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)
