No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper

Here’s another great bible verse I like to read from time to time.  Whenever I’m in tough times. When I feel the world is against me. When I feel that I’m in a social situation where I’m the outsider. When a woman I wanted to date not only rejected me, but threw her new relationship in my face for months, for reasons somewhat unbeknownst to me.  When I’ve been in personal or professional situations in which I’ve let my guard down and people have taken advantage and thrown me under the bus.  Whenever I feel flat-out attacked, period, I find strength in this verse (among others):

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.”

Isaiah 54:17King James Version (KJV)

For more on this verse, here’s some good analysis:
