Roaring Lion


Roaring Lion
By Christine Hare Tate

He’ll make you feel guilty,
whisper false accusations
will bring up past sins
and endless temptations!
He uses lies and tactics
trying to wear you out,
plus relentless taunting,
questions and doubt!

Looking for victims
satan prowls around
like a roaring lion
until one is found.
This is his strategy
but stay on course,
you’re equipped by the Lord
with every resource!

God has given you authority
over principalities and powers,
so when the devil attacks
you don’t have to cower!
With weapons of warfare
and the two-edged sword,
demand that he flee
in the name of the Lord!


‘Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings.’
[1 Peter 5:8-9]
