WHEN WE QUIT THE FIGHT

When we try to run from God

We are actually deceiving ourselves,

Because there’s nowhere in the world we can hide

Since His omnipresence dwells.

When we ignore that nagging sensation;

The one deep in our soul,

We will keep ourselves fully occupied

And perhaps never reach any meaningful goals.

When we ignore our calling;

True rest and peace won’t dwell,

Because we’re deliberately avoiding the inevitable

And heartache this will spell.

It’s our stubbornness and our resistance

That become our stumbling blocks,

But God is knocking on the door of our heart

For true freedom to unlock.

Although He is in total control

He’s a gentleman through and through,

And will never force anyone to come

To eternal life and be renewed.

When we quit the fight

And we surrender unto Him,

We discover true life with joy and peace;

With satisfaction from within.

And then the real fight will occur;

The battle for our soul,

Since our spiritual enemy is furious indeed

Having lost his firm stronghold.

But God will help us to overcome

Since He’s faithful and loyal too,

And when we solely trust in His salvation

He will protect us with His truth.

The battle is won through humility

Covered with love and gentleness,

And with a repentant and a contrite heart

And where God’s Spirit manifests.

Jesus didn’t resist the cross

Because He knew His mission well,

As He humbly carried that wretched cross

To save our souls from hell.
