Here David ascends the throne (finally!) and has victory over all his enemies and finds rest and peace after a life full on conflict so far. Jesus, as our new David has likewise won the spiritual battle for us that brings us peace. But there is still work to be done. Trusting, Fighting with Prayer, Love and Truth, and Waiting upon the Lord is our daily portion now! There are two types of people in this life, those who are focused on the heavenly Kingdom (and working daily toward that) and those that are fixated on this life. Let us labor daily for the heavenly kingdom.
After WW2 there was a clear sense that good had triumphed over evil, but there were a lot of complicated operations still to be carried out, and a lot of healing, and complicated relationships to be sorted out...our victory was won when Christ died and rose again, but the final victory is yet to come. And we have His work to continue on earth till He returns again. Let us Trust, Keep Fighting with Prayer, Love, and Truth, and wait patiently for the final salvation that is to come...when you die or when He returns, whatever comes first, you will see Him face to face, and in an instant you will be transformed to be like Him...The enemies that Christ has given us victory over are the World (of evil), The Flesh (indwelling sin), and the Devil, but we have to work out that victory daily, right? We must stand against unrighteousness and injustice, woo the enemy to Christ, and win the battle on the inside, which is perhaps the greatest battle...and this is only won by filling your life daily with Christ the Victor...then there is no room left for sin and selfishness.
In Prayer Today:
Praise King Jesus on His throne!
