Tag Archives: Battle with Satan

Only On God’s Might ~

I pray for the power,
of God’s holy might . . .
in all of the battles
I may have to fight.

On my own strength,
I don’t try or endeavor
for I know that it is
as light as a feather.

Before I go out,
into the battle field
I pray that my faith
will protect and shield.

For I know my enemy,
is evil and wicked
his schemes and plans
are devious and twisted.

On my own power,
I don’t seek or strive . . .
for only on God’s might
can each battle, I survive!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:10

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

Life On The Battlefield ~

Life on the battlefield,
is no easy task . . .
for our daily strength
God we need to ask.

His Word will equip us,
so we can have victory
otherwise our lives
will be full of misery.

For our enemy is evil,
his tactics even worse
they are diabolical
corrupt and perverse.

We’ll need to be ready,
to fight the wickedness
as our enemy is known
for his ruthlessness.

Life in the faithful fight,
is no easy one . . .
but with the power of God
it’s one that will be won!

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 18:39

For thou hast girded me
with strength unto the battle:
thou hast subdued under me
those that rose up against me.

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.

Ephesians 6:12


I Will Fight The Good Fight ~

I will fight the good fight,
I will to the end . . .
my faith in Jesus
I will always defend.

I will battle my foes,
I will wager my life
even if my trust in God
causes me worldly strife.

I will go off to war,
I will face my rivals
my hope in Jesus
they will never stifle.

I will wrestle my enemy,
I will face the struggle
for my devotion to God
they can never muzzle.

I will fight the good fight,
I will not ever give in
for I know in the end . . .
Jesus is going to win!

~~~~~~

1 Timothy 6:12

Fight the good fight of faith,
lay hold on eternal life,
whereunto thou art also called,
and hast professed a good

The Battle With The Devil ~

The battle with the devil,
still today onward rages . . .
for it’s the same one fought
throughout all the ages.

It’s a constant onslaught,
of evil in high places
and the darkness that fills
in all of the vile spaces.

The war with the devil,
is still hostile and dirty
for his army is strong
their ammunition sturdy.

For we’re always under fire,
his attacks will never cease
and he will not give up . . .
til he takes away our peace.

The battle with the devil,
is an ongoing ragging war
so put on your whole armor . . .
and be ready for his roar!

~~~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 5:8

Be sober, be vigilant;
because your adversary
the devil, as a roaring lion,
walketh about, seeking
whom he may devour

Lord, Help Me With My Armor ~

Lord, help me with my armor,
help me to daily put it on
so to all of satan’s lies . .
I will not be swayed or drawn.

Help me with my breast plate,
so my heart I can defend
so into satan’s wicked ways . . .
I will not fall or descend.

Help me with my boots,
so I can stand firm and strong
so with satan and his army . . .
I can combat them head on.

Help me with my shield,
so my mind I can protect
so that to satan’s disguises . . .
I can easily detect.

Help me with my helmet,
so I may protect my head
so onto satan’s wide path . . .
I will not be enticed or lead.

Lord, help me with my armor,
so that to Your Spirit I may yield
the power of Your Word . . .
when I go out into the battle field!

~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:11-12

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.

Satan The Deceiver ~

Satan the deceiver,
the blinder of eyes
stealer of souls . . .
the spewer of lies.

The nemesis of evil,
a curse to all things good
dictator of wickedness
the ruler of falsehood.

The adversary of God,
a enemy of His people
the culprit of chaos
the master of upheaval.

The prince of darkness,
heart and mind corrupter
a legion of demons
immorality’s instructor.

Satan the deceiver,
the downfall of man
one day this world . . .
by him won’t be ran!

~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 4:4

In whom the god of this world
hath blinded the minds of them
which believe not, lest the ligh

God’s Plans Never Mans ~

God’s plans,
never mans . . .
don’t succumb
to their demands.

God’s ways,
mans no how . . .
to their requests
never bow.

God’s desires,
mans resist . . .
to their passions
don’t enlist.

God’s thoughts,
mans no way . . .
don’t ever trust
what they say.

God’s ways,
mans never . . .
from their world
you must sever!

Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the thoughts
that I think toward you,
saith the Lord,
thoughts of peace,
and not of evil,
to give you an expected end.

1 John 2:16-17

For all that is in the world,
the lust of the flesh,
and the lust of the eyes,
and the pride of life,
is not of the Father,
but is of the world.

And the world passeth away,
and the lust thereof:
but he that doeth the will
of God abideth for ever.

Mind Renewal ~

Sometimes with myself,
I get sick and tired . . .
especially since the old man
I thought had expired.

But, he seems to come back,
every now and then . . .
and I have to figure out
how to get rid of him again.

So whenever I find myself,
with the old man in a battle
on the Word I stand my ground
so my faith he can’t rattle.

For, he would love to see me,
once again in his control . . .
but, I refuse to allow him
back into my heart and soul.

Sometimes I have to fight,
the old man off with the new
that’s why I keep the spirit . . .
of my mind daily renewed!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:22-23

That ye put off concerning
the former conversation
he old man, which is corrupt
according to the deceitful lusts;

And be renewed in the spirit
of your mind;

Faint Not ~

Faint not,
do not tire
don’t forget
satan’s a liar.

Keep on,
keeping on
for your Father
and His Son.

Faint not,
do not pass out
don’t let satan
cause any doubt.

Press on,
pressing on
soon the harvest
will be drawn.

Faint not,
do not surrender
keep on pressing on . . .
into heaven’s splendor!

Born To Conquer ~

Born to grow,
mature and ripen
born so my faith
in Jesus can deepen.

Born to know,
understand and believe
born so my strength
in God I’d receive.

Born to think,
recognize and detect
born so my life
Jesus would reflect.

Born to tell apart,
to discern and define
born so I would follow
God’s divine design.

Born to grow,
to divide and conquer
born to prove to satan . . .
He that’s in me is stronger!

~~~~~~~

Colossians 1:9-10

For this cause we also,
since the day we heard it,
do not cease to pray for you,
and to desire that ye might
be filled with the knowledge
of his will in all wisdom
and spiritual understanding;

The Children of Knowledge ~

The children of knowledge,
walk in the Light . . .
yet everyday darkness
they still have to fight.

They wear the breastplate,
of their faith and love
to protect themselves
from wicked powers above.

The children of awareness,
are watchful and wise
they can see right through
satan’s disguises and lies.

They wear the helmet,
of eternal hope
the Word of God
is their righteous robe.

The children of Light,
walk in all of God’s ways
they do not fear . . .
the end time days!

~~~~~~~

1Thessalonians 5:8

But let us, who are of the day,

James 4:7

 


Wicked High Places ~

Spiritual wickedness,
we all have to fight
but first we must pray
with all of our might.

For we won’t know,
how we’re to win . . .
or have the strength
to overcome sin.

Spiritual wickedness,
aiming for our hearts
with satan we battle
unending fiery darts.

For he wants us to lose,
the hope of our salvation
by luring us into . . .
his pit of temptation.

Wicked high places,
everywhere you look . . .
but God has a battle plan
for us in the Good Book!

~~~~~~~~~~

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.”

Psalm 56:8

 

 


This Fight Is Yours Lord ~

Lord, this fight is Yours,
I give the conflict to You
for I am not sure . . .
what with it I should do.

The opposition,
is way too aggressive
outright obstinate
overtly progressive.

Lord, this contest is Yours,
I need You to take charge
the battleground for me
is just way too large.

The conflict that I am in,
is too overwhelming
my opponents are many
and oh, so unrelenting.

Lord this fight is Yours,
come save me . . .
from satan’s arrogance
and his prideful army!

Stand Your Ground ~

Hold on fast,
stand your ground
from your faith
don’t back down.

Then when attacked,
for just believing
the truth will keep . .
you from retreating.

Be consistent,
sustain your footing
in God’s Word keep
your trust putting.

Then when faced,
with opposition
your armor will be
in prime condition.

Hold on fast,
defend your position
then stand your ground
on your convictions!

~~~~~~~~

2 Samuel 23:12

But he stood in the midst of the ground,
and defended it, and slew the Philistines:
and the Lord wrought a great victory.

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.

Smoking Hot ~

I saw it approaching me,
I knew from where it came
on the very tip of it . . .
I could even see my name.

It was smoking hot,
the flames were blazing
I knew after me
satan’s dart was aiming.

It had my faith in sight,
my trust was its goal
for satan’s always shoots . . .
directly for the soul.

As I put up my shield,
 on Jesus name I called
to help me to extinguish
this flaming, fiery ball.

So, beware my friends,
if you should see the same
one of satan’s fiery darts . . .
may too have your name!

~~~~~~~~~

Above all, taking the shield of faith,
wherewith ye shall be able to quench
all the fiery darts of the wicked.

Warriors Know ~

Warriors know,
to God they need to pray
if they’re to face
the battles of the day.

So before they go,
out into the field
courage in their armor
they know to wield.

Warriors prepare,
for the fight ahead
by wearing their helmet
upon their head.

They carefully suit up,
so to stand firm
on the truths in the Bible
that they have learned.

Warriors know,
God’s armor a must
for it’s God’s power . . .
not their own they trust!

Unrepentant ~

 

 

Unrepentant,
hearts not yielding
in sin they still
are abiding.

Unremorseful,
minds unfit
to their lusts
they commit.

Unashamed,
souls not saved
care not how
they behave.

Unabashed,
darkness driven
see no need
to be forgiven.

Unrepentant,
need not be
if they’d only let . . .
Jesus set them free!

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!

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!

When The Tough Get Going ~

When the Tough Get Going ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

When the going gets tough,
the tough get braver
for they have a battle plan
that’s a real life-saver.

When the tough get going,
they become thirstier
for they know God’s Word
will make them feistier.

When the going gets tough,
the tough get bolder
for they know God’s Word
will make them soldiers.

When the tough get going,
they become hungrier
for they know God’s Word
will make them sturdier.

When the going gets tough,
the tough go to their Bible
for they know it’ll help them beat
Satan, their ultimate rival!

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!

~~~~~~~~

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 darts came fiercely flying,
from seemly out of no where
they were quick and fiery
meant more than to just scare.

He knew the exact target,
before he took aim . . .
he wanted to leave my faith
weak, broken and lame.

But, on Your promise,
I took my stand . . .
shot those blazing darts
right out of his hand.

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

Lord, yesterday satan,
tried to take me down
but, on Your holy 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!
