Commanded Capability

"At the commandment of the LORD they rested in the tents, and at the commandment of the LORD they journeyed" (Numbers 9:23).  "Thy God hath commanded thy strength… that giveth strength and power unto His people" (Psalm 68:28,35).  "He is a Buckler to them that walk uprightly… that thou mayest walk in the way of good men" (Proverbs 2:7,20).  "Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world" (1 John 4:4). 

Endurance through our journey's length
And rest in times of restoration
Shall come from God who gives us strength
Through every trial and temptation. 

Our God's command shall never fail
To give us strength to do His will. 
The gates of hell shall not prevail
Against the Lord's commandment still. 

The Lord is guarding all His own
Who walk according to His way. 
The strength that He commands is shown
To those who hear Him and obey. 

O Lord our Savior and Creator,
Command our capability.
We overcome, for You are greater
Than our accusing enemy.
