Seated With Him In The Heavenlies
which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.- Ephesians 1:20-21
Jesus did not come to the world to defeat the devil just to prove his superiority. He did it essentially on our behalf. His victory over principalities and power has been credited to out account as members of his body. By virtue of this, we can resist the devil and the devil has to obey because we are now operating beyond the Adamic level. Halleluyah, we have the power of the Elohim, we are seated with Christ in the heavenlies far above power and principalities.
Beloved, you can’t claim to know God based on your circumstance; you can only know Him by looking at Him and consistently following Him. If you saw Joseph in Potiphar’s house, it was as if God’s word is a lie. If you had looked at Joseph while in the prison yard, it was as if God is not fair, but seeing Joseph, however, becoming the prime Minister of Egypt justifies God’s wisdom in handling a life.
Your life is also like that. In your life, you will see constructions, momentary setback, hardship, but if you will care to walk with God, you will know that God is a good God. In the long run, you will have reasons to thank Him. Knowing that you will thank Him eventually, why not start thanking Him now? It is easy to thank God when you have a testimony and things are working right in your favour but we must celebrate always regardless of what our situations are, knowing that all will end well.
Behold, God has expectations and plans for your life which are great and glorious. There is no calamity or disaster in God’s expectation for you; so don’t expect trouble. Because man is a fallen race, he is negatively programmed. His ears are attuned to hearing bad things but thank God, we belong to a kingdom that is unique in all facets.
Prayer: Father, I receive grace to walk in all my redemptive rights and privileges in Christ in Jesus Name. Amen
