The Battle Belongs to Him…

IMG_30562

Stand your ground

Don’t give in

Never let

The enemy win

He tells us lies

Always in disguise

When will we

Even realize

Luring us in

For the final kill

Using yet another

Regretful cheap thrill

Face him boldly

With your fists

Make every attempt

To resist

Laugh at his tricks

Look him straight in the face

Don’t let yourself

Become a disgrace

Pull yourself together

Don’t let him win

Your maker has taken away

All of your sin

So when temptation comes calling

You know what you must do

Don’t join the masses

But be one of the faithful few

Can’t you see

All that you’re doing

Deep down inside

It’s you you’re ruining

Escape the past

And don’t look back

Your heart just can’t handle

Another attack

These tricks and schemes

Are neverending

So brace yourself

This is just the beginning

Equip yourself

To finally take a stand

Remove all temptation

Hold onto His hand

If you start to have doubts

Or sneaky illusions

Don’t be caught in the snare

Of such destructive confusion

You have the ability

To make tough decisions

Look at your heart

And make some revisions

Remind yourself daily

To make the right choices

Then stand tall and proud

While your soul rejoices

You’ll finally be free

From the chains that bind

Keeping your eyes on Him

You won’t be left behind

It’s a challenge for sure

Not for the faint of heart

So give it your best shot

And make a fresh start

These words are not my own but given to me by the One, who forever seeks to guide my heart.  My deepest desire is to live with these thoughts ever flowing through my mind.  I’m praying for a complete transformation of my heart and soul.  I can’t keep letting the enemy defeat me.  It’s a slow death which I just can’t keep allowing.  My own good advice just isn’t enough anymore, and my only other choice is to let go and let him lead me.  After all… the battle belongs to Him.  ~M

    I have also been trying to live for Him. I will no longer allow the enemy to win because in the end, it’s us that are destroyed.

    The ups and downs, they’re just there to test us. We don’t have to follow, and when we don’t, we break through, just like you’ve said.

  8. 🙂 Of course I already truly am set free… But it feels so good just to say it and remind myself of it once and awhile.

    I think we need these reminds often. With the hustle and bustle of this life, it’s so easy to forget what He did for us, and the grace that lavished upon us, even though we don’t deserve it.
