Poem: Armor of God Empty
PostSubject: Poem: Armor of God   Poem: Armor of God EmptyThu Apr 18, 2013 9:44 am

Clothe yourself in the full armor of God
and be able to withstand the Devilís schemes;
know that heís only the father of lies,
looking to destroy your earthly dreams.

Cover yourself with Christís Breastplate
of Righteousness and protect your torn heart;
your essence has been purchased for His Kingdom,
meaning that youíre meantÖ to be set apart.

Gird your waist with the Belt of Truth
and stand firm with integrity and honesty;
donít allow your fleshís nature to interfere
with conditions that you need observe and see.

Shod your feet with the Gospelís peace;
keep from searching for earthly trouble;
instead congregate with the Body of Christ
and focus on your faith becoming redoubled.

The ongoing battle is not with flesh and blood;
wield Faithís Shield to quench lifeís fiery darts.
Remember that the wiles of the Satan are limited!
So outmaneuver him with your spiritual smarts.

Put on your Helmet of Salvation,
for the battles are within oneís mind.
Allow the Divine knowledge of The Word
to resonate with your spirit and findÖ

yourself continually praying in the spirit
and with understanding on all occasions.
Be alert to His transformational messages,
for upholding Godly principles and persuasions.

Resist the Devil now and he will flee;
endeavor to thwart the enemyís attack;
be strong in the Lord with power of His might;
promises of victory have been already stacked.

For we donít wage war with human methods and plans.
We use mighty weapons to knock down evil strongholds
and breakdown every proud argument that keeps people
from knowing GodÖ as His Kingdom, continues to unfold.
