Fight of Faith

"The LORD… turned the kingdom unto David" (1 Chronicles 10:14).  "Blessed are they that keep His testimonies, and that seek Him with the whole heart" (Psalm 119:2).  "The lips of the righteous feed many, but fools die for want of wisdom" (Proverbs 10:21).  "Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life… Keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called, which some professing have erred concerning the faith" (1 Timothy 6:12-21).   

It wasn't David's strategy
Or greater strength that won the fight;  
It was his heart that God could see
Was seeking Him with all his might. 

The fight of faith today is needed
Where lack of wisdom slays the fool,
Where God's instruction goes unheeded,
And Satan's lies are taught in school. 

The evidence for truth is plain,
Yet oppositions masked as science
Are cloaked with babblings that are vain,
Demanding blind and full compliance. 

We fight the fight of faith, O Lord,
Against the falsehood of our day
Equipped now with Your Spirit's sword,
The Word of truth, which lights our way.
