A victory already won.

Posted by appolus on November 28, 2022

Last night was a sleepless night for me. There was two lines that came to me in my sleep. “I’m walking in the shadow of an already setting sun.” I knew if I did not get up, that these words would not be remembered in the morning. Typically when I write a poem, the Holy Spirit will give me a line that represents the meaning He wants me to convey in words. It’s not usually in the middle of the night. It was a struggle as I was so desperately tired, but eventually I got up at about 3am and went downstairs and wrote the lines. This morning it seemed clear to me what the Holy Spirit was saying. He was speaking to someone, perhaps many, who look at their lives or a particular situation and it seems hopeless. It seems no good thing can come out of this despite your desperate prayers. So, this poem/word is to someone who has specifically asked the Lord  a question about what shall become of their desperate situation. The old adage “its always darkest before the dawn,” seems to fit here. There is a dawn coming, the sun will rise in your situation, but in the depths of the longest night it is often hard to believe. To you who asked the question of God, He says to you “the victory is already won, right now your just walking in the shadow of it.”

I'm walking in the shadow
Of an already setting sun
I'm walking in the shadow of
A victory already won

And in that victory I'll arise
O death where is your sting?
I'll stand before the Lord of Lords
And this is what I'll sing

Hallelujah hallelujah
Hallelujah to my King
Hallelujah hallelujah
O death where be thy sting?

Now I look back at the shadow 
And the shadow is no more
It's been swallowed up in victory
As I walk on through the door

It's an open door to heaven
A door no man can close
For the one who holds it open
Is the one who took the blows.
