Bambi vs. Godzilla was hardly a fair fight. Haven’t seen it? Here’s the link: https://youtu.be/8s3UogfAGg0 Go ahead and check it out; we’ll see you soon…
There would be no betting on Bambi vs. Godzilla because the outcome would be absolutely certain. Same thing if you spot a spider in your bathtub. Stomp, splat, the end. Cool way to start a devotional blog, eh?
But there’s a point coming. Keep the certainty of those outcomes in mind the next time you find yourself struggling with the devil. Temptation seems so strong but, when you put your whole trust in Jesus, He promises to come and make His home within you.
Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. (John 14:23)
When you remember He is there and turn Him loose, it’s not a fair fight.
1 John 4:4
Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.
I heard a guy say, “Whenever Satan knocks on my door, I say, ‘Jesus, it’s for you…'” That’s good advice, but the outcome is hardly fair.
