Defeating Darkness His Way

From Ephesians 6:10-11:  “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His power.  Put on the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”

God’s people under attack

Roaring lion on the prowl

Looking for prey to devour

Evil presence brings a scowl


Days becoming the darkest

Running away from the Lord

But, hope waits like eagles’ wings

Holy Spirit comes aboard


Remaining strong with our Lord

Under His mighty power

Wearing protective armor

God’s Word will carry the hour


Our Father’s righteousness speaks

Spirit with us on this day

Withstanding what evil brings

Defeating darkness His way


Time to witness hope-filled faith

Praying daily for action

Quench evil’s flaming arrows

Calling for man’s retraction


Behind His truth, standing firm

Urging others to repent

Proclaiming Gospel of peace

Our Holy God will relent

From Psalm 85:6-7:  “Will you not revive us again, so that your people may rejoice in you?  Show us your steadfast love, O Lord, and grant us your salvation.”

    • I appreciate your thoughts. There is a silent thought of my pastor weaving through the poem (from a recent sermon). Our world is need of a revival with God’s Word front and center and prayer as the catalyst.
