My heart is overwhelmed for
you came down from your majestic throne as a Man of war leading your armies and broke through the fortress of my imprisonment,
the cage of my captivity.
You battled the hordes of hell, the powers of darkness, in the abyss of deception and the trenches of affliction.
You took hold of the horned Prince of darkness and hurled him out of my way and lifted me up, washed me clean and set me along your glorious path.
Your wonders to perform.
Your acts to make known.
Your works to declare.
Your will to be done.

We are at war. Can you hear the sound of gun shots? See the lifeless bloodied frames, like mugshots?
We are at war. Can you hear the sound of thundering grenades? See men running for their lives, among them, renegades?
We are at war. Clad in the full armour of God, I hear not the frightful sound, but praising heavenly hosts I hear. I see not the gory sights and frenzied crowd, but joy-filled victorious saints I see.
War is over! that’s a comforting decree. For on the cross Christ paid the price so we declare “the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds (2 Cor. 10:4 KJV).
1Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God.2Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the LORD’S hand double for all her sins.(Isaiah 40:1-2 KJV)
“37Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.” (Romans 8:37KJV)
“Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil.”(Ephesians 6:11 NLT)
