Seated Higher

Seated Higher

ENGLISH

Seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come—Ephesians 1:20-21

I am so glad there is one seated higher. Higher than politics, power, and any pandemic. And not just a little above, but far above. So much so that there's no one named past, present, or future that will ever hold the position, title, or identity of him. His name is Jesus Christ. Therefore, don't bow in fear to any other name but only the one seated at the right hand of God.

ASK THIS: Are you bowing to something other than Christ?

DO THIS: Say the name of the thing you've been bowing to.

PRAY THIS: God, forgive me for my idolatry and for worshipping this thing I fear.

Immeasurable Power

ENGLISH

And what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might.—Ephesians 1:19

Have you ever stood on the break of a beach and felt wave upon wave beat upon you? Sometimes you will dare to walk deeper and deeper until the power sweeps you right off your feet.

So great is God's power toward us. It's immeasurable. Yet it's only real and felt by those who believe. It's wave, upon wave, upon wave of power working for every believer. So stop denying it and start feeling it. Let its waves beat against you. The waves of love. The waves of grace. The waves of forgiveness. Let them wash over you, through you; receive it and believe it. Let it lift you off your feet.

ASK THIS: Which wave do you need to feel today—love, grace, or forgiveness?

DO THIS: Let's God immeasurable wave of power beat against your sin and unbelief.

PRAY THIS: God, allow me to see and feel your immeasurable power today.

Enlightened

ENGLISH

Having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints—Ephesians 1:18

Sometimes, it's hard to describe a supernatural process therefore we use natural metaphors. In this case, Paul says our "hearts have eyes"—yet we all know our natural hearts do not have natural eyes. Now our natural extremities do play a small role in the process. But as Jesus said, we can still "see [naturally] without seeing [spiritually]." This means that Paul wants us to look beyond the natural, to something we miss spiritually—hope and riches. And it's a glorious sight. It's glorious! Today stop fretting, fearing, and being frightened. Join me in seeing something different than the present natural reality. Hope in something that's more real and more than natural.

ASK THIS: What's preventing you from seeing a spiritual reality? 

DO THIS: Confess this to God.

PRAY THIS: God, open the eyes of my spiritual heart—let me see your glory.

The Thankful Friend

ENGLISH

For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers—Ephesians 1:15-16

I love the spirit of Paul at this moment. His tone is enthusiastic. He moves from a coach to a champion of the Ephesian believers. And he's thankful. He gives thanks because he hears something about this church from other people. It's two-fold. First, how great a faith they have in the Lord. Second, of their love for each other. I can see Paul, pumping his fist in the air and shouting, "Yes! Yes!" And he's so excited to tell them that's he has been thankful for them in Christ.

When's the last time you have told a friend "thanks" for all the wonderful things they do? Take some time today to do just that.

ASK THIS: Who is someone you need to tell, thanks?

DO THIS: Tell them—in a text, email, or phone call.

PRAY THIS: God, thanks for giving me a person like ______________________. I am a better man for having know them.

Rich Guaranteed

ENGLISH

In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will, so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory. In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory.—Ephesians 1:11-14

If you've been looking for riches, don't look in the wrong place. Believe it or not, you have already been given an inheritance. It's something God has been waiting to give you for a very long time. He's been thinking about it. He's been thinking about you. It's in his will to give it. And it comes in Christ; in him. So hear this truth; the truth. And then believe in him, for it's the truth. And do you know how you know you've received it? You are given a seal. A living seal and God's portion lives within you; it's the Spirit. It's God's living promise and the sign that there are riches that you'll possess; there more than here.

ASK THIS: Are you looking for the right riches?

DO THIS: Willingly receive the inheritance, and believe it's coming.

PRAY THIS: God, the things you do are unbelievable. I try to convince myself that it's not true. Help my unbelief.

Redeemed

Redeemed

ENGLISH

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight.—Ephesians 1:7-8

Redemption has come! You and I have been purchased by the rich payment of Christ's blood to God for our trespasses. This includes redemption from the guilt of our trespasses, the continuous bondage from our trespasses, and the inevitable punishment from our trespasses.

Are you looking for freedom, redemption, and forgiveness? There is only one who provides it. There is only one who can afford its expense. There is only one who can free you from guilt, bondage, and punishment. It is found only in him—that is Christ.

ASK THIS: Do you want freedom?

DO THIS: If so, come to Christ, who is willing to lavish you with grace.

PRAY THIS: God, I come to you guilty, burdened, and in need of forgiveness. I realize my sin hurts you, me, and others. Purchase me back from my sin and call me a son, slave, and subject of your will. Be my Savior and Lord. In Christ's name and blood—Amen.

Believe It

ENGLISH

In love he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved.—Ephesians 1:4-6

I don't know why we have such a hard time believing it, but you are not an afterthought of God. You were a pre-thought of God. He predestined your adoption as a son. But for some reason, men prefer to think of themselves as orphans left abandoned while holding to thoughts of defeat and rejection. Brother—your Father has gone to great loving lengths in pursuit of you. Willfully and purposefully, he sought you with grace. Believe it.

ASK THIS: What is one negative thought you have as God's son?

DO THIS: Believe he's pursuing you, despite this thought.

PRAY THIS: God, forgive my unbelief. I accept your grace and your pursuit of me as your child. Destroy all untruthful thoughts that would suggest otherwise.

Great Grace

Do-it-again-a-devo-by-Vince-Miller

Great Grace

ENGLISH

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.—2 Corinthians 12:9

There is something greater than any issue we will ever encounter. There is a power more perfect than mere human effort. There's a victory that comes in human weakness. And while it's counterintuitive to you, it's not a scam. It's grace. Grace is greater than all our sin. So boast gladly in Christ and receive power and be made perfect by God.

ASK THIS: Why do you live in defeat when God has given you victory in grace?

DO THIS: Receive and accept his grace, and keep moving forward.

PRAY THIS: God, your grace is too unbelievable. But thank you. I reject your grace no more. Receive my confession, repentance, and may I go in your grace today.

Triple Blessing

ENGLISH

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places.—Ephesians 1:3

When we are blessed, and we don't deserve it, then we cannot contain it. It should be the primary proclamation of a believer. In this case, Paul leads with his proclamation in his letter to the Ephesians. He traces all blessings back to the Blesser, who extends every spiritual blessing to his creation. Stop today and count your blessings. Those you enjoy. The ones you pass over. Reflect on how they trace back to the Blesser and give him thanks.

ASK THIS: For what have you not given thanks?

DO THIS: Tell someone "thank you," start with God. And then thank someone else.

PRAY THIS: God, thank you for _________________________________

Mighty Oak

ENGLISH

He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.—Jeremiah 17:8

Do you want to be strong and get stronger in your faith? Increased strength requires appropriate inputs to increase the outputs. It's dependant on resources—as water is for a tree. We need the right resources so that when the heat or drought proves us, we can withstand the test. But not just withstand it, bear fruit in it! If the heat is on and you sense a drought, seek resources immediately! Do not fear or be anxious. You have a generous God who will supply all your needs.

ASK THIS: What resource do you need today?

DO THIS: Plead for the father's provision.

PRAY THIS: God, I need this immediately _________________________________

Another In The Fire

ENGLISH

He answered and said, “But I see four men unbound, walking in the midst of the fire, and they are not hurt; and the appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods.”—Daniel 3:25

We are destined to walk through a fire at some point. And the fire, while purifying, is also painful persecution. In this instance, three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, were tossed into an overheated furnace and would be cooked alive under King Nebuchadnezzar's fury. Yet a fourth man appears. His glory was brighter. His presence protective. He walked with them in the fire. Brother, if you are in the fire and feel the persecution of others, remember you don't have to go it alone. The Son of God wants to walk with you.

ASK THIS: What's the fire you are walking in?

DO THIS: Don't do it alone. Ask God to walk with you.

PRAY THIS: God, I am facing a raging fire. Others seek to do me harm. Be brighter and protect me.
