I woke up this morning with the awareness that I needed a new song for our free monthly song-give-away. As I began to ponder which new song I needed to release, I felt an urging of the Holy Spirit that He would give me a new song...that very day! I had no idea what the song might entail...until a friend asked me to review a movie trailer she had created depicting the need for training in spiritual warfare. Coupled with the fact thatin three days we would be celebrating our nation's independence from tyranny, I was overwhelmed with the need for the body of Christ to wake up to the reality of spiritual warfare. In the film trailer, much of the action depicted entailed sword fighting as a visual representation of a spiritual truth. God's Word is my Sword. As I meditated on that Truth, this song was born. It is a hymn of declaration and faith.
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ, and we are ready to punish all disobedience, whenever your obedience is complete.
