The battle is real

But God’s more real indeed,

And He comforts us and will protect

As we ask Him to intercede.

The battle is on for our heart;

Although it’s invisible we can see

That the enemy of our soul

Is as ruthless as can be.

He comes to kill and to destroy

And will rob us of our peace;

He has a perfect hatred towards us

And his deception he’ll release.

He comes to strip away our joy

And will lie that God’s not there;

He is envious of God’s creation

And sincerely does not care.

He sets his foot in many arenas

In order to infiltrate,

And although it’s masked as something good

There is underlying hate.

He counterfeits all that God does

And masquerades as an angel of light,

And will try to influence those complacent

Who refuse to fight the fight.

The battle is definitely on

And targets every family,

To divide and cause much friction

So God’s abundance will not be seen.

But it’s the inner battle of the heart

That causes chaos and much pain,

When we blame everyone else indeed

And where faith does not remain.

We all suffer in different ways

But cannot blame God indeed,

Because most times it’s self-induced

Or perhaps self-centred ways we see.

The battle is real 

But are we prepared in our field?

Is our armor fastened for protection

And do we hold that faithful shield?

The enemy has lost the battle

Because Jesus is victor indeed,

And when Christ is Lord and Savior

For our soul He intercedes.

But we cannot be complacent

Or compromising in any way,

Because those fiery darts will target our mind

Where deception may remain.

Beloved, let’s not toy with eternity

Because it’s as real as the air we breathe,

There’s a reason Christ suffered so much for us

As it was God’s plan to intervene.

Jesus won the battle

At the cross at Calvary,

And nailed every sin upon that tree

So we can truly be set free.
