WHEN THEY SET FORTH…

When they set forth to harm you

Or wish to take revenge,

God will turn it around for the good

Whilst you’re enclosed in His hedge.

When they set forth to harm God’s own

Without any cause at all,

There will come a time if they still persist

That they’ll encounter a great fall.

Because envy is a spider’s web;

It encapsulates the soul,

And traps it in its misery

That becomes a firm stronghold.

God cannot be mocked

And when the apple of His eye,

Is tampered with or tormented too

His wrath can’t be denied.

‘Vengeance is Mine’ says the Lord

As we leave it in His hands,

And although we’re tempted to take control

He works in ways we don’t understand.

When they set forth to harm you

They will fall in their own trap,

Because when wicked intentions brew in the heart

They come and fall in their own lap.

When they set forth to harm you

Just know that they’re doing the will,

Of the wicked and rebellious one

So his plan will be fulfilled.

When they set forth to harm you

You’ll have the support of those around,

Who will intercede and pray for you

So Satan’s tactics will be bound.

It is never in God’s heart

To plan evil things for us,

But instead to give us a future and a hope

When in Him we sincerely trust.

But the devil comes to kill and destroy

And to steal whatever he can,

Because he hates us with a perfect hatred

In ways we’ll never understand.

But God’s love does prevail

And when they set forth to harm us,

His loyalty and sincerity 

Keep us covered as we trust.

When they set forth to harm you

There’s no forgiveness in their heart,

But only the desire to ruin your reputation

And to tear your life apart.

They hated Christ without a cause;

He was the perfect one on earth,

But their jealousy and evil intents

Could not see His precious worth.

When they set forth to harm you

Just know that God is in control,

And that the plans of your enemies will be defeated

As God afflicts their mind and soul.
