Dread Champion

The writers of the Bible gave us some lovely images of God, don't you think? And then there is this one. It has stuck with me all day in a somehow humorous yet comforting kind of way.
"But the LORD is with me like a dread champion." Jeremiah 20 somewhere

So I immediately get a mental image of a huge boxer, standing behind me complete with mouth-guard, sweat and red leather boxing gloves. Not exactly the image of God we usually hear, but comforting all the same don't you think?
