Things are not always as they seem.
May we all keep this in mind as we see, sometimes daily, what looks or feels like ‘victories over Christ’.
When we see the pain, the evil, and the seemingly successes of the enemy in this world, we can so easily slip into worry, fear, and thinking that darkness is winning.
Yet can you grasp how irrational that really is:
‘Victory’ over Jesus Christ?
the One to Whom all will someday bow?
the One with “all things in subjection under His feet” (Eph. 1:22)?
the One Who has been seated “far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come” (Eph 1:21)?
May we keep the big picture before us, find hope, and take courage.
“Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13

I love this! I especially love what you wrote fueled by Ephesians 1:21-22. So rich!!
Right? In light of even just those truths in Eph 1, the fact that we would spend so much time being fearful and worrying about ‘defeat’ in the world around us is “irrationally outrageous”. (I think that is originally how I had that ‘victory over Christ’ statement defined: an irrationally outrageous statement! I may have to go and put that back in :). So why do we? Because we live in vessels of clay, in fragile flesh. May we take those worries captive and move forward in His victory! Thanks for the comment, Lindsay. It was good for me to be pointed back to meditate on those statements.
