Biblical Poetry
Biblically oriented poetry that is intended to encourage, build faith and draw believers into more of a love for God's Word.
This poem expresses the snares the enemy of our souls tries to trip us in and keep us from walking in the light of God's countenance and how we can avoid them.

Snares of the Enemy
By Ken L. Birks


Hearing the joyful sound coming forth from His Spirit, we delight.

In the light of His countenance, we walk in His might.

Lifted above the circumstances of life, we rejoice.

No longer weighed down by worldly concerns, we give praise with voice.

With our hearts set upon that which is His, we treasure His abundance.


With all that has been given, the enemy comes to steal.

Setting traps, he beguiles and snares as thoughts swirl.

With worthless things, he entices and distracts from what is valued.

He comes to destroy and drag us down into the pits of depression.

Falling deep into self-pity, we’re caught, snared in transgression.


In desperation we cry out for help to be rescued as none seem to care.

As some turn against us, in misery we sink deeper into despair.

Overwhelmed by the snares set secretly, we cry out to be rescued

Trapped in the web of despondency, we’re set free to be delivered.

He brings us out of this prison of bondage that we may yet praise Him.


With a Word fitly spoken, He rescues with words of encouragement.

Though the enemy may set his traps, we trust in God and His precepts.

Watching over our paths, He knows the ways that must be kept.

The testimonies of those who have gone before us are our heritage.

With countenances now lifted, our hearts rejoice in truth now mastered.


Inclining our hearts to walk according to His Word forever, we proclaim.

To the end we follow hard after Him who faithfully rescues from regret.

To Him who brought us out of bondage, we give thanksgiving and praise.

He will continually bless the ways we take, guiding us around traps set.

With the joyful sound coming from His Spirit, our countenance delights.



Scripture references: Psalm 89:15, John 10:10, 119:110-112, 140:5, 142:3-7

By Kenneth L. Birks

The goal of this book is to give you, as a Christian, a glimpse into the path God has purposed for your life and to help you seize your destiny and purpose. In doing so, you will be able to live the role created for you. Whether you are just starting out on your journey, anywhere in the middle, or have become detoured and lost your way, this practical guidebook will help shine the light on the invisible path that not only leads to God’s goodness and experiencing His kingdom within, but also to the greatest adventure of your life.
