No Weapon Shall Prosper

No weapon shall prosper.

16  Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.17  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

Psalm 7  For God is the King of all the earth: sing ye praises with understanding.8  God reigneth over the heathen: God sitteth upon the throne of his holiness.9  The princes of the people are gathered together, even the people of the God of Abraham: for the shields of the earth belong unto God: he is greatly exalted.

All the weapons belong to God, because there is no power but that of God.  Even the devil himself has only the being and power given to him as a gift of the Creator.  God is so high above all things, and so powerful, that He makes even the wrath of men to praise Him.  Ps 76:10  

Because all the weapons belong to God:  the tongue, the heart, the hand, the engines of war, the imagination, the will, the courage, the pride, the arrogance, the hardness of heart, the cruelty, the anger, etc., there is nothing that can do permanent harm to His work or His people.  No weapon shall prosper and no tongue can judge.  

Not even the dogs barked against Israel as they left Egypt.  "Who shall lay anything to the charge of God's elect.  It is God that justifies." God's power and wisdom are so great, so high above all things that He made, that He is able to make all things work together for good, for His glory and the good of His people.  

This does not mean that evil becomes good, for that would be a contradiction of the very being of God, but it does mean that the outcome of all things is good and for His glory.  If you do not seek God's glory the outcome will not be good for you, however, for the wicked shall be turned into hell and all the nations that forget God.
