Have you ever opened your eyes in the morning wondering where you were? I have done that. Spending the night somewhere and I wake up thinking that I’ve gotten turned around. You know, so used to sleeping in your own room with your head in one direction and for a moment you are disoriented. Or in a new house with the bedroom rearranged differently than the last house you lived in. Then you realize that you are in new territory and you get realigned and straightened out.
As believers we do this don’t we? We are so used to everyday ordinary life. Then God begins to show us our new home –full of His changes. We wake up disoriented wondering where we are. But God want us to have this new life to its fullness – to know the power of living and walking in this new life. Without it we will struggle all our days but with it we go from ordinary to extraordinary which is our birthright.
Oh beloved, don’t worry. This is not a time for confusion. It’s a time for resolution! It’s time to resolve to take the Lord’s new life for us and forget the old place. Once you were under your circumstances. Once you lived beneath your calling. Once you were fearful and lacked commitment. But now God wants to tell you all about the new life! As a believer, you are moved out of one place and moving into another. It’s glorious! No longer in a lumpy old bed of natural tendencies you are now supernaturally changed into a faith talking, love giving, mercy carrying disciple!
You’re now seated in heavenly places with Christ! You are walking in authority and you can take your old thoughts captive to the obedience of Christ! You are living in the land of lavish blessings where God is with you wherever you go! Ordinary living has vanished. You are now an extraordinary citizen of a new and living way! Once you were not even a citizen. But now you have been granted citizenship in heaven!
God loves you and He’s for you! Run to His Word this morning and read about your new living arrangements! Read what Christ did for you and what God has provided for you! Read how Holy Spirit indwelling will give you strength and wisdom to live this spectacular new life! Old things have passed away behold it’s all become new. Rejoice that you can live divinely imparted truth as you wake up in the Light of God’s Glory and Grace!
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.
Hebrews 10:19-22 Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.
Colossians 2:10 And in Him you have been made complete [achieving spiritual stature through Christ], and He is the head over all rule and authority [of every angelic and earthly power]. AMP
