Thank God For Your High Position

“The brother of humble circumstances is to glory in his high position”
James 1:9


For a child of God, the entire New Testament is filled with the wealth of our riches and “high position” in Jesus Christ.

Scripture tells us that God has “seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 2:6). Now that’s a high position! We have been given the best seat in the universe from which to view all of life.

Our humble circumstances may sometimes seem to overwhelm us, if that is all we behold.

So let us never forget that “the brother of humble circumstances is to glory in his high position.”

That’s right, I encourage you to glory in your high position in Jesus Christ. Praise God for the “high position” He has given you in Him.

Be seated with Christ in heavenly places, right now, and then, from this “high position,” glory and thank God in your humble circumstances, even as you sit in glory, in the presence of Christ Jesus, far above and away from the circumstances of this world.

Praise Him. Glory in Christ Jesus for, as Psalm 36 declares, “with You is the fountain of life; in Your light we see light” (Vs. 9).

Seeing all things in the light of His light always causes praise and glory in Christ Jesus. Thank God for your “high position.” Hallelujah!
