Seek, And You Shall Find!
By June Stein
I feel, in my heart and soul, that evil times are here,
I pray, and try to understand the darkness that is near,
And then to seek what God would have me do, within His plan,
I turn to Scripture, longing to find the answer, if I can.
To be in quiet, sweet communion is what I love the best,
Withdrawn from the world, and enjoying the Lord’s rest,
But would He have me leave the comfort of His Arms,
To speak of Satan’s inroads; perhaps to spread the alarm?
In Scripture, I find, “You were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord.”
“Have nothing to do with the deeds of darkness, but expose them”, is in the Word,
“Everything exposed by the light becomes visible” – this is why it is said,
“Wake up, O sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”
“Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in His mighty Power.”
These words there for me, for guidance in this dark hour.
“Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against Satan’s schemes,
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood,
But against the rulers, against the authorities.”
“Against the powers of this dark world, and against
the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms,
Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able
to stand your ground, when the day of evil comes,
So that you will be able to stand your ground,
and after you have done all, to stand.
Stand firm then, with the belt of Truth buckled around your waist,
And the breastplate of righteousness in place,
Have your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.”
And take up the shield of faith, with which YOU CAN extinguish
ALL the flaming arrows of the evil one.
Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is in the Word of God,
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.
With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.”
Oh yes, the Word of God never fails, and it is there for me, today,
God knew I would need His armor, and His Light to show my way,
And so, when I see evil things in the dark, I feel compelled to speak,
God will move as He chooses, but in His strength and light, we needn’t be meek.
From White House podium, and ‘some’ pulpits,
They speak of the need for “collective salvation”,
As though the salvation in Jesus Christ needs ‘collective works’ for its validation…
Through works the government will supply in its largess.
It’s time to shine light on the darkness!
Let us all stand in the Light of the Cross, in the armor our God has provided,
From every corner of this land, may the TRUTH go out for His harvest!
