a transliterated Hebrew word (livyathan), meaning “twisted,” “coiled.” In Job 3:8, Revised Version, and marg. of Authorized Version, it denotes the dragon which, according to Eastern tradition, is an enemy of light; in 41:1 the crocodile is meant; in Ps. 104:26 it “denotes any large animal that moves by writhing or wriggling the body, the whale, the monsters of the deep.” This word is also used figuratively for a cruel enemy, as some think “the Egyptian host, crushed by the divine power, and cast on the shores of the Red Sea” (Ps. 74:14). As used in Isa. 27:1, “leviathan the piercing [R.V. ‘swift’] serpent, even leviathan that crooked [R.V. marg. ‘winding’] serpent,” the word may probably denote the two empires, the Assyrian and the Babylonian.
I don’t know about you, but I am constantly fighting the “Leviathan.”
He is my carnal, natural man.
The side of me that thinks I am smarter, stronger, faster and more just, then the living God. (The not ready for reality side of me).
I cannot conquer that part of me.
The only way to gain the victory is:
* To totally surender to the Lord Jesus as both Savior and Lord.
* To live a life of ready repentance, to accept resonsibilty for our actions, words and attitudes.
* To fill ourselves with the Word of God.
* To open ourselves to and be obedient to the Spirt of God.
* To learn to walk with Jesus
It is what the Lord desires of us. Why do we fail so consistantly?
If you know the secret to total surender, please share. That is where I wish to reside.
Thanks for visiting. Come back soon.
Know you are loved.
