“Now war arose in heaven,
Michael and his angels fighting
Against the dragon.
And the dragon and his angels fought back,
He was defeated.” (Rev. 12:7-8)
I bless you to fight in the Spirit
With weapons alien to this world,
Knowing that your foe has
Already suffered strategic loss—
The devil was not eliminated
He was defeated.
The devil was not utterly silenced
You fight differently when you
Know that you are battling
A defeated foe.
I bless you to keep loving
Knowing that the hater has been beaten.
I bless you to keep forgiving
Knowing that the accuser has already been thrown down.
Fear no evil, child of God. Fear no evil.
