Don't let me hurt with these two helping hands again
A lot of reasons Satan gives us. We say, "Don't worry, God forgives us!"
But what excuse could I give Christ to hit humans?
Don't let me run to war with comrades, boots and gun
I'm not saying it's not right or that there's not a righteous fight
I can't discern the time to kill if there is one
Don't let me seek a chance to prove my wretched self
You have much more than tongue and word; yes, to fight You is absurd
And who is Christ in battle to need help?
Don't let me speak with any malice in my mouth
It tastes like teeth against the lip and this is not a clever quip
I think I've seen enough of matters going south
Don't let me find myself immersed in evil thoughts
My flesh was forfeit at the cross, but my heart and soul were not
This peace I have came to me at the highest cost
Matthew 5:39 KJV But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.
2nd Corinthians 3-5 KJV For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
Exodus 14:14 KJV The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace
Psalm 127:1 KJV ...Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
