I AM POSITIONED! WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

 I Am   Positioned  !

I Am Positioned!

It is no secret, yet you might not know… that you are positioned. Positioned? Ok, what does that mean?

WHAT DO YOU MEAN… POSITIONED?

I don’t mean to bore you, but I’m starting with a few definitions because I think they help (make easier!) for us to relate and understand how, why and where we are positioned. Positioned means:

  • A place where someone or something is located or has been put. [a]
  • A particular way in which someone or something is placed or arranged. [a]
  • A posture, a stance, an attitude, a pose… [a]
  • Social standing or status; rank. [b]
You are officially positioned in a specific place, in a particular way with a spiritual rank.

WE ARE SITTING IN A SPECIFIC PLACE

I was surprised to find out that once we got saved, we sit in a specific place, ‘the heavenlies’. I knew that when God raised Jesus from the dead, He made Jesus sit at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above everything! Everything meaning above all rule, authority, power, dominion and every name that is named... [3] What I didn't know was that God also decided we are to sit with Jesus in the heavenly places too. Wow! That means that you and I sit in a privileged place. [4] To realize this was an eye-opener! Sitting in 'high' places also means you have authority to rule! You also have power; God's power at work in and through you. In Christ, you are:

Fearless. Generous. Confident. Creative. Purposeful. Accepted. Loved. Rich. Mighty. Successful. Beautiful. Favored. Positioned. Powerful. Brave. Healed. Prosperous. Alive. Free...

WE ARE RESTING!

If we are not resting, most likely we are doing… The problem is not in doing, it is what we are doing? Seriously, the "secret" is to learn to "sit", resting assured on who God says you are; then you will be able to stand against the enemy and the things that come against you. 

We are sitting! It means we can rest in what Jesus has done – what He already accomplished. He did it (died for us and was resurrected – forgiving our sins, conquering death and destruction! We stand in agreement with what Jesus said and did: "It is finished." He defeated the enemy. Just like Jesus, "We've got the power!" What power? Resurrection power (See more about this kind of power here! Trust Him. His WOrd is Truth! See yourself sitting, find yourself resting!

WE HAVE A HIGH STATUS

You are God's daughter. Can you see that being a child of God, His heir, not only gives you a specific place in His Kingdom, but also a rank and position. Think of gold stars... ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. You are unique, out of the ordinary, an original!  Our relationship with God is always changing - we grow, going higher and higher, from glory-to-glory.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE POSITIONED IN CHRIST?

It means that we are set in a specific place: the heavenlies. We are sitting in a particular way: resting in what Jesus already did at the Cross and His resurrection. We have a new perspective (God's perspective of who we are). We are God's beautiful daughters! Ranked and positioned high, with authority and dominion. Mighty to do and be all that He has called us to be. Have faith, expect to see what belongs to you be real in our life. You are positioned in Christ, get ready to receive!
