The Foe

The Foe
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow


There is a voice that comes to you
with whisperings so near;
Cunning and deceptive words,
are spoken in your ear.
The reason why this happens
is obvious and clear-
To take you into bondage
and bind you up with fear.

Reject each word that comes to you,
and here’s the reason why;
It’s spoken by your enemy,
who’s voice is called ‘the lie’.
Be strong and courageous,
no reason to be shy;
Resist him now in Jesus’ name,
and bid him a goodbye!

Goodbye my foe,
It’s time to go,
Flee in Jesus name…
You are a defeated foe,
Goodbye, in Jesus’ name!

Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you (James 4:7 NKJV).

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. (1Peter 5:8-9 NKJV).
