God Chose You Before The Foundation Of The World!!!
Paul was a special messenger, a true apostle of Christ Jesus, chosen by the Divine will of God. He laboured for the Kingdom of God and was on the cutting edge of what the Lord was doing. His goal was to further the Kingdom of God. He was an exhorter and encourager who wrote to the church at Ephesus, to those who were SET-APART, FAITHFUL AND STEADFAST in the work of the Lord. Yet, they needed to be reminded of who they were in Christ. It is with the heart of the Father that you are reminded today that you are blessed with every spiritual blessing in Christ and that you are seated in heavenly places. As Paul reminded the church in his day of these things and we too need to be reminded of who we are in Christ.
Let the Lord stir your heart today! Let His Spirit arise in you and encourage yourself to continue in the race set before you. Keep running at a steady pace and do not slow down except for time of refreshing in the Lord. The long distance runner only stops for his water (the Word of God) and then continues running the race until the finish line.
When you got up this morning did you say, “I am blessed with every spiritual blessing in Christ. This is a new day and I am seated in heavenly places”! Most do not get up with this in their heart and yet we need to be reminded that we are seated in heavenly places in Christ. We need to operate from this realm in the Spirit and not accept anything less in our walk with the Lord.
Circumstances are screaming right now and many are looking at them and crying out and not knowing where to turn. You need to pray for fresh vision today!!! YOU ARE SEATED IN HEAVENLY PLACES IN CHRIST!!! Glory!!! This should make your Spirit soar when you realized that you are called to soar like an eagle and not walk around like a turkey.
You were chosen before the foundation of the world. Yes, God had a plan that included you before the foundation of the world. He knew where you would be this day and knows all your thoughts and even the intents of your heart. How glorious!!! How wonderful!!! God knows right where you are today!
His plan for your life is perfect! He is wanting to reveal His plans and purposes to you. They are not all revealed at once but here a little there a little line upon line they will be revealed. For those of you who have raised children you remember that you could not put all of the blessings in front of them at once, but often you would say, Lord willing when you are a little bigger we will do this and that. God has given you EXCEEDING GREAT AND PRECIOUS PROMISES that by them you might be partaker of His Divine nature. You will not taste and eat all of those promises at once but little by little you will chew on them and digest them until they become fruit in your life. Those promises are for you!!! Praise God!!! Look at those promises today and see what God is speaking to you for this day. Take one and chew on it and you will taste and see that the Lord He is good and He is God. There is none other like Him!!!
His plans and purposes for your life are going to be revealed. Perhaps they have been revealed to you and you are fighting the battle of your life and feeling that you are giving in to discouragement. This is not is not the time to quit!!! It is the time to press in and go on and take all that He has for you. You are a part of this end time battle and He is equipping you for His purposes. Fit in with His plan and let Him equip you fully so that you are fully dressed within, in your battle array. We are in the end times and fighting a war that cannot be fought with conventional purposes but one that must be fought with the Divine strategies of the Word of God. He is our commander and chief and will show us that which we must do daily in following Him. Prepare beloved, prepare for that which the Lord has called you to do and remember that you are seated in heavenly places in Christ. You are called today to soar like an eagle. Come aside with Him and be refreshed with His refreshing! Let the Word of God give you renewed strength. But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. God has promised this to you and you must take hold of this promises and war, then soar with them. You are called to be an eagle and so must come higher into the presence of the Lord.
Stand fast beloved and do not look back! Do not look at things that are temporal for the enemy is seeking to distract you but look at the things that are eternal. Look at the Kingdom of God and realize that you are a part of God’s end time plan. The bride is arising from her slumber slowly and when you realize all you can be you will let Me do a work in your life! Let Me equip you, stabilize you and keep you standing untouched by this world. Stand in the liberty where Christ has made you free and do not be entangled with a yolk of bondage. Freedom is yours, war for it and stand where I have called you and having done all stand in the power of the Lord. I will bring each one of you to maturity and that maturity comes from knowing the Lord Jesus Christ. I am the only true and living God and Jesus is My name.
Soon He will consummate all things in Christ. Take the inheritance He left to you in His last will and testament and appropriate it by faith. He is the only one that died on the cross and was raised from the dead and who will come again and know what you have done with His last will and testament. Let us take the Word of God and run the race with it today. Let us say like Paul, I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.
Behold He comes quickly!!!
