Not Today, World!

For our struggle is 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. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Ephesians 6:12-13 NIV

Here is a song I wrote, that I hope encourages you. We are in a battle which is already won by our own personal friend and Savior! He won it for us! The enemy in the world tempts, taunts and terrorizes us, trying to take back the victory. Just say, “Not today, World!”

This battle on the ground is
not my final one.
Any troubles here
last just awhile.
The world can try, but
never get my soul’s embrace.
My Jesus lives inside.

So when I get discouraged
on the battlefield,
Weary of the fight,
I lift my eyes.
I see your face,
and all the worries, Lord,
you take them from my mind,
You are my saving grace!

Not today, world.
I’m not yours to have.
Not today,
for I am His alone.
Any victory,
you may have over me,
will not destroy.
I still have joy!
My Father’s on the throne!

When trials come and chase me
on the battlefield,
I’m tempted to give in
and blame you, Lord.
I ask you why.
You dry my eyes
and all the burdens, Lord
you help me carry them,
and point me to the skies!

He won the battle on the cross.
Paid the price to set me free!
The world no longer gets to
have a hold on me.
The battle’s done.
I see the Son!
He won the victory!

Sooo…not Today, World…
