God Can't Be Beat

God Can't Be Beat

The world Satan has so deceived

Through wanton lust for sin

But through Godís gift of faith received

Will see His children win

Knowledge that God The Lord is real

We purchase through belief

When in due course Godís strength we feel

Itís then to Satanís grief

The devil seeks to keep us blind

The truth he tries to hide

But God is never hard to find

With Jesus as oneís guide

We need but come to seek His face

The Lord God true and just

Will wrap us in His warm embrace

To Satanís sheer disgust

Power through prayer will Christ bestow

To cast the foe from sight

Though God at times may seem one slow

His timingís always right

Satan would have us think him dead

So man from Christ would stray

But those who stand; the Lord has said

Will live to win the day

Through faith alone we learn to trust

Through faith, we learn to please

Faith also brings to eat the dust

The devil to his knees

Through Christ whoís first and will be last

Who lives though once was dead

When Satan tells you of your past

Remind Him whatís ahead.....††

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
