Deliver Us From Evil
 

Evil will always test truth...
It has always been thus.
In the forty days of temptation
Evil tempted the Lord Jesus.
 
But He was led by The Spirit...
This is important to know
That God's view of temptation
Is to let righteousness show.
 
Yes, God allowed each temptation
And the tempter gave it his best...
For it was the sinless SON OF GOD
 The devil put to the test!
 
"IF you are really the Christ...
IF you are God's Chosen One...
 Let these stones be made bread!
Prove you truly are God's Son!
 
Cast yourself from this mountain...
For, of course, you have heard
That His Angels will catch you...
It all right here in God's Word!
 
O, can I offer you kingdoms?
 Come up hither and see!
All these riches I'll give you
If you will bow down to me!"
 
Does this scene seem familiar
Today in your life and mine?
Have we not faced each testing?
Heard the same quoted line?
 
If the devil gets us to doubt
We're children of the Most High...
That our needs are not met
And that hunger is nigh...
 
That an Angelic protection
Is just simply a whim...
 Believe our wealth and well being
Is not only through Him...
 
Then the devil has trapped us...
But, know, if this is a test...
Then God expects us to prove
That Truth's way is the best...
 
That we must work for our bread...
Not depend on handouts.
And that a true Child of God
Just will not harbor doubts
 
That the Angels protect us
And do serve us each day...
 That any wealth we acquire
Must be acquired in God's Way.

Yes, we're delivered from evil...
It's just a matter of trust
In the Lord and His Word
And in His promise to us.

~~Dedicated to Billy and Beth~~

~~Author's Note~~ 
I'd like to note something the Bishop of my
church pointed out in his sermon Deliver US
From Evil (which was excellent)....he said US
crossed his mind as United States, also. This
is almost prophetic in it's meaning. The United
States definately needs to be delivered from
evil....the evil of calling evil good and good evil
...the slaying of the unborn, the re-defininition
of marriage and every other evil the government
 has allowed and supported in our country.
May God have mercy on the US and grant us
a better form of government. It's important for
Christians to vote in this coming  election.
 

 
Matthew 6:13
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
 
1 Corinthians 10:13
 No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man.
 God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond
 your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide
the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
 
Psalms 26:2
Prove me, O LORD, and try me; test my heart and my mind
 
Matthew 4:7
Jesus said to him, “Again it is written, ‘You shall not
put the Lord your God to the test
