What Is That I See?

What is that I see?

It moves in the darkness close to me.

It moves slowly, deliberately, and secretly.

It moves like a lion stalking me.

What is that I see?

 

What is that I see?

Twisting and turning, it watches me.

Sneaking and spying, it studies me.

Thinks and planning, it evaluates me.

What is that I see?

 

What is that I see?

Like a lion, seeking to devour me.

Like a thief, seeking to steal from me.

Like a killer, seeking to murder me.

I recognize it.  It is the enemy.

 

It is that old serpent.

It is the father of lies.

It is the accuser of the brethren.

It is the leader of spies.

 

But great is the Lord that watches me.

Great is the Lord that shepherds me.

Great is the Lord that strengthens me.

Great is the Lord that gives victory.

 

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil as a roaring lion,

walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.”

1 Peter 5:8-9

“Praise God according to his excellent greatness”.

Psalm 150:2
