Preserve Me From Fear

“Preserve my life from fear of the enemy.”  Psalms 64:1

I noticed that David didn’t ask to be preserved from the enemy.

Lord, preserve us from our fears today. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Preserve Us

Preserve us from
fear today, Lord

from  false evidence
appearing real

that we may walk
by faith in You, Lord

and not by how
we may feel.

(I thought the words in italics were a quote of Corrie Ten Boom, but then read that the origin is unknown.)

No Compensation

“For we have been sold, my people and I, to be destroyed, to be killed, and to be annihilated. Had we been sold as male and female slaves, I would have held my tongue, although the enemy could never compensate for the king’s loss.”  Esther 7:4

We can’t be snatched away from our King.

Lord, thank You for valuing us and treasuring us , for keeping and covering us from the schemes of the enemy.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

For We Are His

How could the enemy
ever compensate
for taking one
of His own away?

For He paid
the highest price for us
guarding us closely
every moment of the day.

On The Verge

“And he shall say to them, ‘Hear, O Israel: Today you are on the verge of battle with your enemies; do not let your heart faint, do not be afraid, and do not tremble or be terrified of them’.” Deuteronomy 20:3

The people of Israel HAD to enter into battle. So do we.

Oh Lord, we desire to see and enter onto the spiritual battlefield before us each day. And here is a simple poem . . .

The Good Fight

I’m on the verge of battle
but not even aware
so the enemy keeps taking
everything that’s there.

But You have given me a weapon
it’s powerful and called prayer –
time to awake and be a warrior,
to truly fight if indeed I care.

The Silent Defense

“Then Pilot said to Him, ‘Do you not hear how many things they testify against You?'” Matthew 27:13
“And He answered Him not one word, so that the governor marveled greatly.” Matthew 27:14

We have an enemy who threatens and accuses us constantly.

Help us remember, Lord, not to waste our time and energy defending ourselves to satan. You took care of all that on the cross. And here’s a simple poem . . .

His Witness Protection Program

Sometimes silence
is our best defense

when we are accused of
what we never did

and the truth gets twisted
into a giant mess

we can quiet our hearts
beneath His righteousness.

Has Jesus ever asked you to keep still while you were accused?
