No Contest

I had been grappling with a problem that had dogged me for many a week
when the Lord gave me a vision that I didn’t even seek.

He showed me a spiritual tug of war, with Him and myself there on one side.
The devil and his demons were on the other, my faith to divide.

I don’t remember seeing others; but, to my mind, there could have been
friends who were also “pulling” on my side, through prayers that I would win.

In the vision, I had the calming realization that with Jesus holding the rope,
the devil and his cohorts would be defeated, completely unable to cope.

P. A. Oltrogge

“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.” 1 John 4:4
