The only limits we have are the one’s we have accepted and God did not put them there. God, the one who spoke light and life into existence. The one who made the heaven’s and the earth in 6 days and rested on the 7th. We have access to the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead on that 3rd day. Why are we as his children not walking in this same power?
I believe the root of this problem is a misunderstanding of our identity. As we look at the life of Jesus, we can see that the devil tempted Jesus in the wilderness with “if you are the Son of God…” (Matthew 4:3). Why did satan attack Jesus here first? If he could make Jesus fall into the deception of being from this earth rather than seated in heavenly places, it would hinder him from walking out what God had commanded of him. A misunderstanding of your identity as a new creation in Christ will have you blending in with the rest of the world rather than slaying the giants in front of you. We must have a revelation of who we are as new creations. We must ask and receive truth about our new identity as a Child of God, the power of the Holy Spirit, and the authority that comes from being seated in heavenly places. When we do not understand these fundamentals, we blend in rather than stand out. You are bright light that was never meant to be hidden. Rather, God wants his light to shine through you for all the world to see.
Placed in heaven, we have the upper hand. What Jesus died to do was not only free us from our sin, heal us and make us whole, but adopt us as his children. God no longer looks at as servants but as son’s and daughter’s! We are more than conquerors, victorious, and triumphant as we trust in his promises. We are co-heirs of Christ! Another word for coheir is joint heir. Which means you are a person who has received and inheritance from Jesus Christ. When Jesus died on the cross and you made him the Lord of your life, you were given that same power and same authority. You are no longer a citizen of earth, but a citizen of heaven. The evidence of this is the Holy Spirit. Therefore, sickness and disease, lack of provision, and satan himself is all beneath you. No wonder why the Lord encouraged with John 16:33!
Do you have the heavenly perspective of being a Child of God and a coheir of Christ? God did not send us the spirit of God with limits. He sent his spirit without measure (John 3:34). God desires us to walk in the same power Jesus did. In fact, he desires us to do even greater works (John 14:12-14). We have been told many opinions of who we are and what we can do (especially from the world around us). However, opinions are just earthly views. What God has spoken is FACT and will never wither away, even when this world does.
Have you allowed the world’s opinions to shape how you see yourself?
Have you accidentally put limits on God and what he wants to do through you?
How can you accurately see yourself the way HE see’s you?
How does accurately seeing yourself as a coheir of Christ, seated in heavenly places, effect your everyday life?
We are always walking in victory!👏 Even with mistakes and stumbling, God upholds us with his right hand🤲 When we are hard pressed, squeezed, stretched, all we have to do is call on the name of Jesus and he will meet our weakness with his strength💜 We are told in the bible we will go through trials and tribulations. We can look at the disciples and Jesus life and see that the world does not always like or accept the love of God. But, we are here on this earth to be God praisers, not people pleasers👌 If you are down, understand you are really rising up!⛰ There’s never a moment when you have not been victorious as God’s child🥇 This life can have many times where it may feel like it or even look like it! BUT God’s word stands true! We dont just stay down… We are always on the rise! 🌞 The Blood of Jesus triumphs over all and as his heir, we are triumphant too! 👑💪
“Will I be able to do this? It doesn’t seem possible. I don’t want to fail. I just need to rely on God. But why do I feel so anxious? Shouldn’t I feel his peace?”…
Are all thoughts that have crossed my mind tonight. I laid down hours ago but worry and fear of failure seemed to keep me awake.
But, Holy Spirit ever so gently brought this scripture to my remembrance.
“There is no risk of failure with God. Why should I let worries paralyze me?”
We sometimes forget who has chosen us and how he saves us every single time, no matter the circumstance. He is our refuge, our great strength, and will always meet our weakness with his strength.
Why would I worry when God is in control and is working everything out for my good?
Why would I worry when God is for me? Who could be against me?
Why would I worry when he says I am more than a conqueror and victorious?
For those of you dealing with worry tonight, rest in his love.
Rest in the fact that there is nothing God won’t do for you that is for your good.
There is no such thing as failure with God, because even if we stumble he upholds us with his right hand.
Tonight I thank God for being the only one who is truly steadfast. He is always awake and always willing to listen and speak what I need most. He is gentle, kind, and so patient. He is my strength, my help, and my peace.
There has never been a moment that I have regretted giving my life to Jesus.
I have lost friends, family has become distant, strangers have insulted me, and even those in the house of faith there are those who do not understand me.
No matter the circumstance, words that were spoken to me, some words that were never spoken at all (silence never explained), God has given me his heavenly peace.
Worldly insults may build. But, I am wrapped in Abba’s heavenly love.
Even if you are surrounded right now with what seems like darkness, the Lord is a light for you.
Even if everyone has left you, your heavenly father never will.
He hears your cry for help and is responding.
He knowns the tears you’ve cried, he has kept them in a bottle for the day of his judgment.
He wants to exchange what you’ve been feeling from all the rejection for his complete and total acceptance.
There is nothing like the Love of God.

For me, I think one of the hardest lies that God has torn down (repeatedly) is that I can somehow earn his love…🙃
I love the way CSB simply puts Romans 11:6…
It’s not about what we do or don’t do. It is all about what Jesus has already done🙌💜
When we try to earn God’s love, that is not grace. That is a legalistic mentality🚫
+You are chosen.
+You are loved.
+You are free from what has once bound you down.
+A double portion of blessing and honor where there used to be shame.
I am so thankful for where there is sin, grace abounds!💜
