Of this battle man canít see -
And where does he fit in?
Itís outlined in God's Word,
Man needing armor unto him.
It is a daily battle
As the Bible does portray
That if we do not dress for it
Then it is evil that we pay.
As the enemy works on
Every man not in armor;
Those absorbed in self-thought-lies
Are sought by evil and slaughtered.
Godís Word reveals truth:
Spirit-war is not our fight
But rather that we Ďarmor-upí
In Jesus Christ - the God of Light.
Itís His fight, not ours, He says;
But our responsibility -
To dress daily for the battle:
To Ďstand firmí is our duty.
The helmet of salvation;
Breastplate of righteousness;
Truth buckled íround the waist;
In sandals of Christís peace.
And once then fully dressed -
Pick up the Spiritís sword,
And the shield of our faith
In the Word of Christ our Lord!
Though the battle is demonic
Invading hearts from outward-in
Know satan will attack much more;
All aspects of manís sin.
Through Christ is promised freedom
His 'Way' who conquered sinÖ
For most important is to grasp
This absolute message:
Pray, faithfully each morning
Each piece of Christís armor:
To suit-up in Jesus-faith
In Spirit -- God-secured.
