Rise Up

Seems when you're on the mountaintop
there is a downhill slide,
and just when blessings flow
comes the devil at your side,
flinging arrows at your heart
and daggers at your back,
hoping to bring you down
with his surprise attack!

A little salt in the wound,
adding insult to injury,
and he thinks he has you cornered
without any hope of victory!
but you're quickly reminded
by the Holy Spirit's voice,
that if you want to triumph
you have to make the choice!

The uneasiness you felt
begins to fade away
and in the name of Jesus
you have the final say.
just like the bible said
the devil has to flee,
and with the Holy Spirit's
help, you take authority.
Praise the name of Jesus,
lift your hands and shout,
the devil is a LIAR
in case there's any doubt!

Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
