GOING HIGHER (April 9)
There was a day when I was down,
And not much fun to be around.
I called out to the Lord on high,
“Help me, God, I don’t know why…
Things feel so heavy in my life,
There’s too much stress and too much strife.”
Then Jesus gently looked at me,
“I’ll show you what I call you to be,
The faithful one who stands on My Word,
Who trusts in Me, and the Truth you’ve heard.
I AM the One who fights your battles.
Praise My Name and the enemy rattles.
He knows he has no power over you,
As you agree that My Word is true.”
I lifted up my head and began to shout,
“Praise the Lord, I will not doubt,
God is mighty, Christ is true!
He turns the enemy into stew!
Praise the Lord, I will not fear,
Christ the Savior is always here!
Praise the Lord, He is so mighty,
He defeats the enemy and makes things tidy.”
Then the darkness began to lift,
In the atmosphere, I felt a shift,
The joy in my heart that had been stolen,
Returned to me, and it was golden!
Then I knew deep in my heart
That fighting battles is a sacred art,
And the powerful sword that I so desired,
Is the Word of God that lifts us higher,
And the praise that comes from our lips,
Is like giving God a holy kiss.
