Tricks of the Devil
Be advised... don't be surprised...
by our nemesis the devil.
If he's involved you can be sure…
the playing field's not level.
The devil has a storehouse,
of dirty tricks unused.
They're all designed to work on "you"
to be sure that you're abused.
Don't take the devil lightly...
he's most serious of his works.
He'll try to drag you into sin
wherever evil lurks.
That's his job... he enjoys it...
he wants to get us all.
He sets us up and tricks us,
then rejoices when we fall.
He tempts you at your weakest point
and makes the sin appealing.
He lists them all for later on...
he excels in double-dealing.
For every sin that we perform…
there is a price to pay.
Don't think for a minute,
we have made a get-a-way.
The devil has experience
in all our evil ways.
He tries to give us lustful thoughts
and stop our Godly praise.
The devil has no love for you...
keep that thought in mind.
He'd like to pull you into hell…
with whatever sin he'd find.
Don't think that you're a match for him...
he really is quite smart.
He knows what evil's tempt you
and he has his own chart.
The devil's plans can be witheld
despite what you have heard.
Rebut him with the scriptures...
that we find in The Word.
The outcome of the plans we make
could vary day by day.
Just focus on your GOD above
and HE will make a way.
Don't let the devil shake you
or cause you much concern.
His hope is that he trip's you up
and makes sure that you burn.
So be aware of your surroundings
like a loyal scout.
If you suspect the devil's there...
tell him to "get out".
Whatever plan you have in life,
our GOD said HE'LL assist you.
The devil on the other hand...
is sworn to then resist you.
He'd like a lot of company
on his final trip to hell.
We're in for quite a battle...
and only time will tell.
The devils plan... when put in motion...
is to try to choke us.
Turn to GOD with your devotion...
to HIM maintain your focus.
To arm yourself for battle
is the best step you can take.
When you are in the WORD of GOD
your faith he cannot shake.
He's known of you, and your arrival
from your time of birth.
He tries to keep you in your sins
while you're here on earth.
The most effective plan to have,
is to ask JESUS to the fray.
That's how we're told we should "resist"
and then he'll run away.
Other than that... you're on your own...
just keep on the right track.
But above all advice that you see here...
Remember… JESUS has got your back!!!

¶Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast [our] profession.
For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as [we are, yet] without sin.
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
