Do you know that you are seated in Heavenly places with Jesus?
If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
Colossians 3:1-3 New King James Version
THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY’S VERSE…
Scripture says that if you believe in Jesus and have been baptized into His death that you are also raised up with Him and made to sit in heavenly places with Him (Eph 2:6). This is known as a positional truth because it is what God says about us. We need to see ourselves as God does in His positional truths. We should seek those things that are of heaven, those things which will last with us through all eternity. We should lay up treasures for ourselves in heaven, where they can not be destroyed or taken by thieves. We need to get our eyes off of ourselves and the things of this world, the things that distract us from heavenly things, and get them unto Jesus…the Author and the Finisher of our faith. Only He can change our circumstances.
Eternal Father, who was before creation and who is the Great “I AM”, help me to sow seeds in my life that will bear eternal fruit. Help me to see where You have raised me to be seated. Let Your Spirit guide and teach me to sow to the spirit and to avoid those things that are carnal and lead to death and destruction. Help me to keep my eyes on Jesus, my Author and my Finisher for I know that I can not accomplish anything on my own, but I need You and Your Holy Spirit to help and to guide me every step of the way. So Father, I ask You to fill me afresh each day with Your precious Holy Spirit, that indeed I may be endued with power from on High to accomplish that which I can not myself do for Your Kingdom. In Jesus’ mighty name, I pray.
