Winning The Battle

We must use the Word of God
To calm emotions that fray.
For the enemy never sleeps
Until he has led us astray.

So when your emotions overflow
With feelings like depression and fear.
Know this! If you dwell in that place,
You invite the enemy to draw near.

When your emotions rage
With fiery darts aglow,
Stand in the power of the Lord
Against its awful woe.

And if you get confused
And lost in the storm,
Put your thoughts on trial
Rejecting all but heaven born.

You can win the battle
That rages within your soul.
By casting down imaginations
And breaking Satan’s hold.

Remember to focus on Jesus
Holding the world at arm’s length.
Lift up your head above the trial
And the Lord will give you strength.
