Positioned in Christ

Ephesians 1:19-21 — 19 That power is like the working of His mighty strength, 20 which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly realms, 21 far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come (NIV).

Perhaps you are familiar with the three most important words in real estate: location, location, location. I believe the same three words apply in the spirit realm. It’s vitally important for you to understand where the Father is located, where Jesus is located, and where you are located.

God the Father is seated on the throne (Psalm 47:8), and Jesus sits at His right hand in the heavenly realms (Mark 16:19). Scripture also indicates that Jesus sits far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given. He has incomparably great power (Ephesians 1:19). In fact, God has placed everything under His feet (Ephesians 1:22). Glory!

But that’s not even the best part. Look at Ephesians 2:6, “And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus” (NIV). Those who are in Christ have been seated with Him in heaven. Wow, what an unbelievable revelation!

God has already prepositioned you for victory. He has placed everything under your feet in Christ Jesus. The only way you can be defeated is if you choose to step down from your place of authority and engage the enemy. Satan has already been defeated, and he knows it. So he makes it his mission to get you out of your position in Christ. Doing so is the only chance he has. If you remain in your place of authority, the devil has to get through the Father and Jesus in order to get to you. And that’s not happening!

1 Peter 3:22Now Christ has gone to heaven. He is seated in the place of honor next to God, and all the angels and authorities and powers accept His authority (NLT).
