You nor I are victims. Satan has been defeated and is a snivelling, permission-dependent pawn under God’s sovereign control.
As citizens of the eternal heavenly kingdom, remember that in this earthly kingdom we are sojourners and exiles, awaiting our King’s return and the final consummation of the kingdom.
God has established rules of order to creation, and He orchestrates all things according to His sovereign will… including the ordinary providence of fleeing to Egypt to avoid the vengeful wrath of an angry king.
Let us rejoice every Lord’s Day exceedingly with great joy, bowing down in reverent worship, offering gifts in tangible worship, heeding God’s Word in living worship.
If you are in Christ, then God has sovereignly fulfilled your salvation, a fulfillment foreordained before the foundation of the world, a fulfillment promised in the Garden of Eden, a fulfillment declared by the prophets.
As Scripture confirms: A promise made. A promise tried. A promise kept. He is our Promise Keeper, Christ Jesus the King!
