And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus. –Ephesians 2:6 NIV
What do you have to praise God for today? It can be as simple as waking up or as complex as the healing of a deep wound. But it can also be a storm that is coming in your life or that you are in. It can be prosperity and provision as well.
Praising God is not just thanking Him for the good things that have happened. It is so much more! No matter our hardship we are children of God. We have a place. We are seated at His right hand in Jesus. Our enemies are put beneath us. It’s not just a picture of Jesus on the throne, but it is you and I beside Jesus because we are in Him.
Praise be to God for He has given us a heavenly home. The road might get a little bumpy in this world as we move towards it; but in God’s time, we will be there enjoying spending eternity with Him.
Today when you walk outside, raise a hand and look towards heaven. Tell the angels you will see them in a little while but right now you have some praising to do!
- Father, help me to see beyond my circumstance to the place You have for me in heaven.
- I am a child of God; and in Jesus, my hardships and pain of this world are put beneath me as I am seated by Him in heaven.
