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?
