For our struggle in not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.Ephesians 6:12
The relentless army wages war It comes by day and night Its mighty powers of utter darkness Are set against what is right The heavenly realms do not fear They know who is the King Our Loving Father reminds us of this He says, "Don't forget to sing - I am the Mighty Warrior, who Reigns over everything Now, sing your song with powerful effect Let me hear the praises ring."
His anxious thought said: “Terrific powers are set in array against me!”
His Father said: “And you are as a little child, who knows not how to meet them. But with you, there is one stronger than they. Do not forget to sing!”
When the Israelites began to sing and praise, the Lord set ambushes for their enemy, Amalek. Because the hand of Amalek was turned, not against the Israelites whom they attacked in the wilderness, but against the throne of God, the Lord declared war on them from generation to generation (1 Samuel 15:2-3).
Therefore, do not be afraid and do not be discouraged, though a great crowd is set against you. For the Lord your God, He shall fight against them together with you – with powerful effect!
