Stay in Your Seat
“Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places” Ephesians 1:20
Jesus is seated by the right hand of the Father and He doesn’t get up out of His seat. But we get up, just as a little kid has a hard time sitting still in church. They squirm, wiggle and always need to get a drink of water or go to the bathroom. Maturity is all about learning how to sit down, and stay seated in our seat, our place of authority, not distracted and pulled by our fleshly needs and the world around us.
Once you finally find your seat, your position or God’s purpose for your life, you need to stay seated in your seat. God’s power that worked in Christ and raised Him from the dead also raised Him into His final seat of authority. The power of God placed Jesus at His right hand in heavenly places. That same power is working in me to lift me up out of sin and to break behavior patterns that have been learned and embraced due to generational iniquities. As I overcome these sins and the pull of iniquity, I can feel myself getting lighter and lighter, until I am seated in heavenly places, high above my circumstances, high above principalities and powers of darkness.
“And He has raised us up together and made us sit together in Christ Jesus”. Ephesians 2:6
