Victory

Tonight, the Lord enabled me
To snatch victory from the jaws of the enemy


When I heard the word…a smile crossed my lips
“Yes Lord…forgive”


The battle began early
I felt pummeled…assaulted on every side


Relentless…unending
Subtle…but it was an effective attack


Who would recognize it
Trace it back…to the enemy


Who would recognize the handwriting
Scripted by the hater of my soul


It felt like a war
The enemy was on every front


It left me wounded and numb
Spent…barely able to lift my head


Then the "piece of resistance"
Words wielded…left me battered and bloody


Oh Lord…just get me through this day
Help me to not respond in kind


Understanding their true nature
Brought no comfort


Knowledge that they are but a puppet of the enemy
Was not a healing balm to my soul


But in the quiet…at the end of the day
I came to the end of my reserves


It was there that the Holy Spirit reminded me
Of my “new nature” in Christ


He’s the One
When He whispered the word, “Forgive”…peace filled my soul


He’s the One who will enable me to return the arena
Enter where the prowling lions seek to devour me


Yet I fear not…for He is the One
Who will shut tight the jaws that would otherwise crush me


Tonight…the Holy Spirit within
Enabled me to forgive


In doing so He snatched victory
From the deadly jaws of Satan


A powerful and effective foe to a created one
But a defeated foe to the Kind of kings and Lord of lords
