SEATED IN CHRIST

“Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus” Ephesians 2:5-6 KJV

When you read the phrase “seated in Christ”, what comes to mind? Do you picture Jesus Christ seated on a gold-plated throne with you seated beside him? If yes, today’s devotional will help you understand the phrase better.

The word  “seated” is a figurative expression of authority. In other contexts, it is also referred to as sitting on the right hand. This does not mean the literal right hand side, but a figurative expression of authority.

 In Psalms 110:1, David uses this expression to depict the authority over the enemy. This expression is replete in the new testament in reference to the position of the believer in Christ (Ephesians 1:19-22, 2:5-6, Colossians 3:1). 

The believer is seated in Christ today, far above principalities, power and the works of the enemy. So, everything that answers to God now answers to the man in Christ. Glory to God!

God has given us authority over the devil and his works (Mark 16:17-18, Luke 10:19). The devil is under our feet. He is defeated and his place is under our feet. This is the reality of the believer, and we must exercise our authority in Christ in all areas of our lives. 

Stand on this consciousness, rebuke the devil and watch him flee (James 4:7, 1 Peter 5:8-9). Holding on to this consciousness is key because it is possible for one to have power without being aware of it and, hence, cannot take advantage of it.

 Therefore, it is important to note that the key to walking in authority is a deep-seated revelation of who God is and who He has made you to be in  Christ Jesus. This is why Paul prayed that the eyes of believers be enlightened to this truth (Ephesians 1:16-19). 

More so, we must realize that we live in a fallen world. The devil is the god of this world, and evil is prone to happen. However, we can be sure to reign in life because we are seated in Christ.

 No enchantment, divination or works of the enemy can have any effect in our lives. You can resist the devil and he will flee (James 4:7). You don’t have to be sick, or be depressed or be held bound by the enemy. You have the victory over the devil! 

Spend time today meditating on the Word of God and feeding your spirit with what has become yours in Christ Jesus and take steps in that consciousness today and always.
