Satan’s Stumbling Blocks ~

To Hell with the Devil by Jimmy Paragas #5554

Watch out my Christian friend . . .
for the stumbling blocks Satan lays
he’ll sneak them out in front of you
to throw you off the righteous ways.

He’ll point out all your weaknesses,
in hopes that you will buckle and cave
he’ll make you feel pathetic
so to his lies you’ll become a slave.

He’ll tell you that you’re no good,
God wants nothing to do with you
he’ll throw your sins in your face
so his sham you won’t see through.

He’ll cause you to stray off the course,
with lustful thoughts for worldly things
he’ll let you think you deserve them
so you won’t know the deceit he brings.

He’ll make you question God’s love,
whether for you He really cares
he’ll tempt you with fear and doubt
for they are two of his biggest snares.

Watch out my Christian friend . . .
don’t let Satan cause you to stumble
lest the blocks he puts in your way
will cause you into his pit ~ tumble!

2 Corinthians 11:3

But I fear, lest by any means,
as the serpent beguiled Eve
through his subtilty, so your
minds should be corrupted
from the simplicity that is
in Christ.

Not Guilty!

Saved by Jon Tomero free photo #7929

I have walked on this earth,
for many, many years . . .
I’ve stumbled and I’ve fallen
over my doubts and my fears.

Many times I have thought,
another step I could not take
and life’s troubling journey
I just did not want to make.

I struggled with the frantic pace,
I wrestled with the anxious stride
until the day, I came to realize
I was marching to my own pride.

I knew I needed deliverance,
from the course that I was on
and that is when I felt my life
to God being forever drawn.

He set me on a new path,
and saved me from the pit
He found me not guilty
and my sins, He did acquit!

whose sin is covered.”

Survivor!

Locked and Chaned Doors by Balazas Toth free photo @9193

I’m a survivor,
I beat the odds
no longer trapped
in Satan’s claws.

Freed from evil,
the effects of sin
ever since Jesus
in my life came in.

Released from hell,
in that awful pit
no longer stuck
in the mire and grit.

He took my sins,
carried them away
then in my heart
He came to stay.

Loosened my soul,
from the ugly stain
opened heaven’s door
unlocked the chain.

I’m a survivor,
Jesus saved me
from sin’s darkness
I am set free!

2 Peter 2:4
King James Version

“For if God spared not the angels that sinned,
but cast them down to hell, and delivered
them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;”
