Today’s Promise

I Am Seated With Christ

Ephesians 2:5-6

Even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.


It may be a little hard to wrap your mind around, but right now, you are seated with Christ in heaven.

Your physical location may be here on earth, but your spiritual position is with Christ.

When you placed your faith in Christ, you were united with Him. When He died, you died. When He was raised to life, you were raised to new life. Now He is seated at the right hand of God.  Because of your union with Him, so are you.

So what does that mean for you today?

Because you are seated with Him, your primary world is not here, but heaven. You live in the accomplished work of Christ.

When Jesus rose from the grave, He conquered Satan and the kingdom of darkness. Because of His victory, you live in victory over the powers of darkness that come against you. Satan has no power over you today.

Since you are seated with Christ, you live in His presence every moment of the day. You don’t have to go into His presence; you are already there. You are in Christ, and He is in you.

Because you are seated with Christ in heavenly places, you already have a place in heaven. You understand that this world really isn’t your home. Your focus is on the spiritual world, not on the physical world around you.

All this is because of the incredible grace of God working in your life.

Look at that promise again.

Even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. – Ephesians 2:5-6

Confess this with me.

I am seated with Christ in heaven.
I walk in this world, but my position is in heaven.
I live in His presence, with victory and authority in Christ.
God’s grace is working in my life.

In Jesus Name,
Amen
