Reports the Denver Post:

A sheep ranchers in the West, Lexy Lowler has tried just about everything to stop crafty coyotes from killing her sheep. She has used odor sprays, electric fences, and "scare-coyotes."

She has slept with her lambs during the summer and has placed battery-operated radios near them. She has corralled them at night, herded them at day. But the southern Montana rancher has lost scores of lambs--fifty last year alone.

Then she discovered the llama--the aggressive, funny-looking, afraid-of-nothing llama.... "Llamas don't appear to be afraid of anything," she said. "When they see something, they put their head up and walk straight toward it. That is aggressive behavior as far as the coyote is concerned, and they won't have anything to do with that.... Coyotes are opportunists, and llamas take that opportunity away."

We need to stand in Christ, fearless against Satan, he is an opportunist but we must stand against his having an opportunity. Just because Eve yield to temptation in the past, doesnt mean she has to yield to him in the future!
