Speak words of faith

Speak words of faith,
Fear not any wraith.
Be bold in the Lord God,
And keep your vision broad.

Speak not fear nor despair,
But of each word be aware.
Guard your heart with full attention,
As life’s issues from it have ascension.

Speak only what is right,
Keep on your tongue wise insight.
Talk to encourage and guide,
Let your speech be courteous and dignified.

Speak never words unseemly and unwise,
Lest good fortune you lose and despise.
May your confession be from God’s word,
That your life be sure and not blurred.

Do not idolise those close to the Lord

We often make the people closest to the Lord into our idols. This is why Moses was not given a public burial, because God knew the people would have dug up his bones and worshiped them, making them into idols and relics, which is what eventually happened to Moses’s staff. It’s also why he veiled his face, to keep himself from pride, and other from worshiping him. (Robert Brownell)

Twin deceptions

A man of God fell into temptation, he said he heard 2 messages from the enemy. Both of these were very crafty and destructive. The first message was “As long as you’re down here in sin, you might as well enjoy the fruit.” When he took this message to heart, he engaged in all kinds of sin that were never even his weaknesses. The second message was, “You can turn back to God tomorrow.” When he took that message to heart, tomorrow never came until a year later in jail.

Don’t be too busy to do good

Tougher than the Holy life

Compared to the Holy life the sinful life is tougher,
For the wages of sin in eternal life is rougher.
In the Holy life you’re rejected by worldly beings,
While in the sinful life you’re rejected by heavenly beings.

Sin may seem to have pleasure in its initial payoff,
But from eternal joy it’s simply much way off.
Now holiness makes less friends,
While sinfulness begets hopeless ends.

Some think of sin as useful tool,
Only to be caught up like a fool.
Beware that anger, hate and regret,
In Hell does the sinner get.

The undiscerned life one must avoid

The undiscerned life one must avoid,
For it may be of wisdom devoid.
People who wander through choices,
Better be vary of deceitful voices.

Examine your life in full or in parts,
Till all foolishness and timidity departs.
Ask of the Lord and Him by prayer approach,
For he gives wisdom generously without reproach.

For why must you keep blindly shopping,
From tricksters and then keep dropping?
Why must you go for a risky drive,
Only to crash by a reckless dive?

Value your life and its action,
Always choose a sensible reaction.
Be of a good strong spine,
Then your decisions will be fine.

Your precious life, is to you God’s gift,
So by your conduct, to Him your praises lift.
Breathe each breath with a holy mission,
So that you live with Divine provision.

Admire not your looks

Admire not yourself too much,
Nor be too proud as such,
Acknowledge your beauty if you must,
But be always humble, true and just.

Know that Lucifer’s pride in his beauty did swell,
So much that he against God did rebel.
This angel’s sin wasn’t small,
From his heavenly place he did fall.

In being humble always do well,
Focus on heaven and not towards hell.
Use not your beauty to cause others to lust,
For sin causes tempters to return to dust.

By your looks don’t think yourself great,
Lest your due reward be an evil fate.
Be like the Holy Angels who have strength and beauty,
Yet they worship God and do their duty.

Voices of right and wrong

There are voices either right or wrong,
Which can turn you weak or make strong.
Acting upon any of them for long,
Clearly shows to whom you belong.

But remember for every holy vision,
You can expect God’s provision.
While in trances vile, unclear or blurry,
You can expect it uninspired and weary.

Voices at times may guide or may provoke,
In such cases always good action invoke.
Not all voices are to be trusted,
Some could be like needles rusted.

The worlds voices may seem natural,
Even glamorous, rational or cultural.
Then ask if the voices are right,
Is it worth truly your soul and might?

Those who know Christ also know his voice,
If you are familiar with his Word do rejoice.
Listen not to any lustful or rebellious sprite,
Instead focus on the Gospel all light.

If you can’t hear God speaking…

Do not let riches entice you

Do not ever let riches entice you,
Lest God in heaven go on to despise you.
Do not let money and gold be your shield,
Lest you perish like the grass of the field.

Do not love unrighteous wealth,
Lest it hamper your spiritual health.
Do not desire sweet water stolen,
Lest it cause pride all swollen.

Do not work for mammon in conceit,
Lest you start living in deceit.
Do not strive for vain glory,
Lest you start off to a bad story.
