The Battle Within ( by Fenny West)

The battle within

Is a battle with sin

The battle for righteousness

As oaks of righteousness.


The battle you face

Is a battle of grace

The one God gave

Through which you were saved.


The battle you see

Shouldn’t be a mystery

Against the adversary,

No matter how fiery.


The battle is for you to win

Win well against Satan and sin

For you have a new nature

Packaged well for a great future.


Jesus won the war for you

For you to have a breakthrough

Therefore stand your ground

Stand firm on the truth you’ve found.


Press on to the every end

Know that in Christ you have a Friend

Who sticks closer than a brother.

He’ll be with you summer or winter.


19   For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice.

20   Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me.

21   I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good.

22   For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man.

23   But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.

24   O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?

25   I thank God — through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin.


Romans 8: Free from Indwelling Sin

1     There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.

2     For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.


Walking in the Spirit

16   I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

17   For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish.

18   But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
