Quenching Fiery Darts

 

Lord help me tuck Your truth
inside of me

as I prepare
for each day

keeping my emotions in check
with Your righteousness

and by faith sending satan’s
barbs away.

**********

You are with me and provide me with all I need to face each day’s challenges.

**********

“Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,”

“and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace,”

“above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.”

Ephesians 6:14,15,16 NKJV

To Stand

 

We can put on
the full armor of God

so that we
can stand

not fighting against
flesh and blood

but the powers of darkness
at hand.

**********

I can stand in the evil day, for You are with me.

**********

“Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”

“Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”

Ephesians 6:11,12,13. NKJV

As Dear Children

 

Let the words
from my mouth

be simply
thankful ones

as an imitator
of God

lighted by
His Son.

**********

I can imitate You, for You are with me.

**********

“Therefore be imitators of God as dear children.”

“But fornication and all uncleaness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints;”

“neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks.”

“For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light.”

Ephesians 5:1,3,4,8. NKJV

Knit Together

 

We are joined together
close knit
by what each
supplies

every one
doing their part
causes growth and
edifies.

**********

You are with me and help me supply a need within the body.

**********

“. . .that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, ”

“but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head – Christ -“

“from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.”

Ephesians 4:14,15,16 NKJV

Rooted And Grounded

 

O Lord strengthen us
on the inside

by Your Holy Spirit
and might

filling us with
Your fullness

to know Your love
it’s depth, its height.

**********

I am rooted and grounded in Your love, for You are with me.

“. . . that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, “

“that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,”

“may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height – to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”

Made Alive

 

I was far off
but brought near

by the blood
of Christ

saved through faith
Your mercy and grace

once dead now I’m
alive.

**********

You are with me and make me alive.

**********

“And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins . . .”

“But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,”

“even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ . . .”

“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God . . .”
