God will raise you up

“and raised us up with him, and made us to sit with him in the heavenly places, in Christ Jesus:” (Ephesians 2:6)

God never intends for us to live defeated and constantly bombarded by the enemy. When Christ died, he overcame principalities and powers and he spoiled (disarmed) them, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it. (Colossians 2:15)

Christ Jesus is seated in heavenly places far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name on earth. (Ephesians 1:21) And since we are seated with Christ Jesus in heavenly places, then we are also seated above all principalities and powers. The enemy has no power and authority over us and the power that lives in us is far greater than any power that is in the world.

The promises in the word of God for us states that if we obey God that he would set us high above all the nations of the world. “And the Lord will make you the head and not the tail, and you shall only go up and not down,” (Deuteronomy 28:1, 13)

We are no longer to live our lives believing the lies that we are defeated, living at the expense of others and waiting for other people to be kind to us in order to survive. It is up to us to grasp the understanding of who we are in God, grab hold of those promises, declare them daily over ourselves and walk in our God given authority.

We are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus and we have received power to trample over every power of the enemy and absolutely nothing can harm us. (Romans 8:37; Luke 10:19) You are the righteousness of God and his official representatives on the earth. Therefore walk in this authority and live high above all of your challenges.
