Agreement

Have you ever thought about

how you might have conceded?

 

That you might have agreed

to the lies

that were whispered your way?

 

The enemy of your soul

sought to convince you

 

How inadequate you are

How hopeless you should be

How nothing will ever change

How victory is not possible

and more…

 

And maybe at first

you fought the idea

 

But then you came to agree,

maybe without even thinking about it

 

You bought the lies

and thought it must be true

 

And there you have

Agreement with the enemy

 

But your Holy Spirit pure

wants you to hear Truth

 

About your identity

your hope

your destiny

about forgiveness

 

And you realize that it’s time to confess

your own agreement with the lies

 

Love covers all

when forgiveness is sought

 

Love covers all

 

And how glorious to find

that truth in that area no longer meets a wall in your mind

 

For discovery and confession and turning

have brought freedom

 

To hear and believe

what God says

 

And you know that you now agree

with His Truth for you

But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ.

– 2 Corinthians 11:3 (NIV)

 

And that about wraps it up. God is strong, and He wants you strong. So take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. And put them to use so you will be able to stand up to everything the Devil throws your way. This is no afternoon athletic contest that we’ll walk away from and forget about in a couple of hours. This is for keeps, a life-or-death fight to the finish against the Devil and all his angels.

– Ephesians 6:10-12 (MSG)

 

…for love covers a multitude of sins.

– 1 Peter 4:8 (NLT)

 

Gently instruct those who oppose the truth. Perhaps God will change those people’s hearts, and they will learn the truth. Then they will come to their senses and escape from the devil’s trap. For they have been held captive by him to do whatever he wants.

– 2 Timothy 2:25,26 (NLT)
