We Shall Not Be Overcome

shieldTake the Shield of Faith

I do not fight with merely human weapons.
No, the weapons with which I war
are not weapons of mere flesh and blood,
but in the strength of the Lord,
they arre mighty enough
to raze all stongholds of our foes.
I can batter down bulwarks of human reason;
I can scale every crag-fortress that towers up
bidding defiance to the true knowledge of God.
I can make each rebel purpose my prisoner of war
and bow it into susbmission to Messiah.
2 Corinthians 10:4-5 Way’s translation

Tempested on the sea of life;
Travailed sore, amid earth’s strife;
Afflicted often, and sore dismayed;
Look, faint heart be not afraid,
Thou shalt not be overcome!

God’s ways are far beyond our ken;
His thoughts are not the thoughts of men;
And He knoweth what is best for you.
Hope on, my friend, He will bear you through.
Thou shalt not be overcome!

Though “The reason why” we cannot see,
Our Father knows–’tis enough that we
But trust His love, when our eyes are dim.
Look up! Hold fast! though the fight is grim.
We shall not be overcome!
Mary E. Thompson

2Corinthians 10:4-5
(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal,
but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
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;
