Devotional – The Best Seat In The House

“For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus.”  Ephesians 2:6

Listen to the audio version

bestseatWhen I think of this scripture, I see how big our possibilities are. Jesus’ work on the cross, his shedding of blood, his entire abandonment to the Father’s will, and his powerful resurrection, have culminated a heavenly inheritance for you and me.  He has given us his righteousness, opened the way to the Father’s heart, by uniting us with Christ Jesus.  He has raised us from the dead with Christ. Wow!  We weren’t even on the earth when Jesus went to the cross for our sins, but look what he did!.  Christ now sits next to the Father, and we are seated with him in the heavenly realms. The heavenly realm is a whole new country.  It’s a place where we now have access to the throne of God, through Christ Jesus.  Every work that he did on the cross for our healing, provision, salvation and victory is complete and redeemed on the cross, and made available through him.  Our access is a lifetime pass.  I encourage you to take the time to be with him, in the quiet, enter into his throne room, have fellowship with his heart, pause and listen, and make your petition before him. Keep knocking and asking, because you and I have access. We are blessed beyond our wildest dreams with the best seat in the house, because we are seated in heavenly realms, with Jesus.

Amen!

DEVOTIONAL – As Grains of Sand-Part 2

As the Grains of Sand – Part 2

The vast and powerful waters overwhelm me as my eyes scan the breadth of the ocean. The water’s movement is not random. The waves press forward, swelling with a rhythm that is noticeable as the tide washes the shore each time, shifting the sand below. Can you picture it? Can you imagine the power that the water holds?

FURYLike each grain of sand, we are uniquely shaped and designed by the Creator of the universe. Like the pebbles and shells in the water, also our edges are softened as His Word continually washes over us.

“That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,”  Eph 5:26

This washing over us is a continual work in our lives. He will carry it to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. [Philippians 1:6] His cleansing through the blood is like water that washes the sand on the shores. While we look to the sand as an example of how uniquely each of us is created, like the powerful waters that wash onto the shore, the source of that power is overwhelming. There is a grace that flows from the cross that is so overwhelming and so powerful that we cannot contain it. Let’s be caught in the current of this powerful grace. Let is wash over us, sanctifying and cleansing us. Look to the cross, where his grace flows and get caught in the current of his grace.

Prayer:  Heavenly Father, Wash me today with the grace that flows from the cross today. Cleanse me from sin and soften my edges that continues to show the good work that you are doing in me.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

DEVOTIONAL – As the Grains of Sand

10553367_513666855399699_1378142939586193954_nPart 1

A few summers ago, we took a trip to Florida and I remember one specific afternoon that we spent at Daytona Beach. The water was vast, and shimmered in the sun with a heavenly blue. It’s power and depth really made me step back. I was overwhelmed by the beauty of God’s creation. I sat down in the edge of the water and just soaked up the view in front of me. My hands started to play in the soft white sand and then I looked into my hands. Each grain of sand, was unique. The sand itself was made of flecks and shapes, and none of them were the same. It was really a very personal experience with God at that moment, knowing that his creativity was far beyond my own imagination. In that moment I was reminded that this whole world is made with God’s master mind of invention and design. The most wonderful thought for me was being reminded that I was a part of that amazing design.

Like the grains of sand, we are shaped and honed by the master designer, unique by his plan. Even though you may be a twin, or there is someone that looks similar to you, there will always be differences. Like the grains of sand, we are shaped by our environment. The waters that carry us, smooth our edges, and the storms may literally heave us into a new place in our lives. No matter what, we remain a unique design that God is continually shaping as he carries us through the waters. Like the grains of sand, enjoy the ride on the waves. Trust in him and take in the changes. You are not floating aimlessly. The tide is directed by his hand and no matter where you land, he is with you. He has purposed each second of your life. Your days and all of their details are written down personally by the hand of God. You are a “one-of-a-kind” and like the stars, the snowflakes and the sand, his dreams for your life are just as unique.

“Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” — Psalm 139:16

10 WORDS OF WISDOM & QUOTES (some stuff life throws at us)

1) A chronic liar will not only believe his own lies but shares them wth others behind your back. That makes them a liar and a gossiper.

2) People who enable others to cause trouble are like a sore that never heals. They never let go and it makes them look like a fool, undesirable, impish and cowardly.

3) When you try to keep the past alive, by intruding on the lives of people who have exited your life, it only makes you look like a fool when the security man eventually drags you away.

4) When you take the feelings of others lightly, you distance yourself from love, as well as deep and authentic relationships.

5) When you leave God out of the equation, he can’t help you.

6) An anchor that falls to the ground cannot secure you in the storm, without a chain attached to it. Such is the case with hope as your anchor, because you need faith, like the chain, to secure you through the storm.
.
7) Daily acknowledging there is a Creator, puts your heart in the right place with a bigger perspective on life.

8) Daily acknowledging that you need to be rescued, means that you understand you cannot save yourself.

9) When you focus on fear, the negative and worry, they can lead your steps astray. Find freedom from these things before you are literally destroyed by your own words.

10) The only one who can make you truly complete is the one who made you. The original designer has the master blue-prints.
