In putting everything under him, God left nothing that is not subject to him Yet at present we do not see everything subject to him. But we do see Jesus, who was made lower than the angels for a little while, now crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone. Hebrews 2:8-9 NIV
I see what you did here. I see what you did when you sent Jesus to live, to die, to rise and toe rule. You put everything under his feet. There is not one thing in this world that is not subjected to him. And yet that is not what I see. I see disorder and chaos. I see people growing old and frail so that they finally fail. I see divisions between peoples. I see wars and hear rumors of wars. In my own life too I see and I feel the same. Things sometimes seem to be chaotic in my own life. My own heart too is a big mess. Though you rule there, another force seems to often be at work. It wages war against what I know to be good and true. I see and feel all this in my heart and life. I see this, but I also see you, dear Jesus. I see you and you tasted death for me and for everyone. You suffered defeat in death’s cold grip, but then you shoved death down again and put it under your feet. You rose triumphant, O Jesus, and you brought great victory to me and to all who believe in you. Help me to see you clearly dear Jesus. Help me to see you and your victory. Help me to see that you are reigning even when I see disorder and chaos. Help me to trust that in the disorder and the chaos you are working good and are ruling it for me. Bring me peace and rest because of your mighty rule. I see you, Jesus!
Seeing Jesus and his victory helps us see life from a whole new perspective.
