Roman soldiers were the most feared warriors on the face of the earth, bringing terror to their opponents and wary respect from all they encountered.

The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.
                                                      --Matthew 28:4 TNIV

Roman guards were ordered by Pilate to secure the tomb of the crucified Jesus. But then the earth shook, and an angel of God arrived on scene. Who's scared now? The Roman soldiers were scared to death, if you will. But it was several women, shaking themselves, but who heard the words of encouragement and instruction from the angel, and they ran to tell the others the good news of the risen Christ.

So much for Roman might. God has a way of turning things around. Maybe you need something "turned around" today. Don't fear Roman might, but worship the Lord.
