Equipped To Overcome


Equipped To Overcome
By Christine Hare Tate

Fragile is the human frame

it shatters easily,

sharp words like arrows

can inflict great injury.

Like a steady drip of water

that wears away a stone,

life can chip away at us

right down to the bone.

We need strong conviction

to walk in God’s light

and spiritual strength

to fight the good fight.

We’ll be tested to the limit

battered and abused,

mocked and persecuted

and by the enemy accused.

Despite our mortal weakness

we’re equipped by the Lord

to endure the opposition

with His two-edged sword.

God’s word is the weapon

that keeps satan on the run,
by using it against him

great victories are won.

The world, flesh and the devil

fight against our feeble frame

but keep in mind my friends…

we overcome in Jesus’ name.


“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
[John 16:33]
