He executes justice for the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free, the LORD gives sight to the blind, he lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves those who live justly. The LORD watches over the immigrant and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. -Psalm 146:7-9

Then Sings My Soul Saturdays- In The Words Of Satan




This Saturdays edition of Then Sings My Soul is different. I have been watching and thinking about this video for the past week. The Lord has used this song to stir up my prayer life. I have been dealing a lot with fear and anxiety lately. For my life, the life of my family, friends and neighbors. Just feeling real heavy. This song reminds me that I have an enemy that wants to keep me in bondage to some of the lies that I have believed, he doesn't want me to know that there is a God in heaven who loves me and cares for me and desires that I, His child experience freedom and forgiveness daily. I am learning how to rest in that. God cares, and all the days ordained for me and others are written in His book. So today, I remember that I don't wrestle with flesh and blood, but I also remember that God is powerful and He in the end will REIGN and already has the VICTORY over all our enemies.

May I introduce to you a group called The Arrows.




Lyrics:
I've been here since the beginning
Know exactly how you work
I know all of your cravings
Know what makes you go berserk
Been lying from the start just to make you play a party in my infinite rebellion against the Father God

Hate
Everything he is
And I make you hate him too
Make you hate him with your actions it's so easy for me to do
'Cause you like it...
Sin feels good for the ego...
You love it...
Oh, come on baby

And all the time, I'm winding you up
Like my perfect little puppet, you're my favorite robot, welcome to the show but I'm watching you and all of hell is with me too, helping me make my lies look true

Oh and there is a lie that works for everyone, everyone
A lie that opens your hearts so I can get me some more of your free will
I'm winding you
Winding you
Give me the control that's why I'm telling you
Selling you
Anything
Everything
Appealing to your human way of being and I use it all against you to just keep your eyes from seeing past the life you're living
Past the moment you're in
Past the pleasure of your sin

Or the cigarette you're smoking
Choking on your lust
I'll make you drunk with pride
So deeply spun into my system that you won't see the light
Never mind that I'm drowning you
I keep deceiving you...

'Cuz I don't tell you
That God in heaven
Who loves you
Who yearns for you
I don't tell you
That the freedom of forgiveness and truth
Why would I tell you?
Why would I tell you the truth?


But I'll say that millions of years ago an accident exploded
And you're the result of this cosmic unknown with no real purpose
Created for no real intent
The reason for your living is just coincidence
So all the remains is what you can gain
Whatever meaning you attach to your days you decide
Mmm, but I help you recognize important things in life
Introducing money, it's the root of all, evil they say so
I attach yourself worth to the salary you're paid, be a slave to your property
Your jewelry
Your cars and things
Advertise that lie up on the TV so you'll want that bling
Selling bit by bit the little pieces of your soul
Climbing up the ladder of economic control
Oh, the greed of man makes it so easy to pervert the Father's plan

Or I'll tell you...
There is a heaven but there's many ways to get in
Keep you so confused that you stay bound to your sin
Tell you there are many ways to the same God
Keep you distracted with your methods so your heart stays hard,
I'll make you think you've got spirituality, but it's really just emotional alchemy
Oh, the vanity of self-idoltary I never let you see that it breeds
Hedonism! Whoo!
And it's the answer of this generation
Come on, drink it, snort it, smoke it, swallow it
Chew on my illusion of freedom till you vomit it

And still I don't tell you
That God in heaven
Who loves you
Who yearns for you
I don't tell you
That the freedom of forgiveness and truth
Why would I tell you?
Why would I tell you the truth?
