My son ran into the living room late one night, scared that there was a monster in his room. He was only two and my first thought was to comfort him by telling him, ‘there were no such things as monsters’. However, we know that is not true. There are dark forces all around us, unseen in the spiritual realm.
“There might be a monster in your room,” I replied peacefully, looking into his worried eyes, ‘But let me tell you what God says about you.”
I then gave him a sword to take back to his room.
“God has not given you a spirit of fear but power, love and a sound (which I changed to ‘peaceful’ so he’d understand) mind”
2 Timothy 1:7
“God has given you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
“He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.”
1 John 4:4
The sword I gave to him was the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. (Ephesians 6:17) And with that sword, we walked back to his room, and he told the monsters to go in Jesus’ name. Then he got back into bed and slept soundly.
I think about the raging war of the enemy that seeks to corrupt the innocence and beauty of our children’s lives. I’m concerned a world that doesn’t know their Creator and his goodness will shape their identity. However, I know we do not need to fear, for we are not unarmed. The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty and the word of the Lord is Living and Powerful, sharper than any two-edged sword.
