Writer’s Poem: Rak Chazak Amats

Who told you to put your sword down, and lower your shield?
You were commanded to put on the full armor of God; to the enemy, do not yield.
Who is the uncircumcised Philistine that would defy the people of God?
The enemy has no authority over us; the claim of his mighty power is a facade.
Did The Lord, our God not say, ‘resist the devil, and he will flee from you?’
He has said ‘satan’s under your feet.’ Do you not believe it’s true?
How then, did he end up on your shoulders to whisper lies in your ear?
The devil has been a liar from the beginning, and he’s the original author of fear.
Rak—Chazak!
Only, stand your ground, and don’t—stand down.
Chazak—Amats!
Be strong—be courageous; fearlessness is contagious.
For, victory is not afar!
Did you somehow forget Whose you are?
Where on earth is your war cry?
Declare that you will live, and not die!
Rak Chazak!
Do not be dismayed, and do not be afraid!
Chazak Amats!
Stand firm and do not waver; The Lord is our Savior.
Hold steadfast to what is true.
Trust and believe in Him Who shields you.
Rak!
Be zealous and cry out loud with a mighty sound!
Chazak!
Be relentless and unmovable—firm on solid ground!
Amats!
Be fearless and don’t ever back down!
This is our war cry!
Be strong and of good courage—for victories abound!
God is with us!
And, I shall declare it over and over again…
Rak Chazak Amats!!!
Our God is—Alpha and Omega!
The beginning, and
—’The End.’ “

  1. Love this so much!! “Just happened” to come across your page. I read your poem this morning at our Shabbat service. It blessed us all in a mighty way!! I will be sharing it on our Rak Chazak Amats Facebook page.

    “May YHVH bless you and keep you;
    may YHVH make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you;
    may YHVH lift up his face upon you and give you peace.”
    ‭‭Numbers‬ ‭6:24-26‬ ‭

    “Be strong and courageous.”
