I’m still thinking about what it means that Satan was hurled to earth.
He may be bigger than me, but he is a lot smaller than God when I think that God holds the waters in the hollow of His hand, Isaiah 40:12. That reminds me of the giants Joshua and Caleb faced, Numbers 13, and how they saw something of God’s greaterness the other Israelites missed. We know this because Caleb and Joshua were the only two of the generation that left Egypt who entered the Promised Land, Joshua.
Today, it seems there are giants that come against me. But, like Caleb and Joshua, I believe my God is greater. I wonder what He is doing and what happens next?
The photo is of a painting called St. George slays the dragon. I do not see that the Bible says we humans slay dragons, but that we overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony, Revelation 12:10-11.
