Bugs Bunny is one of my old-time favorites. As a child, and an adult, he’s given me many a good hard laugh. He comes to mind from an old episode (Rabbit Punches) where he enters the boxing ring vs. a formidable opponent; “The Crusher.”
Well, just look at him; he’s really not a very promising stand-in for Rocky. Yet, he’s all over “The Crusher” with the formidable force of his thoughts. He out-wits, out-thinks and flat-out lays out the opponent several times over. He simply won’t quit but neither will the opponent. The big guy just keeps coming back for more rounds. The cartoon never does end with a knock-out by Bugs. The hits keep coming but so do the laughs. I must admit when I watched it again, I was disappointed that Bugs didn’t lay him out in the end. You know, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, YOU’RE OUT!
Do you ever feel like your Bugs Bunny vs. The Crusher? I felt like that recently while dealing with a formidable opponent named FEAR. The Bible sure does hit the nail on the head when it says fear involves torment (1 John 4:18). Then a timely post from one of my favorite authors, Anne Voscamp, popped up on Facebook that read: “Sometimes you just want someone to come in and punch fear right in the face.” YEAH! Hit em’ hard! That’s what I say! Give em’ the ol’ 1-2 punch, Lord! The best part is that although the opponent keeps taunting the fans of the Winner, HE is still the Winner. We can get behind Him for protection knowing HE will fight for us. There won’t be a disappointed ending to this main event. It was a knock- out in the first round and in the end he’s going down.
The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. Rev. 20:10 (NKJV)
