Proverbs in 365 Devotions

Proverbs 11:9 With his mouth the godless man would destroy his neighbor, but by knowledge the righteous are delivered.

Long Slimy Sword

Robin Aylor

The tongue is a fire, a long slimy sword
It curses its neighbor and praises The Lord.

How can knowledge make this sword yield?
It can act as an armor, a buckler and shield.

It transforms to a weapon no one can defeat
With matrix reflexes of rapid repeat

The word of the Lord is the sword of the spirit
Dividing and piercing the souls that will hear it

What's in the stomach exits the bowels
Issues of the heart extrude from the mouth

Gods Word from within protrudes through the lips
Empowers the hands, the legs and the hips

Jesus had knowledge when tempted and tried
He deflected the promise of satan who lied

Thrusting out “ is written” “...worship the Lord…"
Delivered his oracles, a powerful sword

He became the example for you and for me
From His Word, Faith, Knowledge and Victory
