(GPS) Grotesque Passenger Satan

Obedience is not
An occasional event
It should be
The driving force in our life

And believer’s too struggle
With this task
Often taking a turn
That’s not… right

Just like Paul…
What I “will to do”
Is NOT the thing
That I do

And more of what
I “will NOT to do”
Is the thing that
I allow to come true

Because the flesh is weak
Our sinful nature yields
To Satan
Letting him take control

Of our character
Our conduct
Our conversations and contemplations
Lord, this is really getting old!

Please bind
The “Accuser of the Brethren”
From my thoughts
Get this (GPS) out of my car

Because he collides with my mind
Especially when I drive
To any distance
Near or far

A Back Seat Driver
Taunting me
With directions

For the
Next hairpin turn
He thinks
I should take

And I know all too well
If I exit now
It will be yet another

Because the roads Satan travels
Are treacherous
He’ll take you on a
Sinful decline

And you won’t have what it takes
When he won’t let you break
To stop his barrage
On your mind

So we must yield the right of way
To The Lord
Let Him ride in the
Passenger Seat

And we’ll be equipped
For every trip with
The Power of the
Holy Spirit’s fleet

Yes only Jesus can unplug
This controlling (GPS)
The “mayhem” that tries to
Steer me off course

So let me hear
The tires squeal
Jesus please
Take the wheel

Hit the breaks!
Throw this (GPS)
Out of my car!

  1. This brings to mind a movie in the 40`s `God Is My Co-Pilot.` He always is….I just don`t turn the steering wheel over to Him the way I should.
