Confidence Through Courage

From Ephesians 6:10-12:  Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His power; put on the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil, for our struggle is not against blood and flesh but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.”

Evil waits in shadows

Always ready to pounce

Bending each tender rose

Courage fills every ounce

 

Darkness plays upon fears

Adversary arrives

Filling each heart with tears

Courage always survives

 

God’s armor shall protect

Against wicked’s arrows

Standing tall and erect

Courage never narrows

 

Bold light shines from above

God harbors faith’s stronghold

Sending grace, filled with love

Confidence grows and holds

 

Oh, God of Salvation

High upon solid rock

Blessing life’s narration

Confidence grasps bedrock

 

Shouts of joy, praising God

Hope now breathes, without fear

Walking on mercy’s sod

Confidence always near

From Psalm 27:1-2:  “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?  The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?  When evildoers assail me to devour my flesh—my adversaries and foes—they shall stumble and fall.”
