Unseen Enemy

It started in a place so far away we never dreamed it would get to our country.

From Asia to Europe then the USA, it was a war with an unseen enemy.

Some people think we don’t need to worry while others say it could kill us all.

More people praying to God for answers, it is a war with an unseen enemy.

We struggle mightily upon two battle fronts one is our health the other our economy. At times we don’t have the proper weapons, it is war with an unseen enemy.

Our health professionals are fighting bravely, sickness and death and the unknown.

Trying to save all the wounded victims, it is a war with an unseen enemy.

We stay at home and keep our social distance close all the schools and nonessential business.

Even churches are no longer meeting, it is a war with an unseen enemy.

Constant reminders of the deaths and cases flattening the curve becomes our strategy.

But even so people die by the thousands, it is a war with an unseen enemy.

Many businesses considered nonessential closing their doors and laying off workers.

Forcing millions to the unemployment line, it is a war with an unseen enemy.

In the end we have to maintain unity fighting together even though apart.

We’ll lose some battles but we’ll win the war, it is a war with an unseen enemy.

It is a war with an unseen enemy. An unseen enemy.

As Christians, however, we need to remember the following:

God is our [unseen] refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

- Psalms 46:1

Be anxious for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

- Philippians 4:6-7

The more we dwell on fear and the unknown, the greater chance that fear will overwhelm us. The more we trust in our unseen God, the less fear we will experience from our unseen enemy.
