Demo Day

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

“Strongholds prevent you from hearing the voice of God.
Combat strongholds by destroying them with divine weapons.
...The Word can destroy strongholds!”
*Priscilla Shirer
 
“The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world.
On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.
We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up
against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought
to make it obedient to Christ.”
2 Corinthians 10:4-5 NIV
 
It’s Demo Day! It’s time for God
To tear down our defenses,
To take down walls and barriers,
Exposing our pretenses.
 
Those strongholds we ourselves have built –
Inadequacy, doubt,
Or fear, or shame, low self-esteem…
It’s time to take those out.
 
We have been given weapons to
Demolish every foe
That comes between our God and us.
It’s time for them to go.
 
The Word of God, our trusty Sword,
Is mighty to pull down
Those walls we’ve built so carefully
On shallow, shifting ground.
 
And when those walls come crashing down
God’s voice will then be heard -
Not muffled by some barrier,
But strengthened by His Word.
