As God plants seeds, so does the devil
Planting seeds of many kinds of evil
Resist and he
Will surely flee
Just as we have many defenses in place
He has many weapons in his storage space
Doubt is poison
Depression is prison
How do I praise My Lord no matter how I feel?
Isn’t it better to wait until the sadness I heal?
No, pray now
He will show how
When we know not what to pray for as we ought
The Spirit guides and puts it inside our heart.
How to pray
Throughout the day
Without ceasing, as the Word demands it.
Rejoice at all times; how, when my spirit
Will it last?
No, have hope, have hope inside
Then go to His throne and abide
If only I believe
He will relieve
The sadness inside my soul
Before it swallows me whole.
Into Him I press
His name I bless
The Lord gives and He takes away, by and by;
Blessed be the name of the Lord on High!
Likewise, the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. (Romans 8:26)
Pray without ceasing. (First Thessalonians 5:17)
Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of Thy countenance. In Thy name shall they rejoice all the day: and in Thy righteousness, shall they be exalted. For Thou art the glory of their strength… (Psalm 89:15-17)
“Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD!” (Job 1:21)
