And raised us up with him, and made us to sit with him in the heavenly places, in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2.6.

I recall when I first began to serve the Lord that I prayed He would raise me up with Him. I thought at the time that if the Lord should raise me up with Him I would then have the power to do God’s will. It was wrong for me to pray like this, for I had started from myself. All real beginnings lie with Christ. The Bible says that I have been raised with Christ. This is an accomplished fact. Remember that the more we turn in to look at ourselves, the worse we become.

This daily devotional comes from the book
