Reflection

Christ has defeated death. He reigns supreme at His Father’s right hand. No one and no thing can harm Him in any way. This is the same Christ who has obtained eternal redemption for His people, and He grants them protection that can only come from an omnipotent being.

Do you have any enemies? How about the enemies of the world, the flesh, and the devil? Is there not a day that we battle with at least one of these, if not all three? And such powerful foes, too! Yet Christ, in redeeming us, overcomes our enemies. The world does not gain the upper hand; the flesh is put to death. Victory is unknown to the devil.

With absolute power and unwavering wisdom, our enemies are vanquished by Christ. We can obey Him without fear, for despite the seeming strength and might of those who wish to destroy us, they are no threat to our Savior. Rest in the shelter of His safety.

The LORD is my light and my salvation;

whom shall I fear?
