#5339 – From Heaven to Earth

Good morning people who pray from God’s divine vantage point.

We must not reduce spiritual down to figurative or symbolic. Spiritual is actually the greater reality. It can’t be fully understood by the human mind. But that is by design. We are spirit first! And this is to be our approach in prayer and in life.

The following two scriptures are spiritual realities for followers of Jesus Christ:

Hebrews 4:16 NIV Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

Ephesians 2:6 NIV And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus.

We are not called to just pray from earth to heaven – we are called to pray from heaven to earth! I don’t want to blow your mind right now, but I do want to expand and enlarge your view of what is a spiritual reality.

We are not beggars or slaves, calling out to a far-off God, hoping in vain that He might hear us, and that He possibly might care enough to answer a few of our prayers. This is not who our God is!

We are royal sons and daughters of our heavenly Father! We are hidden in Christ and raised with Christ, therefore, we are also seated with Christ in heavenly places!

It’s time to see ourselves differently – It’s time to see ourselves as God sees us. And it is also time to see ourselves seated where God has placed us – in heavenly places!

This reality changes our prayer life!
