Your Word for This Day: “Living From Above”

Friday, August 4, 2017

“And raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:6

When was the last time you looked out on the world from a very high place? I am sure that you would agree with me that seeing things from a higher level is different from seeing things at a lower level. That is because the higher you go, the smaller and more insignificant the things on the ground level appear.

From an airplane’s view, the houses on the ground look tiny as compared to when you are on the ground.

So it is with life.  When you are on the level of the challenges they seem insurmountable and more than you can handle.  At times, they make you feel that you will never get through or even survive this season of your life.  But, could it be that it seems this way because you are looking at it from the ground level?

It’s time to change your position.  Look at it from above. 

How do you do that?  By looking at it through the word of God.  God’s word is the elevated position through which we must view life, no matter what stage of life you are in.

When you look at things from a high place, you will realize that it is indeed tiny and it will soon pass. Always remember, you are a conqueror through Christ and you can do all things through Him who gives you strength. Nothing can break you. This too will pass.
