2Cor.10:5 "Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;"
Sometimes things are overwhelming,
Trials and troubles piling up;
More than any human being can bear,
Plate so full…still, you cannot sup.
We don't know where to begin,
And…no end in sight;
So bedraggled and beat-down,
Can't even get up…and fight.
Well, there's Good News a'coming,
The solution close at hand;
For this too…God's made a provision,
Let's "SHOUT" it out…'cross the land!
He has made a way of escape,
Not to run…but to stand;
Not in our own strength…however,
And, it takes just a second.
Get into His Spirit,
All battles are won there;
In the heavenlies…with CHRIST JESUS,
In the Spirit…our warfare.
For our warfare is not carnal,
We wrestle not with flesh and blood;(Eph. 6:12)
So…get in the Spirit,
When the enemy comes in…like a flood.(Isa. 59:19)
CHRIST JESUS…already the Victor,
We just need to believe it;
Those strongholds already pulled-down,
We need only to believe it.
"But"…you say, "these battles very real",
And, I'd have to agree;
We can't just "poo-poo" them,
And, they will have to flee.
What we can do…however,
Recognize the true foe;
In the recesses of our minds,
This is where the warfare goes.
Wrestling back and forth,
And, back and forth…again;
Will it ever stop…completely,
Yes...Oh, when.....Oh, when?
Take every thought into captivity,
To the obedience of Christ;(2 Cor.10:5)
Allow the Anointed One,
To come to our aid…assist.
Our warfare in the heavenlies,
Too much for mortal man;
And, never intended…
God has another plan.
Let's get with His program,
And, with His perfect plan;
Take His route of escape,
CHRIST JESUS and our spirit-man.
