TRUST JESUS TODAY
The closer we get to God, the harder Satan tries to pull us into his snare, and none of us, as humans, are totally safe all the time. Whether it's pride or greed or something else, at times we all fall and have to get back up and ask for forgiveness, humble ourselves and fix our gaze back upon Jesus.
The Slippery One 5/26/08
Oh, Satan with your fiendish lies,
Why into my life did you fly?
You led me to believe it was God's best,
But now I find it was your bequest.
How easily we are deceived,
When all we want is to believe,
But the evil slippery one
Will have his dirty deeds done,
When we think we are wide awake,
Satan can still claim his stake,
If to the left or to the right,
We move our eyes from Jesus' sight.
Then captured one, in angst to fall,
And in the process, lose it all,
Return with spirit contrite,
To the One Who loves with all might.
Repent and humbly bow your head,
Back to the Father's arms be led,
For you are not the only one,
In Satan's snare to have come.
The closer we are to our God,
The harder Satan tries to prod
Us away into his traps,
Deceiving us into relapse.
That is why we need to stand
With our God so close at hand,
Into Jesus' eyes fix our gaze,
To keep from evil in our days.
