“May you be blessed by the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. The highest heavens belong to the LORD, but the earth he has given to mankind.” ~ Psalms 115:15-16
As I have mentioned in my earlier blogs on this matter and hopefully have explained clearly, there is no weapon in Heaven or on Earth that can substitute in Spiritual Warfare more than our simply learning to embrace and relax in Our Heavenly Father’s presence.
This is being made “The Righteousness of God”, regardless of our current hang ups, bad habits, struggles and human frailties. To be reconciled to God and to be able to stand in his presence honest and open about our shortcomings and to still know that we are forgiven, accepted and loved.
Furthermore, knowing that he has all the power to help you in and out of any situation you may presently find yourself in.
In the highest, is our God and when we are seated with him (in Christ Jesus) at his own right hand, we are being placed with a vantage point over many of our wandering and gossiping peers.
Listen, to see things from God’s perspective and to be close enough to his heart to hear and feel his judgments. What a gift this is, to be able to sit with God and to learn from him personally how to rule and reign over the circumstances we face in this life.
You see, when we have opened our hearts to Jesus and given him that place to live, rule and reign from, when we have said yes to Jesus as Our Lord we have said yes to so much more than what I believe many of us have yet to obtain.
“The glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.”
~ Colossians 1:27 (NIV)
As we are seated with Christ at The Right Hand Side of Our Father in Heaven, overlooking a throne room of angelic assistance as far as our eyes can see, we can now begin to learn from God’s own Heart , Will and Wisdom how we as his children and Ambassadors of His Kingdom are to rule and reign here on this Earth.
“You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”
~ 1st Peter 2:9 (NIV)
Here is key to victory in Spiritual Warfare. You knowing your identity in Christ as one of God’s kids and as you spend more time in The Fathers Presence, receiving spiritual insight, gifts and supernatural abilities that better equip us to love and serve others, the light of His Kingdom alone will not only be resting upon you, illuminating these lesser detectable things on Earth but as you grow in your gifting’s and calling and you are able to see and discern these things more clearly and correctly in the spiritual realm, it will still and always ultimately be first your relationship with God the Father and Jesus Christ The Son that will be Heavens great delegation of Holy Spirit Authority on our life and ministry.
“We are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.
~ Philippians ~ 3:20 (NLT)
Knowing who we are and from where we reign and from whom we are learning is the up most to seeing victories in our Spiritual Warfare.
In some future blogs I will plan on expounding a bit more on our supernatural gifting’s.
God is so good.
In His Love, Pastor Scott Boggs
