Flex Your Faith Muscle!

The Battle Within by Diorama Studios free phot # 4028

There is no temptation,
no bait, no trap, no lure
that Satan won’t use on you
so your soul he can secure.

He will throw out anything,
that he thinks will entice you
and he knows before hand
just what He wants to do.

But, God has promised us,
that if in Him we stay faithful
He will help us to withstand
temptations push and pull.

For there’s been no attraction,
that’s not common to all man
God knows what we can bear
and He has for us an exit plan.

So, next time Satan tempts you,
and he tries to confuse or perplex
just rely on the Lord’s strength
then let your faith muscle flex!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 10:13
King James Version

“There hath no temptation taken you but such
as is common to man: but God is faithful, who
will not suffer you to be tempted above that
ye are able; but will with the temptation also
make a way to escape, that ye may be able
to bear it.”

If The Lord Is Our Shepherd ~

If The Lord is Our Shepherd ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

If the Lord is our Shepherd,
then why do we still want?
If He supplies all our needs,
then why do our lacks still taunt?

If besides still waters He leads,
then why do we still fear?
If He fills us with quietness,
then why is it not here?

If green pastures bring peace,
then why are we still stressed?
If He leaves us not lacking,
then why don’t we feel blessed?

If He restores our soul,
then why do we still doubt?
If He satisfies our deep thirst,
then why is their still a drought?

If in righteousness He guides,
then why do we still wander?
If the Lord is your True Shepherd,
these things . . .
we would not have to ponder!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 23:1-3
King James Version

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.

My God’s Before Me

When life makes no sense,
and obstacles are all I see
I am not disappointed
for my God ~ is before me.

When others have their say,
and we can’t seem to agree
I am not discouraged
for my God ~ is before me.

When sickness takes its hold,
and the pain will not flee
I am not dishearten
for my God ~ is before me.

When my world crashes down,
and troubles are all I foresee
I am not depressed
for my God ~ is before me.

When sorrow comes my way,
and grief has me on my knees
I am not distraught
for my God ~ is before me.

When this day is finally over,
and I say my nightly plea
I am not dispirited
for my God is ~ with me!

Psalm 16:8
King James Version

“I have set the Lord always before me.
Because he is at my right hand,
I will not be shaken.”
