You’ve Been Played

I say to you

and I say to myself


Don’t get played


Don’t walk into the trap

the enemy has set for you


He is slick

and he is sneaky


He doesn’t play fair


And before you know it

you’re caught up in the same old stuff


You can’t get over

how clueless the people around you are


You grab hold

of those old vices

those addictions

those escapes


You stray from truth

and become complacent


You forget the now

and that being offended is a choice


You forget that grace should reign

in you

and through you


And you’ve been played


By the one who seeks to divide

who seeks to destroy

who wants you bitter

who desires your downfall


And when you realize you’ve been played

you don’t hesitate


You run back

to Solid

to Grace

to Authentic

to Alert

to Unity

to Love


You embrace your Father

and thank Him


for opening your eyes once again


to the true enemy

The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows].

– John 10:10 (AMP)


When you forgive this man, I forgive him, too. And when I forgive whatever needs to be forgiven, I do so with Christ’s authority for your benefit,  so that satan will not outsmart us. For we are familiar with his evil schemes.

– 2 Corinthians 2:9-11 (NLT)


He was a murderer from the beginning. He has always hated the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies.

– John 8:44 (NLT)


Because God’s children are human beings—made of flesh and blood—the Son also became flesh and blood. For only as a human being could He die, and only by dying could He break the power of the devil, who had the power of death.

– Hebrews 2:14 (NLT)
