Satan is deceiving us through association
By persuading us to put our faith in things among God’s creation
That has no authority or power to forgive, deliver, heal and save;
Therefore, we must be careful in placing our faith.
There are those who are trusting in mother and father,
But what happens when our dependence upon them becomes a bother,
A nuisance that makes them hate to see us coming their way,
And a moment out of your presence would make their day.
There are those who are placing faith in sisters and brothers,
And even those who completely trust friends, families and others.
What happens when someone else gains their love, concern and care,
And from that moment on, when you need them, they are not there?
There are those who are placing faith in husband and wife,
But what happens when they deceive you or walks out of your life?
There are those who are placing there faith in their jobs and career
And hold their position and prestige to them so closely and so dear;
But, what happens when you have no job to call your own?
How then will you maintain your car, your fashion and your home?
There are those who are placing faith in Pastors, Ministers and Prophets too,
But, what happens when they fall into sin because of what they’re going through?
Put not your faith in any man,
And this is a fact you must accept and understand;
You are human and they are too,
And they are very well capable of deceiving and hurting you.
Put all of your trust in the Father above;
For, He is the only one who has unconditional and faithful love.
He is the only one who can and will stand by the promises He makes;
Therefore, your direction should be toward God when placing your faith.
