Satan Doesn’t Care ~

Satan does not care,
who his victim is . . .
all he cares about
is who he can call his.

He will take anyone,
who you are is no big deal
as long as your heart and soul
from God he can steal.

Satan does not care,
how he gets a hold of you
all he cares about
is how your mind he can skew.

He will use any method,
to confuse and deceive
so that he can get you
not in God to believe.

Satan does not care,
who he catches or devours
so be ever watchful . . .
lest you succumb to his powers!

~~~~~~

1 Peter 5:8

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

Nameless Faces ~

Spiritual warfare,
in heavenly places
sinister, vile forces
with nameless faces.

Evil and wickedness,
we’re all up against
the armor of God
is our only defense.

Sober and watchful,
we have got to be
for the devil prowls
to devour you and me.

Submitting to God,
withstanding the day
trusting in His word
to keep darkness at bay.

Spiritual warfare,
each day we must fight
for even satan disguises . . .
himself as the true light!

~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:11

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

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.”

2 Corinthians 11:14

“And no marvel;
for Satan himself
is transformed into
an angel of light.”

Wresting With My Spirit ~

Sometimes with my spirit,
I use to wrestle with . . .
I’d toss and I’d turn over
whether God was just a myth.

I tussled with the thoughts,
of God’s mercy and His grace
I contended with the fact
that I’d ever see His face.

Sometimes with my heart,
I’d have a great debate
over whether heaven
would be my eternal fate.

I mulled around in my mind,
if Jesus died for me
and whether from my sins
I’d ever really be set free.

 I use to wrestle with,
the very enemy of my soul . . .
but, now to his attacks I’m aware
and refuse to give him control!

I’ve Not The Power ~

In myself,
I haven’t the power
to outrun satan
when he’s out to devour.

So, my spiritual sneakers,
I am putting on . . .
to insure this race
can be victoriously won.

I’ll pull up my laces,
God’s Word will be the knot
so to satan’s snares
off guard, I’ll not be caught.

With my Bible verses,
I’ll plan each of my steps
so I can remain diligent
in following the concepts.

In myself,
I haven’t the power
but, with God’s strength
satan, I will overpower!

1 Peter 5:8

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

Philippians 3:14

“I press toward the mark
for the prize of the high
calling of God in Christ Jesus.”

Psalm 119:32

I will run the way
of thy commandments,
when thou shalt
enlarge my heart.”

My Sights Are Set ~

My sights are set,
directly before me
my eyes look forward
to the glory I’ll see.

I concentrate on the path,
dependable and straight
I keep my feet marching
towards the narrow gate.

My eyes are kept alert,
for satan’s pitfall
my legs move onward
so into them I won’t fall.

My steps are committed,
to God and His ways
onto the worldly ones
I set not my gaze.

My sights are set,
fixed on going straight
my feet are pointed
right to the narrow gate!

~~~~~~

Proverbs 4:25-27

“Let thine eyes look right on,
and let thine eyelids look
straight before thee.

Ponder the path of thy feet,
and let all thy ways be
established.

Turn not to the right hand
nor to the left:
remove thy foot from evil.”

Prayer Prepares Us ~

prayer-changes-you-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Prayer changes,
our thoughts
keeps our eyes on
satan’s plots.

Prayer prepares us,
to hold on fast
keeps our faith
sober and steadfast.

Prayer strengthens,
us with power
supplies courage
to the final hour.

Prayer keeps us,
fervently watchful
helps us to remain
fiercely faithful.

Prayer changes,
our thinking
it readies our eyes
for the twinkling!

be ye therefore sober,
and watch unto prayer.”

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!

Red Flag Warning ~

Red Flag ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Today more than ever,
we need to be alert . . .
when with temptation
we begin to flirt.

We need to treat,
all temptation as a threat
so that we’re not filled
with remorse or regret.

We need to consider,
the warnings they create
our spiritual senses . . .
we must always elevate.

We need to be sober,
to the flags that are red
unless unto temptation
we might fall into bed.

Today more than ever,
we must not be ignorant
temptation must be treated
as a threat imminent!

~~~~~~~~~~

Galatians 5:16

“This I say then,
Walk in the Spirit,

and ye shall not fulfil
the lust of the flesh.”

Be Sober, Be Alert ~

Be Sober, Be Alert ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~

Tonight I want to warn you,
about the devil’s tricks . . .
and some of the masked ways
he loves to get his kicks.

He has a bag of treats,
filled with plenty of sweets
he uses them to tempt us
as he roams on our streets.

Inside his goodie bag,
are perversions of all kinds
some will warp our souls
others with deprave our minds.

The devil is pretty sneaky,
his treats are his disguises
he offers them with a smile
so we’ll believe in all his lies.

He is bold and he is daring,
on any door he will knock
looking to deceive all he can
as he goes around the block.

So tonight I am warning you,
be sober, vigilant and alert . . .
for the devil he will devour you
and you’ll end up being his dessert!

 the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about,
seeking whom he may devour:
