Where are you Seated?

Anyone remember the day of their salvation? For a moment I just want you to dive into that memory and let it flow through your mind and heart. Or what about the many times you desperately called out to Him and you immediately felt His presence overtake your anxious heart? Bath in that memory and soak it up.  Did you feel worse off than before the moment of your salvation?  Did you feel empty and still lost after He drew you near?  Ephesians 2:6 says “God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realm.” Wow, really? Maybe that is the reason we get this “high” when we first meet our Savior cause we are raised up, set high with Him in the heavenly realm.

The Word of God says He raises us up with Him.  It also states He put His seal of ownership on us! 2 Corinthians 1:21-23 “Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.” I don’t know about you but that scripture gives me a reason to shout the victory over anything in my life…I AM Christs! I am a princess because my daddy is the King of Kings 🙂 And not only that, get this: He put His spirit in our hearts as a deposit! When you make a deposit you usually either use that deposit to purchase something or you go back to get it! So if you allow Him He can use you for His purpose and will be coming back for you 🙂

I don’t know what you are going through.  You might be surrounded by all sorts of pessimism.  The darkness of this world, the distortions of our flesh, and the schemes of the evil one combine to create illusions of despair.  Resist them all.  You may not fathom the implications of being raised up with Him or even comprehend His ownership on your life but you can know this : Being raised with Him is an amazing place to be and you are united with the ultimate authority in ALL the universe!
