In his neck abides strength, and terror dances before him. The folds of his flesh stick together, firmly cast on him and immovable.
Job 41:22–23
We often find ourselves in situations in which we see no way out. We are trapped between a rock and a hard place as the saying goes. So what do we do when we come up against a seemingly immovable force? The description of the leviathan paints a picture of such an immovable object. One so strong that no human could change its course or cause it to deviate from its path. We face countless leviathans in our lives. Though they may differ from person to person and from situation to situation the feeling is the same, overwhelming and utter helplessness. We can do nothing. But thanks be to God that when we do face those leviathans in our lives we are not on our own. We have Jesus with us. And in Him, we are never helpless. There is always hope. For Christ defeated those seemingly undefeatable and immovable enemies of sin, death, and the devil for us. And He did it not with massive armies and deadly weapons, but with His own “precious blood and with His innocent suffering and death” on the cross. So we need never doubt or fear the leviathan for Christ has conquered them all for us. Therefore, we cling to His cross which truly is immovable.
