Seated in Heavenly Places
Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) and hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. —Ephesians 2:5,6
We’re seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 1:3 says, “Blessed be the God…who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.” We’re blessed to be a part of the body of Christ because all things have been put under His feet. We may just be the skin on the bottom of the left foot; but sickness is still beneath us, and we walk on top of it! Sickness cannot exist in heavenly places, and that’s where we are. That’s the way God looks at us. When we beg or plead for healing, He doesn’t know what we’re talking about. He sees every satanic bondage beneath our feet. Sickness keeps trying to crawl up on the body of Christ, but it’s up to us to resist it. James 4:7 says, “Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” And Paul exhorts us never to give place to the devil. (Eph. 4:27.) Jesus gave us all authority over the devil. He told His disciples, “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore” (Matt. 28:18,19). He also said, “Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you” (Luke 10:19). Jesus has overcome the enemy, so keep sickness under your feet where it belongs. Refuse to let the devil rob you.
Confession: I’m part of the body of Christ, seated with Jesus in heavenly places. Sickness is under my feet.
