I Am Seated With Christ
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.
You Are Seated With Christ
You may not feel like it, but right now, you are seated in the heavenlies with Christ. This world, with all its worries, struggles, and fear no longer controls you.
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.
You Are United 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. Right now, you are seated with Christ in the Kingdom of God.
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 authority, claim, or power over you.
Since you are seated with Christ, you live in His presence every moment of the day. You don’t have to come into His presence; you are already in His presence. You are in Christ, and He is in you.
You Are Not of This World
Because you are seated with Christ in the heavenlies, 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.
You are definitely a stranger in this world. You are passing through this world on your way to your permanent place with Christ.
Because you are seated with Him, you have direct access to Christ.
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
Make these confessions after 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 today.
In Jesus Name,
