For though the mountains should depart and the hills be shaken or removed, yet My love and kindness shall not depart from you, nor shall My covenant of peace and completeness be removed, says the Lord, Who has compassion on you. Amp.
Peace – c) safe, well, happy, prosperity, rest, favor, quietness, health, and welfare.
Isaiah is talking about the last days when the shaking begins. Even if the mountains depart and the hills be removed, He says He will lay waste mountains, (Is. 45:2). He will protect His people who rely upon Him. His peace will be upon them and all that it means. It all adds up to wholeness. His people will be at rest because of the trials they have all ready come through.
In verse 11, He acknowledges that they have been afflicted and storm tossed and not comforted. But that is in the past and now He will lay a new foundations with precious stones as He does in Revelation 21:19-20. He is establishing them, so they will be strong and stand when He comes.
In verse 12, He replaces the broken windows with beautiful stain glass or precious stones. This means the old man has died and is risen, a new creation from ashes to beauty. They will be overcomers with a testimony to win souls for Christ.
In verse 13, all their spiritual children will be taken care of, learning the ways of God, growing in grace and undisturbed peace.
In verse 14, they are protected from oppression and destruction, as it says in Psalm 91:7. “A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near you.”
Psalm 91:8 Only a spectator shall you be yourself inaccessible in the secret place of the Most High as you witness the reward of the wicked. Amp. It is as when Abraham looked and saw the smoke from Sodom and Gomorrah. He was in a safe place and in no danger, witnessing the end of those two cities.
Verse 15-17 says, others may try to cause you trouble but they will fall away because of you. And no weapon formed against you shall prosper and every tongue that rises against you, you shall show to be in the wrong. What great promises He has given to His own.
Why does He give us such precious promises? If He is holy and cannot lie, then we have something more than faith to rely on. We have His Word to us. One of the best promises in the Bible is “No weapon formed against you shall prosper.” So we can go through battle after battle and tell the devil that no matter what he uses against us, it will not work.
The key in taking authority over the devil is faith. You have to believe what you say is fact. We have to obey the Word of God as it says in James 4:7, “So be subject to God, — stand firm against the devil; resist him and he will flee from you.”
We must be sure that we are in obedience to God in all of our ways. If we are in any type of sin, we are either wasting our time or setting ourselves up for an attack. If you really want the victory, you have to do it God’s way and the devil will surely flee.
The Lord has given us all we need to fight and come out victor’s. We just have to keep our eyes on Him and His truth to us. Satan will lie to you every chance he gets. We must resist his lies, keeping our eyes off of our weakness and off of our circumstances. If we focus on the good promise that He gives us we will not fail.
If we focus on the problems in our life we are not in faith. Jesus had problems when He walked on the earth, but He continually thought on the victory promised to Him by the Father. He is our example. Thank you Jesus for showing us the way. Give us eyes to see the victory and strength to stand upon Your great promises to us.
