Grace in the Battles

From Blog09

Only by grace we enter,
But the wars must be fought and won.
Only by grace we enter,
And fight 'til the battle's done.

God gives the plan,
And God gives the land,
But ours is the victory,
And we must stand!

Stand firm, then, brothers,
Stand firm in the Lord.
March forth, then, brothers,
And take up your sword.

God gives you victory,
Joy and delight,
But gives almost nothing
Without a good fight.

And he said to the people, "Go forward. March around the city and let the armed men pass on before the ark of the LORD."

--Joshua 6:7, ESV
