I will not listen to the voice of the enemy,
As he beckons to my weakness,
And infiltrates the deepest epicenter,
Of my desires.

I will not heed the call of temptation,
As it glistens like gold before me,
For I know the vomit beneath the surface,
Of its glimmer.

I will not listen to the words of reason,
As they speak lies and atrocities,
Into ears that are all too aware,
Of their deception.

I will not. I will not.
I will not weaken,
My stance,
Against,
Satan.

I will not fall for his tricks.
I will not bear the weight of lies.
I will not open the door,
I will not uncover my soul,
– make vulnerable my spirit –
And feed my flesh.

I will not. I will not.
I will not weaken,
My stance,
Against,
Satan.

Be silent old temptation!
I walk in new deliverance.
Be quiet foolish weakness!
I press on with new sustenance.
Be gone foul dog of disobedience!
I emerge in surrendered submission.

I crucify this paralyzing demon,
Sent to drag me into past oppression.
I reject this old temptation,
Sent to cripple my spiritual progress.
I slam shut every door and opening,
That the enemy is using to
Communicate.
With.
Me.

I refuse. I refuse. I refuse.
I refuse to withdraw,
My full victory,
Over Satan.

For I am more than a conqueror.

7 And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure. 8 Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. 9 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong. (2 Corinthians 12:7-10, New King James Version)

28 And they stripped Him and put a scarlet robe on Him. 29 When they had twisted a crown of thorns, they put it on His head, and a reed in His right hand. And they bowed the knee before Him and mocked Him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!” 30 Then they spat on Him, and took the reed and struck Him on the head. (Matthew 27:28-30, New King James Version)

 

 

Food 4 Thought

Is it possible that the crown of thorns and Paul’s thorn in the flesh are related?

Is it possible that if Paul suffered a messenger of Satan, then the crown of thorns represent the suffering of Christ caused by a multitude of Satanic messengers sent to prevent His redemptive destiny?
