We make it too easy,
For the one who’s name isn’t worthy of being mentioned,
But I will choose to call him out.
The serpent of old, accuser, and foe effortlessly recieves power.
By replacing the truth of the matter with diagnoses, pride, fatigue, substance induced minds, and business, we continue to let his plans go unnoticed.
Instead of calling the darkness by name, we give him room to grow and linger.
Instead of choosing to fight and join the war, we settle for complacent habits of self-medicating, accepting passionless lifestyles, and pressing on in our cyclic routines.
The vulnerability in the moments we struggle, suffer, and inebriate ourselves, give way to the enemy to slither in.
To protect your heart, means to be aware of his schemes.
To know your enemy,
You must be confident in what he is after…
He is after your joy in knowing that you are unconditionally loved by God,
And the peace of mind that comes from having no fear of death.
Pick up the shield.
