Facing Goliath

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

The battle isn’t over –
But I know it's the Lord’s.
So I won’t be defeated by
The Devil’s spear or sword.
For God is fighting for me;
He is my sword and shield.
He says He’ll go ahead of me,
To step out in that field
And face the giant with me,
To guide that single stone;
And slay that boasting enemy
Before His righteous throne.
That’s how He gives me victory,
When I yield it to Him.
For when it’s God who’s for me,
Together we will win!
“Then all this assembly shall know
that the Lord does not save with sword and spear;
for the battle is the Lord’s,
and He will give you into our hands.”
