My friend Maria is visiting me this week. We’ve been watching the Narnia movies because we both love them and it’s been far too long since we saw them.
Last night we watched Prince Caspian. There’s one particular scene that I’ve always found quite powerful.
As the Telmarine army flees from the Narnians, they come to a river and a bridge. At the other end of the bridge, Lucy, a young girl, walks out and confidently draws her tiny dagger as Aslan steps to her side.
It doesn’t seem like a difficult choice, and he spurs his horse forward. But this lion isn’t just a lion; he is the creator, and it takes little effort for him to defeat the Telmarine army.
It’s a lovely illustration. In the eyes of the world, one person can seem quite insignificant and not at all a threat. But if that person has God on their side, they have a lot more power than any army they might be facing.
For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. – 1 Corinthians 1:25
