Little Red Riding Hood is attacked by a wolf. Dorothy must face and bring down the Wicked Witch of the West. Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi go hand to hand against Darth Maul. Saint George slays the dragon. The children who stumbled into Narnia, are called upon by Aslan to battle the White Witch and her armies, so that Narnia might be free.
Every story has a villain, yours does too. You were born into a world at war. One day, we are told, Satan will lose the battle against Michael and his angels, “he will be hurled to the earth, and his angels with him” (Revelation 12:9), barred from free access to the heavens.. But meanwhile, right now, on this earth, there are hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of fallen angels, foul spirits, bent on our destruction. And Satan’s mood? He is filled with fury, seeking those he may devour (1 Peter 5:8). Yes, he roves back and forth across the earth (Job 1:7), and comes not but to kill, steal and destroy (John 10:10).
But, although we have an enemy, and are at war, there is a Savior. JESUS CHRIST our LORD Greater is HE … than he who is in the world (I John 4:4).
In YOU O LORD, I put my trust; let me never be ashamed; deliver me in YOUR righteousness…Deliver me speedily; be my rock of refuge, a fortress of defense to save me (Psalm 31:1-2).
Looking unto JESUS, the Author and Perfecter of my faith.
