The Closer You Get To God - Poem by Luke Easter

The closer you get to God,
All the more Satan is in your face,
He doesn’t want you happy in heaven,
But miserable and tormented in his place.

The devil is still trying to show,
That only his way is correct,
Wanting you and me to believe,
God has forsaken us through neglect.

This is why many sinners seem to have it all,
Money, fast cars & a horse or two in the stall,
Trying to stop you from answering God’s call,
Remember all that happened to Apostle Paul?

Faith does not make your situation any easier,
It makes getting out of it become more intense,
Satan will actually create greater resistance,
As you get closer to the kingdom side of the fence.

As long as Lucifer has you clutched in his hand,
The faith of Jesus you’re not trying to understand,
As soon as the word of God you start to seek,
That’s when the devil jumps in making you weak.

Attacking your situation with negative words,
From the bible do not believe what you’ve heard,
If God is real what the heck is taking Him so long?
More than ever you have to be stronger than strong.

Kill the dream, steal the hope and destroy the faith,
The thief cometh more the closer the breakthrough date,
Not everyone gets his or her prayers answered fast,
Psalm 37: 5, 'trust in the Lord, He will bring it to pass.'

God’s word has authority, ability, weight and power,
Only milk that’s left out will begin to curdle then sour,
Meditate on the promises of our Lord every waking hour,
Let recited scriptures rain down like a heavenly shower.

Satan knows he’s about to lose a potential victim and friend,
Have faith reading of the Gospel wash you and cleanse,
The battle of good & evil has already been fought and won,
With the Crucifixion and Resurrection of the only begotten 1.
