The enemy’s tough, eats men alive,
Your spirit can weaken, take a nose dive,
Evil forces plot, it’s their job to connive,
If you’re unaware, they’ll deceive you with jive,
You’ll feel milked of your purpose, robbed of your drive,
And as you falter, Satan gives a high five,
Cause he’s master of trouble, King bee of the hive,
The road’s full of pitfalls, all the wires are live,
To make you stumble, all Hell will strive,
Your confidence and peace they will try to deprive,
We must stand through it all if to glory we will arrive,
And remember the thing from which strength we derive,
God’s still on his throne, so I know we’ll survive.
Hang in there fellow saints!! The going is tough and even though we are not tough but weaklings compared to our enemy, our Captain is not. Rely on him regardless of the strife you get into and he will deliver you. Be faithful to him in good and bad and he will stand by you. Even if you are not faithful he will stand by you anyway. I know (believe me, I know) that it is hard to remember this most basic belief of Christianity when you are neck deep in sewage but keep in mind that God can and will do wonders with the part of you that is clean.
Stand in the face of our enemy. That is all God asks of us. Resist the devil and he will flee from you in the mighty name of Jesus.
