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!

~~~~~~~~

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!

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,
that ye may be able to stand

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 fiery battle,
every day that we face
it’s a fervent fight
to stay in the good race.

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 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 Satan schemes,
I am very much aware
he may try with his lies
but, I’ll not fall for 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!

“Submit yourselves therefore to God.
Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”

The Stairway to My Soul ~

Stairway by Laura Macky http://lauramacky.wordpress.com/

The stairway to my soul,
once was long and dark
to Satan, I was indeed
just another easy mark.

He hid in the shadows,
waiting around for me
for, God’s eternal light
he didn’t want me to see.

Each step I would climb,
he’d throw a fiery arrow
he knew how to keep me
off the straight and narrow.

Still, I kept my sights on,
the safe landing at the top
knowing his attacking me
would never end or stop.

The stairway to my soul,
now floods with God’s light
though, Satan’s still after me
I stand ready for the fight!

Eternal Perks ~

 

hopeeternal-CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Living a godly life,
is not very popular today
it’s getting much harder
to follow the true and righteous way.

It can be very lonely,
to stand up for what is right
when you speak the Gospel truth
it becomes a lifelong fight.

It takes determination,
some good old fashion discipline
when you love the things of God
you’ll be deemed a simpleton.

Many evil things in this world,
are vying for our attention
but, we must strive to do good
so to leave a faithful impression.

It is hard to live a godly life,
it takes a lot of work . . .
but, living a life pleasing to God
comes with eternal perks!

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

Titus 2:11-13
King James Version

“For the grace of God that bringeth
salvation hath appeared to all men,
Teaching us that, denying ungodliness
and worldly lusts, we should live soberly,
righteously, and godly, in this present world;
Looking for that blessed hope,
and the glorious appearing of the great
God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;”

Get Dressed!

Spiritual Warfare by Douglas Shelton free photo #5902

I thought I heard God today,
as I was laying in my bed
while my nightly slumbers
were still staggering in my head.

I opened my eyes up slowly,
and began to look around
I turned my ears towards
the mesmerizing  sound.

My mind became alert,
to the cooing, I was hearing
I tossed my blankets off
and arose without fearing.

There it was again,
a sound worth my pursuing
for I recognized the voice
of the Holy Spirit’s wooing.

I opened up my Bible,
and there it was in a verse
a promise for today
God wanted to converse.

I read the whole chapter,
and knew that I was blessed
for now I don’t have to decide . . .
how I should get dressed!

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

Ephesians 6:11-17
King James Version

“Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.  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. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:”

The Battle ~

The Battle ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Dark and light,
battle within
we fight so hard
to die to sin.

Arrows fall,
hot with fire
only God’s Word
douses the desire.

The tempter lies,
sound so sweet
without the truth
you can feel the heat.

The lion roars,
before he strikes
he’ll do anything
that he so likes.

Satan wants us,
to burn in hell
and so our souls
he’ll try to fell.

Dark and light,
battle within
but, we have Jesus
and we will win!

~~~~~~

Greater is He In You ~

faith-2 free photo

Be sober and be vigilant,
for Satan’s alive and well
always be on the alert
for the lies that he tells.

Keep your eyes on him,
for he’s roaming all around
and it brings him pleasure
when he can take you down.

The nearer you are to God,
the closer he moves in
he will use all his devices
to trap you into sin.

They call him the deceiver,
for he knows how to cheat
the Truth and the Light
right from under your feet.

So don’t be deceived,
when Satan starts to woo
for greater is He . . .
that lives inside of you!

~~~~~~~~

1 John 4:4

Lord, Take My Hand ~

Lord, Take My Hand ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Jesus, I admit defeat,
I relinquish all to You
take my hand Lord Jesus
do what only You can do.

A life without victory,
beaten down by all the loss
take my hand Lord Jesus
and lead me to Your Cross.

A heart that’s been broken,
beset by grief and pain
take my hand Lord Jesus
and lead me home again.

Restore to me my first love,
remove the stones You see
take my hand Lord Jesus
and guide me back to Thee.

Jesus, I do surrender,
my life is Yours to pursue
take my hand Lord Jesus
and bring me closer to You.
