Memorise: And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: Ephesians 2:6
Read: Deuteronomy 32:7-13 (KJV)
7 Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask thy father, and he will shew thee; thy elders, and they will tell thee.
8 When the most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel.
9 For the LORD’S portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.
10 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.
11 As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings:
12 So the LORD alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him.
13 He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock;
Bible In One Year: 1 Chronicles 14-16, John 9:24-41
The eagle is a super bird. It is known to take higher flights because it wants to remain different and out of the league of other birds. In today’s Bible reading, our Lord Jesus Christ is compared to an eagle. He rides on the higher places. Ephesians 1:20-21 says Christ is raised above all and made to seat far above all dominion, power or throne. Being a child of the Eagle, you become an eaglet yourself, and so you have in you the traits of the eagle.
Unfortunately, many believers become ‘doubting Thomases’ when it comes to this, or they simply refuse to act it out. Any believer who is constantly living in failure and defeat is ignorant of who he or she is in Christ. You are far above fear, failures and defeat. Do not live below your original/spiritual position!
Action Point: Search through the scriptures and write out passages that talk about your spiritual placement and authority. Believe, confess and enforce them.

1. Stand up! stand up for Jesus,
Ye soldiers of the Cross!
Lift high His royal banner,
It must not suffer loss.
From victory unto victory
His army shall He lead,
Till every foe is vanquished,
And Christ is Lord indeed.
2. Stand up, stand up for Jesus,
The solemn watchword hear;
If while ye sleep he suffers,
Away with shame and fear.
Where’re ye meet with evil,
Within you or without,
Charge for the God of battles,
And put the foe to rout.
3. Stand up! stand up for Jesus !
Stand in His strength alone;
The arm of flesh will fail you,
Ye dare not trust your own.
Put on the gospel armour,
Each piece put on with prayer;
When duty calls or danger,
Be never wanting there.
4. Stand up! stand up for Jesus!
The strife will not be long;
This day the noise of battle,
The next the victor’s song.
To him that overcometh
A crown of life shall be;
He with the King of glory
Shall reign eternally.
