I’m Not Slippin’ and Slidin’ No More!


Many years ago when I worked for Joyce Meyer Ministries, I heard her give a teaching in which she made a statement that really resonated with me. She talked about how she was through with the past and she was moving on with God. She said, “I’m not slippin’ and slidin’ no more!” I was in a hard place at that time and it really spoke to me about my need to take my stand against the plan of the evil one. I wrote down the thought so I could remember it. When I got home I put it up in my office and as I looked at it, I thought of what she said and these word came to mind:

I’m Not Slippin’ and Slidin’ No More!

I was steeped in sin and all the wrong thoughts

But God brought me out and His Word to me taught.

I’m not slippin’ and slidin’ no more!

When satan tries hard to pull me down

I stand back up and adjust my crown.

I’m not slippin’ and slidin’ no more!

The path may be rocky and winding around,

But I can now stand on His Holy Ground.

I’m not slippin’ and slidin’ no more!

As I walk with the Lord and read in His Word,

I am grounded and steadfast and given reward.

I’m not slippin’ and slidin’ no more!

God holds me up every single day,

He listens intently whenever I pray.

I’m not slippin’ and slidin’ no more!

So satan you have no hold on me,

I can now tell your legions of demons to flee!

Because, I’m not slippin’ and slidin’ no more!

Praise God! I’m not slippin’ and slidin’ no more!
