We’ve been looking at 2 Corinthians 7:1, and seeing that once we have the promises of God, we don’t want anything that stains us. Here’s a devotional poem from Christ-follower Tim Adornetto seeing the same. It’s called “In My Soul I Feel.”

In my soul I feel
the hate of my enemy.
He’s prowling, teeth bared,
ready to devour me.
Masquerading as the light,
making every wrong seem alright,
he’s raking at my heart, and
staking a claim on my soul.

But Jesus, when I call your name,
the roaring lion’s reduced to crying,
his tail’s tucked, his reign is dying.
No, I need not fear him
when I am filled with you!

In my soul I feel
the weight of my sinfulness,
the pride of my rigidness,
but Lord, I still long
for your righteousness.
So I confess my sin to you, and
your love comes shining through;
your forgiveness transforms me.

Yes Jesus, when I call your name,
the roaring lion’s reduced to crying,
his tail’s tucked, his reign is dying.
No, I need not fear him
when I am filled with you!
