Tag Archives: Battle with Satan

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!

~~~~~~~

Deuteronomy 20:4

For the Lord your God is he that
goeth with you, to fight for you
against your enemies, to save you.

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.

Ephesians 6:13

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!

~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:16

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!

Ephesians 6:11

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

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!

~~~~~

Romans 6:23

“For the wages of sin is death;
but the gift of God is eternal
life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

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.”

Sticky Note From God 04.02.17


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!

~~~~~~~~

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
profession before many witnesses.”

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!

~~~~~~~~

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.”

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!

and have overcome them:
because greater is he that is in you,
than he that is in the world.”

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!

Sticky Note To God ~ CHISTian Poetry by Deborah Ann ~ 06.25.15 ~


The father of Lies ~

To Hell with the Devil by Jimmy Paragas #5554

Satan is the father of all lies,
he’ll tell us we are no good
he’d even swear on the Bible
the cross is only made of wood.

He’ll tell us we’re worth nothing,
he’ll whisper God can’t be trusted
he’d even swear the on Bible
for our sins we won’t get busted.

He’ll make us to start to doubt,
the truth and reality of God’s Word
he’d even swear on the Bible
we can’t believe what we’ve heard.

He’ll have us question God’s character,
whether He’ll keep His promises
he’d even swear on the Bible
we’re a bunch of doubting Thomas’s.

Satan is the father of all lies,
he is the grand-champion deceiver
he’d even swear on the Bible
but he can’t fool the true believer!

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

John 8:44

“Ye are of your father the devil,
and the lusts of your father ye will do.
He was a murderer from the beginning,
and abode not in the truth,
because there is no truth in him.
When he speaketh a lie,
he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar,
and the father of it.”
