The world may tell us to worship idols;
The new car or brand new house;
The spouse wearing the brand new blouse
Or the one with jeans by Levi Strauss.
The world puts a fire to our feet;
Wants to throw us into the heat
And watch us burn.
Should we change or go down in defeat?
There is a Spiritual warfare going on.
We face a foe;
We face forces;
They do not want us to know.
But God is amazing.
The Blazing furnace didn’t bring harm
To Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego
And deceit will not harm us with its charm.
No other god can save in this way.
The world can only offer demotions
But because the victory in Jesus
There is offered eternal promotions.
