Adjusting My Armor ~

Sometime my armor,
needs to be adjusted . . .
for with inattentiveness
it starts to get encrusted.

So with the Word of God,
my whole armor I lubricate
and with faithfulness
I grease up my breastplate.

Sometimes my armor,
needs fortification . . .
for I start to lose for God
my heartfelt appreciation.

So I take all the Verses,
enriched with gratitude
and enshroud my helmet
with a praise filled attitude.

Sometime my armor,
gets bent all out of shape . . .
so I apply the Gospel of Truth
so from satan I may escape.

I straighten up my shield,
with steadfast faith and trust
so when his fiery darts hit me . . .
my armor will not combust!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 6:13-17

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:

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
profession before many witnesses.

WOKEN ~

I am woken,
I am enlightened
by the world’s views
I am not frightened

I am alert,
to satan’s lies . . .
I know how he is
the master of disguise.

I am aware,
I am educated
by the world’s ways
I am not captivated.

I am sober,
I see what I’m up against
I know my freedoms
satan wants to repress.

I am cognizant,
I am more than woke
I can see right through . . .
satan’s mirrors and smoke!

~~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 11:14-15

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

Therefore it is no great thing
if his ministers also be
transformed as the ministers
of righteousness; whose end
shall be according to their works.

Earthy Battles ~

Earthy battles,
we all have to fight
in the light of day
or the dark of night.

But we who believe,
have a battle plan
for we know victory
is in God’s hand.

Spiritual warfare,
raging out of control
desirous of our hearts
anxious for our souls.

But we who are strong,
keep on in God trusting
for we know the powers
of those we’re wrestling.

Areas of hostility,
in places high and low
wanting to oppose us
wherever we might go.

But we who have faith,
have a solid stronghold
for onto our Rock . . .
we have a firm foothold!

~~~~~~~~

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.

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.”

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

Satan’s Graffiti ~

When satan messes,
with your heart and mind
on them his graffiti . . .
you will begin to find.

For your hope,
he will vandalize
and on your heart
he’ll write his lies.

When your faith,
satan tries to deface
let him know
you’re saved by grace.

For with your trust,
he will have a ball
and on your mind
his lies he’ll scrawl.

When satan lies to you,
don’t play chicken . . .
tell him what in your Bible
has been written!

“Then saith Jesus unto him,
Get thee hence, Satan:
for it is written,”

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!

“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.”

Salvation’s Valley ~

Salvations Tears ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There’s pain in the valley,
regret and despair
there’s grief and sorrow
plenty of spiritual warfare.

There’s a deep darkness,
a consuming hopelessness
an overwhelming feeling
of gloom and helplessness.

There’s hope anew,
in the valley of salvation
there’s an inner discovery
a spiritual revelation.

There’s a deep refection,
a recall, a remembrance
there’s prayer and pleadings
tearful cries of repentance.

There’s pain in the valley,
but, then comes the peace
when with God  . . .
our struggle’s finally cease!

~~~~~~~

2 Corinthians 7:10

“For godly sorrow worketh repentance
to salvation not to be repented of:
but the sorrow of the world worketh death.”

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 righteousness in place
for it’s the only way
we will finish the race.

We mush daily put on,
the full armor God’s given
then to the devil’s ploys
we’ll stand firm and not give in.

Now more than ever,
we must put on our battle gear
lest in these last days . . .
we’ll be overcome by fear!

Sticky Note To God ~ CHISTian Poetry by Deborah Ann ~ 12.06.15 ~


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!

A Sound Defeat ~

The battle with the enemy
will be easy to beat . . .
if you put your trust in God
He will deliver a sound defeat.

But, first you must go to Him,
and give Him your fight
then He will lead you onward
in His power, with His might.

As your battle continues on,
He’ll be your strength and Rock
protecting your front and back
until the enemy starts to balk.

He will provide for you a refuge,
a fortress and a safe place
He will defend and deliver you
put a hedge around your base.

The battle with the enemy,
will be easier to beat . . .
if you let your Lord and Savior
lead you to a sound defeat!

~~~~~~~~

2 Samuel 22:2-3
King James Version

“And he said, The Lord is my rock,
and my
fortress, and my deliverer;
The God of my rock; in him will I trust:
he is my shield,
the horn
of my salvation, my high tower,
and my refuge, my saviour;
thou savest me from 
violence.”
