“When He (Jesus) had disarmed the rulers and authorities, He made a public display of them, having TRIUMPHED over them through Him.”
Do you ever feel like things are out of control? Does it seem like politicians and people in authority ignore your voice? Does it seem like we live in a world where truth is ignored and people are deceived? Christ can relate. He was pronounced “not guilty,” then crucified. But that wasn’t the end of the story. Christ TRIUMPHED over the grave, rulers, and authorities. He disarmed them and made a public display of them. The good news is – Christ is still on the throne. Wrongs will be righted one day. Deceptions will be revealed. Right and truth will prevail. The Triumphant Lord is also able to triumphant over strongholds in our lives, despair in our heart, and sin that entangles us. Psalm 46:10 reminds us, “Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Christ is the triumphant Lord. Look to Him. Call on Him.
Lord, You are TRIUMPHANT over death, rulers and authorities. You are triumphant over powers and sin. We ask for Your help to stand against evil and to live godly, holy lives.
