You know what the expression “toothless bulldog” means, right? A toothless bulldog can bark, look fierce and intimidating, but cannot bite because, well, it has no teeth.
This came to mind as I read Colossians 2:15. It talks about what Jesus’ death and resurrection meant for the devil and his cohorts. “In this way, he disarmed the spiritual rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by his victory over them on the cross.”
By going to the cross, Jesus did not only restore our relationship with God; He totally defeated and stripped the devil and his demons of their power.
The devil is very much aware of that but still continues to bark and snarl at us, terrify, and intimidate us. That, he will continue to do till the end of time. The good news is that no matter how hard he tries, he cannot bite because he is toothless!
The Bible makes it clear that he will fashion weapons against us, but those weapons will not stand. All we need to do is to resist him through the word, prayer, and a godly lifestyle! It doesn’t matter how close he comes, how menacing he looks, how loud he barks, remember that he cannot bite.
Stand firm against his devises; you’re already victorious.
