Strategy of the Stronger

"By wise counsel thou shalt make thy war.... If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small" (Proverbs 24:6,10). "They cried to God in battle, and He was entreated of them, because they put their trust in Him" (1 Chronicles 5:20). "If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand?.... But when a Stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, He taketh from him all his armor wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils. He that is not with Me is against Me: and he that gathereth not with Me scattereth" (Luke 11:17-23).

There is a strategy for war
And strength to win as well,
That Jesus Christ has shown before
Against the gates of hell.

Put your trust in God today
And in this needful hour
Stand with God and to Him pray,
And He shall send His power.

There is no other strategy
That ever can succeed
In this day of adversity,
In view of our great need!

We dare not trust our feeble sword
To help us any longer.
Our strength to win comes from the Lord,
For He alone is Stronger.

Teach us, Lord, to put our trust
In You now to prevail,
Convinced now that we surely must;
All other plans will fail.
