Struggling against your greatest foe? We can be set free from being defeated. Read this simple poem about one of our strongest enemies, but there is hope…
Struggling and fighting the toughest foe I’ve got,
Wrestling, pushing, kicking, despite these I would stand
It’s so persistent, chasing me, lo! no matter what I do
Nowhere else to hide, nowhere else to go.
I tried to hide in my dream for that is my own place
It still follows there, my thoughts were invaded
I ran as fast as I could, no time for a rest
But it’s right there in the front, faster and ahead.
What shall I do I was tired and exhausted?
Who could help me out of my brokenness?
So I stopped and rest, finally asked God for help
Yes, His hand He extended and poured out His grace.
Now, my enemy couldn’t harm me for it is defeated
I know who I am thus I won’t be deceived
Accusations, condemnations, all have been deleted
My foe was my judgment of my very own self.

” Self-judgment clouds our mind with inescapable indictments.” – Balroop Singh
“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”
