The Battle of the Flesh By Brenda Drake

            There are many battles but the one battle constant is the battle of the flesh.  Just as we think we have conquered its threat we have not and find we cannot stand against it alone.  We need God’s help each day.  He helps by teaching the Scripture.  He lifts us up as He answers prayer.  He comforts and heals from our wounds because He lives within.   He gives us strength to overcome for He is our strength.  He never leaves us or forsakes us. 

The Battle of Flesh

Constant is the battle; wrong or right;
Within there is a great fight.
As you abstain from doing as you wish
This is the battle of flesh
Know as you continue; as you from sin depart,
It becomes easier when in the right direction you start.
I then become your strength, I make you strong.
I lead from within away from wrong.
I am the One that shows the right way;
As you study the Word and as you pray.
When you learn Scripture – I speak in your heart.
The truth stands inside and will not depart.
As you live the example you should be,
You are also a word spoken for Me.
Others around you will hear loud and clear,
The truth I desire for them to hear.
Little children know battles are sure to come,
But remember the war is already won.
You must choose the side you serve; right or wrong.
Although battles still rage you can sing victory song!

Psalms 34:7
The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.
