"Give me the child. Through dangers untold and hardships unnumbered, I have fought my way here to the castle beyond the Goblin City to take back the child that you have stolen. For my will is as strong as yours, and my kingdom is as great... You have no power over me." - Sarah
For those of you who knew me growing up you know that my cousins and I are obsessed with this wonderful 80's movie that most people hate: The Labyrinth. To me this movie is incredible, fabulous characters, wonderful songs, great lines, lots of laughs. One central theme to the movie is this quote above. It plays in my head over and over again and has for years. In the end of the movie it's the moment when she realizes the Goblin King (david bowie thank you very much!!) has been trying to trick her this whole time into thinking getting her brother back was SO impossible, when really it wasn't and she was making it harder on herself because she believed the lies of the Goblin King. She gets caught up in a labyrinth in his castle and the moment she says this line again out loud, finishing the last few words: You have no power over me: the labyrinth disappears and her brother is there in front of her to save.
When I met the Lord this quote became even more important to me. It is our exact struggle with OUR Goblin King- Satan. For our world, our God IS as strong as Him, and even greater. Jesus has won the war, but we can't let Satan win our battles. Those stronghold he has on you, those lies he tells you over and over again... tell him THIS back into his face: YOU HAVE NO POWER OVER ME. He really would love us to think he does, but he doesn't, and never will.
