We know that still is true.
God's promises, His faithfulness,
At last come shining through.
So often worry fills the mind,
We reason it all out,
Until one day we realize
God's weapons it will rout.
With both feet standing on His Word,
We raise His banner high,
And clasp His promises of truth
When enemies draw nigh.
It is not ours to question,
The why, the how, and when,
But when our answer finally comes
We simply shout, “Amen.”
God's given every weapon,
A purpose for each one.
His words the sword we wield
And the enemy's undone.
His helmet of salvation
To guard our thoughts and minds,
The belt of truth we tighten,
By truth all lies it binds.
The breastplate of His righteousness
So morals are not blurred,
Held closely to our hearts
We stand upon His Word.
Our feet shod with His Gospel,
Firm footed we thus stand,
And faith we lift up as a shield,
All doubts and fear withstand.
God's written Word our sword,
We wield with truth and grace
To fight off all life's enemies
And mental darts we face.
Penned by the Holy Spirit,
God's Word still holds the key,
And standing firm upon this base
All enemies will flee.
It is not ours to question
The why, the how and when,
But when the answer finally comes,
We simply shout, “Amen!”
“Therefore put on God's complete armor, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day (of danger), and having done all (the crisis demands), to stand (firmly in your place).” Ephesians 6:13 (Amplified Bible)
