THOUGHTS FOR YOUR DAY.

You are Welcome
Ephesians 1:6 (KJV)
6 To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
Ephesians 2:4-6 (KJV)
4But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
Ephesians 1:4-5 (KJV)
4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
5 Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
According to the good pleasure of his will he has made YOU accepted, raised YOU up, seated YOU in heavenly places in Christ.
'Good pleasure' says to me that God enjoyed doing this for us. This wasn't just some 'ho humm deal', no this brought pleasure to Him. He wanted to do this, He wanted to bring us CLOSE to Him.
Jesus suffered separation from God, was cast out from His presence so we could be made welcome there. Thank You Jesus!!
Say it ... I am welcome in the presence in the God. I am accepted in the Beloved. I am seated with Christ Jesus in the heavenlies, far above all principalities and powers, might and dominion. This is what I have because of what Jesus has done. This is what I have because God wanted me to have it. Thank You Lord for making me welcome. Thank You Lord ALWAYS giving me the Victory.
