Spiritual Wickedness ~

Spiritual wickedness,
in high and low places
both in shadow’s dark
and open lit up spaces.

Evilness all around,
scouring the earth
the top of the world
evil’s plotting berth.

Wicked devilish powers,
cruel and ruthless
rulers of destruction
cold and heartless.

Vicious, vile spirits,
enemies of mankind
invisible destroyers
of hearts and minds.

Spiritual wickedness,
satan’s wolf pack . . .
so get on your armor
and be ready to attack!

~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:12-13

“For we wrestle not against
flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the darkness
of this world, against spiritual
wickedness in high places.

Wherefore take unto you
the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to
withstand in the evil day,
and having done all, to stand.”

The Well of Life ~

When the well of life,
starts running dry
and you find yourself
wondering why.

For, not long ago,
it seemed to flow
with hope and joy
wherever you’d go.

But, now it trickles,
when at its best
draining from you
your peace and rest.

And now in your soul,
there is a deep thirst
causing your faith
to be at its worst.

That’s when you need,
from Jesus a refill . . .
so the waters of life
He can again instill!

~~~~~~~~~

John 4:14

“ But whosoever drinketh of the water
that I shall give him shall never thirst;
but the water that I shall give him shall
be in him a well of water springing
up into everlasting life.

Fighting The Faithful Fight ~

 

We are all warriors,
fighting against evil
we’re all in a battle
with satan the devil.

We are all up against,
wickedness in high places
we are all fighting . . .
to stay in God’s good graces.

We all are battling,
the darkness of this age
we are all fighting
the hatred and the rage.

We are all engaged,
in a war to survive
we are all fighting
to keep our faith alive.

We are all warriors,
fighting the faithful fight
we are looking to find . . .
a way to shine God’s light!

~~~~~~~

 

Ephesians 6:12

“For we wrestle not against
flesh and blood,
but against principalities,
against powers,
against the rulers
of the darkness of this world,
against spiritual wickedness
in high places.”

Don’t Be a Sellout ~

You can tell God you’re sorry,
ask Him for forgiveness . . .
but, without true repentance
sin, still will be your weakness.

You can try to conquer sin,
but, it is impossible to do
unless you have the Holy Spirit
and His power helping you.

You can beg and you can plea,
for your sins to be forgiven
but, without turning from them
to sin, you’ll still be driven.

You can try to stay away,
from all evil and wickedness
but, without the Light in your life
you’ll still be drawn to the darkness.

You can cry, you can weep,
over your besetting sin
but, without true remorse
over them you’ll never win.

You can try to keep sin at bay,
you can try to cut it out . . .
but, without true repentance
to sin you will still sellout!

~~~~~~~~~

Luke 5:32

“I came not to call the righteous,
but sinners to repentance.”

When Confident ~

When we’re confident,
when our faith is strong
we can bet on this . . .
satan will come along.

He wants to shake us,
right off of our foundation
by saying we’re not worthy
of grace, unto salvation.

When we’re confident,
in the God whom we trust
we can be sure of this . . .
satan will come after us.

He wants us to believe,
God doesn’t hear our prayers
nor does He want to listen
all about our earthly cares.

When we’re confident,
know satan will attack
so we need to be sure
our whole armor is intact!

~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:10-11

“Finally, my brethren,
be strong in the Lord,
and in the power of his might.

Put on the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to stand
against the wiles of the devil.

Take Care ~

Take care my friend,
as you go about your day
be careful who you meet
as you go along your way.

For, there’s a lot of evil,
waiting for you out there
so make sure before you go
to use extreme care.

Take care my friend,
do not be deceived
lest your heart be harden
to what you believe.

For, the world will test you,
with it wickedness
and you must not show it
one once of willingness.

Take care my friend,
lest from God you fall away
for satan would just love . . .
to see you lead astray!

~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 3:12-13

“Take heed, brethren,
lest there be in any
of you an evil heart
of unbelief, in departing
from the living God.

But exhort one another daily,
while it is called To day;
lest any of you be hardened
through the deceitfulness of sin.”

Winning The Fight ~

Each days a battle,
we must fight
against the darkness
with God’s light.

Against the forces,
lead by the devil
against his armies
saying good is evil.

Our spiritual enemies,
are all around us
to their wicked ways
they want us to adjust.

But, we must stand,
for what we believe
and their evil lies
we must not receive.

Each day it’s a battle,
to shine God’s light
we’ll need His full armor
if we’re to win the fight!

~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:12

“For we wrestle not against
flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers,
against the rulers of the
darkness of this world, against
spiritual wickedness in high places.”

Who Hindered You ~

Who hindered you,
who got you off the path
who brought you closer
to knowing God’s wrath?

Who stopped you,
who made your heart sway
who lead you from
the straight, narrow way?

Who approached you,
who got you off track
who caused you to turn
on God your very back?

Who made you to stumble,
who caused you to waiver
who persuaded you to think
you don’t need a Savior?

Who was it that wanted you,
out of the faithful race
who said you don’t deserve
God’s mercy, love and grace?

Who is that cleaver,
who is that spiteful . . .
none other but Satan
could be so deceitful!

Galatians 5:7

“Ye did run well;
who did hinder you
that ye should not
obey the truth?”

Clouds~

Sometimes there’s a cloud,
hanging over me . . .
no matter where I look
despair is all I see.

I ask God to remove,
the gloom in my way
but, it remains no matter
how hard I try to pray.

The feeling is somber,
disheartening to say the least
and I know it is coming
from satan that old  beast.

For he wants me to be,
discouraged and joyless
he loves to make me feel
rejected and hopeless.

Lord, sometimes there’s a cloud,
dampening my view
but it simply dissipates . . .
the more I think of you!

within me
thy comforts delight my soul.”

Sifted ~

sifted-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Reaped from the field,
ready was I . . .
to meet my Savior
and give faith a try.

Just like wheat,
needing to be threshed
I found myself separating
from the things of the flesh.

Little did I know,
I too needed to be sifted
until every imperfection
was raised and lifted.

Then along came satan,
my faith he tested
but on Christ Jesus
my salvation rested.

Reaped from the field,
now I’m fully converted
for to satan lies . . .
I’ve been amply alerted!

~~~~~~~

Luke 22:31-32

“And the Lord said,
Simon, Simon,
behold,
Satan hath desired
to have you,

that he may sift
you as wheat:

But I have prayed
for thee,

that thy faith fail not: and
when thou art converted,
strengthen thy brethren.”

Pressurized ~

dont-be-pressurized-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Feeling the pressure,
from your peers
no matter your age
or number of years?

Well, you won’t collapse,
under the pressure
if you keep your eyes on
your heavenly treasure.

Being influenced,
to follow the crowd
where anything goes
everything is allowed?

Well, you needn’t fold,
under the pressure
if you go to your Bible
for a daily refresher.

Being criticized,
for how you believe
because worldly views
you refuse to receive?

Well don’t you give in,
no matter the pressure
know your faith in God
brings Him pleasure.

Being mocked,
teased and made fun of
because you rather follow
the Light from above?

Well don’t you cave in,
nor be conformed . . .
instead let your mind
in God be transformed!

~~~~~~~

Romans 12:2

“And be not conformed
to this world:
but be ye transformed
by the renewing
of your mind,
that ye may prove what is
that good, and acceptable,
and perfect, will of God.”

This Battle is God’s ~

This Battle is God's ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

I’m claiming victory,
I know who’s really in charge
I know God knows . . .
the best methods to discharge.

This battle is not mine,
it belongs to God alone
I have come to understand
His ways are not my own.

I have learned to be still,
to wait and to be quiet
and most importantly
I have learned not to quit.

For I am His soldier,
He’s enlisted me to fight
and in His strength I’ll win
by the power of His might.

So I’m claiming my victory,
way ahead of time . . .
for I know this mountain
He’ll help me to climb!

~~~~~~~~~~

2 Chronicles 20:15

“And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah,
and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem,
and thou king Jehoshaphat,
Thus saith the Lord unto you,
Be not afraid nor dismayed by
reason of this great multitude;
for the battle is not yours,
but God’s.”

A Lot More Assurance ~

A Lot More Assurance ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Lord, today I will need,
a lot more assurance
that You will give me
strength and endurance.

For it’s a daily battle,
I’m fighting out there
and I’m feeling fatigued
from the wear and tear.

Lord, today I will need,
more or Your power
to fight off the enemy
no matter what the hour.

For, the conflict I’m fighting,
is between good and evil
and every day I’m thrown
straight into its upheaval.

Lord, today I will need,
strengthen and endurance
for the fight I fight . . .
is a constant occurrence!

In It To Win It ~

In It To Win It ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Beaten, but not broken,
down, but not out
for I’m in this fight
to win the bout.

Shattered, but not crushed,
weak, but not frail
for there’s no way
Satan’s taking me to hell.

Tattered, but not torn,
bleak, but not resigned
for my heart and God’s
will always be aligned.

Fragile, but not hopeless,
mournful, but not blue
for nothing can shake
my faith, Lord in You.

Beaten, but not broken,
for I’m in it to win it . . .
that’s why you won’t see
me ever give up or quit!

~~~~~~~~

“For we wrestle not against
flesh and blood, but against

Never Lose Sight ~

Never Lose Sight ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When getting ready,
to take on the battle
ask God for courage
so not to be rattled.

For God will give you,
His power and might
and on the victory
you’ll never lose sight.

Before you get attacked,
be ready to request
all the help you need
to win the contest.

For God will grant,
strength to your soul
and bring the attack
under His control!

AWOL ~

AWOL ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

As soldiers of God,
we mustn’t be at ease
we can’t go and do
whatever we please.

We must always be,
in conflict mode
there’s no down time
in our battle code.

Our assigned posts,
we can never leave
in our daily fight
there is no reprieve.

We need to be ready,
with our battle plans
we must always obey
His fight commands.

As soldiers of God,
we mustn’t go AWOL
lest into Satan’s hands
we will surely fall!

“Be sober, be vigilant;

Gear Up ~

Armor Up ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Now more than ever,
we need to prepare . . .
the shield of our faith
we must always wear.

We must always keep on,
the helmet of salvation
hold onto to the sword
without any hesitation.

We need to be buckled,
with the truth around us
so that in God . . .
we’ll always put our trust.

We need the breastplate,
of righteous in place
for it’s the only way
we will finish the race.

We mush put on,
the full armor given
so to the devil’s ploys
we won’t ever give in.

Now more than ever,
we must put on our battle gear
lest in these last days . . .
we’ll be overcome by fear!

~~~~~~~~

“Put on the whole armour of God,

Spiritual Fatigue ~

Spiritual Fatigue ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann belka

When discouragement comes,
knocking on your door
you can be sure of this . . .
it’ll knock you to the floor.

It wants to pull the rug,
out from what you believe
discouragement knows . . .
it brings spiritual fatigue.

Discouragement is aware,
of each move you make
it wants to stop the steps
of faith that you take.

It wants to rob the hope,
that lives inside of you
discouragement will distort
what you know to be true.

Discouragement will cause,
spiritual wear and tear . . .
so when it comes knocking
give Jesus, its burden to bear!

Greater is He ~

Greater is He ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Lord, yesterday Satan,
tried to take me down
oh, how he wanted me
to hit hard on the ground.

His arrows came flying,
from out of no where
they were fiery and quick
meant more than to scare.

He knew the exact target,
before he took aim . . .
he wanted to leave me
weak, broken and lame.
.
But, on Your promise,
I took my stand . . .
and shot those arrows
right out of his hand.

I did what You said
told him to flee . . . .
that GREATER were You
who lives inside of me.

Lord, yesterday Satan,
tried to take me down
but, on Your Word . . .
I stood my ground!

It’s A Fiery Battle ~

It's A Battle ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

It’s a blazing battle,
staying in the faithful race
there’s a lot of fiery darts
everyday we have to face.

It’s a daily dying,
to our selfish need
it’s an hourly test
one we mustn’t cede.

It’s a damning contest,
Satan were up against
it’s a daily must
to put on our defense.

It’s a holy conflict,
between the old and new
it’s a deadly decision
the winning is up to you.

It’s a hostile war,
we mustn’t get fatigued
it’s a matter of trust
lest we all be deceived.

It’s a winning battle,
each day we can fight
if we just remember . . .
to keep Jesus in our sight!

Everyday Victory ~

Everyday Victory ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Everyday victory,
is ours to be had
it’s our choice . . .
to be happy or sad.

Everyday victory,
is ours to claim
it’s our choice . . .
to be strong or lame.

Everyday victory,
is ours to possess
it’s our choice . . .
to quit or to press.

Everyday victory,
is ours over sin
it’s our choice . . .
to lose or to win.

Everyday victory,
is ours to accept
it’s our choice . . .
to believe or reject.

Everyday victory,
is ours to gain
it’s our choice . . .
to fail or to strain!

Our Great Accuser ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~ No regrets - IBible Verse

When your past starts to haunt,
bringing to the surface . . .
the things you’ve done wrong
know Satan, has his purpose.

For, he loves to taunt you,
with things, you’re forgiven for
and he will try anything . . .
to re-enter, your heart’s door.

Satan is our great accuser,
discourager of our hope . . .
he’d rather see you hanging
by the threads of regret’s rope.

He wants to confuse you,
fill you with remorse and shame
he wants you to feel defeated
so your soul, he can reclaim.

So, next time you’re feeling,
his noose around your neck
just look unto the cross . . .
on Jesus, let your heart reflect!

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

Revelation 12:10

“And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven,
Now is come salvation, and strength,
and the kingdom of our God,
and the power of his Christ:
for the accuser of our brethren
is cast down, which accused them
before our God day and night.”

On Jesus’ Name I Call ~

To Hell with the Devil by Jimmy Paragas #5554

Sometimes into my head,
satan loves to crawl . . .
so that my every thought
he can attack and maul.

To his lying schemes,
I am very much aware
he may try with his lies
but, I’ll not fall into his snare.

Sometimes into my head,
satan likes to play around
so, I just say no to him . . .
whenever he comes around.

I’ll not let him take captive,
my heart or my mind
I refuse to fall into . . .
his trappings of any kind.

Sometimes into my head,
satan loves to crawl . . .
but, I can make him flee
when on Jesus’ name ~ I call!
