David Jeremiah Daily Devotional March 11 2022 :
But now we do not yet see all things put under him. But we see Jesus.
Recommended Reading: Hebrews 10:11-23
God’s Kingdom advances in stages. When Jesus came the first time, He provided what is needed for His ultimate victory. He ushered in the first stage of His Kingdom—redemption for you and me. But things will not reach their ultimate and concluding stage until He returns. Hebrews 10:12-13 says, “But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God, from that time waiting till His enemies are made His footstool.”
His Kingdom is already here, but not yet in its ultimate form. One day every knee will bow, and every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord. One day all evil will be banished, all problems will be resolved, all prayers will be answered, and all things will be righted and righteous.
Until then, we walk by faith. We celebrate knowing we will ultimately experience victory in our spiritual warfare. It’s already won, and we can live in triumphant optimism today.
If there is anyone who ought to live with a positive confidence in this world, it is the child of God…. A very real joy, pleasure, and glory are coming, and they are wrapped up in the “blessed hope” of Jesus’ appearance.
Paul N. Benware.
