Sword of the Spirit
She’s been equipped by God
With an effective and powerful offensive weapon
The sword of the Spirit…the word of God
Daily she takes out her sword
Polishes it, sharpens it
Then returns it to its sheath
She’s filled her heart and mind
With God’s word
So that she might not sin against Him
But in the heat of the battle
She fails to draw her weapon
The enemy has nothing to fear from an un-wielded sword
One day when she takes God at His word
When she believes and therefore speaks
That foe will retreat and by God’s power she will stand
