Stronghold and Redemption

Image

 

 

STRONGHOLD …

A negative pattern of THOUGHT,

Which is CAUGHT,

Will INVADE,

Therefore PREVADE,

A HOLD,

In my HEART.

 

TRUTH …

Is Christ in ME,

A renewed stream in THEE,

A redeemed MIND,

Renewed and KIND,

Set FREE,

And to BELIEVE.

 

REDEMPTION …

Is GOD The FATHER,

Father God,

Letting go of his BEGOTTEN SON,

A provision for our RECONCILIATION,

In and through the CROSS,

In and because of CHRIST.

 

CHRIST …

In US,

The sacred CHASE,

Will choose to FACE,

The throw of a BLOW,

The blow of a LIE,

To say a final GOOD-BYE.

 

GOOD-BYE …

Is bye to the LIE,

A destructive THOUGHT,

That was SOUGHT,

Briefly CAUGHT,

Therefore FOUGHT,

And gave a final SIGH.

 

EMBRACE …

Means choose the TRUTH,

Be His living PROOF,

Take every thought CAPTIVE,

Every captive THOUGHT,

To His Throne of GRACE,

Through His grace a safe PLACE.

 

2 Corinthians 10:3-6 (Holy Bible: English Standard Version) … “For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For our weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, being ready to punish every disobedience, when your obedience is complete.”

 

Colossians 1:13-20 (Holy Bible: English Standard Version) … “He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities-all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.”

 

Composed by Nancy Clone (Faris) Byrne as a modern day psalm, reflective prayer in the spring of 2009.
