“But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:4-6
God’s great mercy abounds towards us. He is compassionate and exercises loving kindness. Because of His great love, today we have another opportunity to maximize the time that He has given us on this earth.
In Christ, we are forever positioned for success because we are seated with Him in heavenly places. From that vantage point, we can see wider, farther, and clearer—our view is unhindered. We can see that no obstacle is too big for us and we are motivated to trust God more. We begin to operate in the truth that nothing is impossible with God, and He is in total control of everything.
In Christ, you are victorious.
You have been raised up above everything that threatens to hold you down; you cannot be defeated. Today, embrace the truth of the word of the Lord. See yourself as you really are in Christ: a victor!
Look accurately at what’s happening around you and know that whatever challenge or issue you are facing now is not on to death, but it’s for the glory of God. Make no mistake about it, you are on the winning side, and victory is yours today! It’s your time to celebrate!
