When the Devil Shouts Your Name

From Blog10


When the devil shouts your name
Offering both peace and fame,
Calling you to come and dine--
"Do step in. The pleasure's mine"--
Resist him then with words of steel,
Quoted truth--not what you feel.
God's pure words will spoil his fun,
Make him turn his tail and run.
You will find the victory
Through the Lord. Believe and see!
The Lord will rescue you. You'll be
Safe and clean. He'll set you free!

So place yourselves under God's authority.
Resist the devil, and he will run away from you.
Come close to God, and he will come close to you.
Clean up your lives, you sinners,
and clear your minds, you doubters.

--James 4:7-8, GOD'S WORD translation

Amen! The Word of God is our strong shield against the temptations of the evil one. He starts out as our enticer and ends up our accuser. But the Word of God is our sure defense and life-preserver. All glory and thanks to Him who loves us so faithfully.
