you declare. Lies are the judgments the enemy uses to defeat you. Speak death to the lies he brings. Condemn them. Don’t believe them. Choose to believe the truth of the righteousness Christ has given you. God’s truth gives you power. Christ has given you abundant life. Speak life to what is yours in Christ and death to the lies which come against God’s truth (John 10:10).
It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.
Your words gain you nothing. Your words have no power. It is God’s Word you speak that exercises the authority you have been given. His words are spirit, and they are life. His Word is your truth. It is your power. Plant it in your heart. Renew your mind with it. Speak His Word and His life into every circumstance—every decision—everything that rises to condemn you.
You are victorious because Christ was victorious for you. His work is done, and your new life in Him is the result. And no weapon has the power to take away the new life you have inherited in Christ.
In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory.
Your guaranteed new life is what Christ has purchased for you. When you believed the truth of your salvation in Christ, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise. Trust Him. Take every thought captive that comes against God’s truth. You are His, and you have His power to condemn any lie and speak His truth into your life.
What shall you say? He is for you. Who has any power against you?
