It will be a sign and witness to the Lord Almighty in the land of Egypt. When they cry out to the Lord because of their oppression, He will send them a savior and defender, and He will rescue them.” Isaiah 19:20
Comic book heroes have been around for decades. Then came the TV shows of warriors against evil such as Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, and Batman. Now there are also several movies depicting these champions – Superman, Captain America, Spiderman, etc.
Of course, none of these people are real. They were created out of someone’s imagination to give us hope that just maybe there could really be somebody with super powers who could save civilization from evil. Be honest, how many of us didn’t dream of being able to fly, stop speeding bullets, or drive the Batmobile. It’s all make-believe. These characters give us brief moments of relief from what is real.
Fantasies are fun for a time but then we’re hit again with reality. Is this all we have to get us through life? NO! There is a champion who is genuine, who is fighting battles right by our side – the Lord Almighty, Jesus Christ.
Even though we continue to struggle against the evil in our world, Jesus has already won the war. Satan has been defeated. He just hasn’t realized and accepted that fact yet. Therefore, we still are fighting battles with evil forces, but we are not in combat alone. Our champion, Jesus Christ, defends us every step of the way. He is our true rescuer. Whenever we call on His name He leads a powerful army into battle against the armies of Satan. Just like the heroes of our imagination who are always victorious, Jesus Christ in reality is victorious.
Seeing fake heroes defeat the bad guys is fun to watch, but they are not going to save us. Jesus is the real deal. All our faith and trust can be put in Him. In return He is faithful to us. He will never stop defending and rescuing us until the day He returns. At that time Satan, along with his armies, will be destroyed forever.
Do you wish you had a champion fighting for you? You do, if you have accepted Jesus into your life as your Lord and Savior. What are you waiting for? If you are ready to have a true Champion fighting by your side please pray the prayer below.
Dear Giver and Defender of life, I need a champion. I can’t fight these battles alone. Lord Jesus, please enter my heart and soul as my Savior. Help me to depend on You to rescue me. In Your precious name, Amen.
