The Lord will raise you up and seat you at His table.

John 12:1-2 tells us, “Then, six days before the Passover, Jesus came to Bethany, where Lazarus was who had been dead, whom He raised from the dead. There they made Him a supper; and Martha served, but Lazarus was one of those who sat at the table with Him.”

In your Bible, highlight or underline the words “raised from the dead” and “sat at the table with Him.”

These are powerful words that indicate what God still does for His people today. Just as Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead and seated him at the table with Him, He does the same for you and I. He raises us up out of our dead, lifeless and unresponsive state, and He seats us with Himself in a seat of honor and glory (see Ephesians 2:5,6).

To be dead, and then made alive is truly a life-changing experience. But God doesn’t stop there. He seats us at His table, in relationship, fellowship and communion with Him.

You may not be invited to sit at anyone’s table because of who you were and what you’ve done. But God has forgiven you. He has washed you. He has removed the old and dressed you in newness of Christ. He has seated you in a place of honor and glory with Jesus. What a tremendous blessing!

If He raised you up spiritually, He can raise up your dead relationships, your dead finances, your dead sickly body, or your dead way of thinking. Anything that’s lifeless and unresponsive, He will quicken and cause to come alive by His word and power (see John 6:63)!

Prayer: Father, thank You for raising me up and seating me in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Thank You that I’m no longer dead. Thank You that I’m alive and seated in heavenly places in Christ. Lord, I speak life to every dead thing in my life. Raise it up up by Your power and might. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

    Tears of joy that because He is revealing to me that I am hearing Him correctly as He speaks to me. Pray, that I wait right and patiently on Him. It’s a process, and He is letting me know that He is dressing me as I have told people I was in transition. So many things have happened and I was almost homeless, but God. I have been hearing the chains drop with a situations turning around. By this devotional I know it’s already done.🙏❤

  5. I have been praying asking the Lord to rise me up my husband said the Holy Spirit confirmed this while I read it to Him cus I want truth and accuracy in my life. I have so many lifess areas in my mind bondages for so many years I’ve been crying out to the Lord for deliverence for my life of torment in my mind it has lead me in the past to try to kill myself and hurt myself I want freedom I’m hoping the Lord comes thru praying asking begging deliver me from doubt unbelief and fear and many other things that torment me. I am trying to persevere even when the feelings aren’t there I wish it would be instantaneously but I’m seeing it’s a process. I started going back to church again praying more and trying harder it’s been hard but I’m trying to cry out to Him. People hang on don’t give up I know it’s hard the battle is intense praying for God’s children to hang on stay faithful. Please pray for my deliverance and also be able to be used by the Lord in my life. Ty

  6. HALLELUJAH!! Thank you for your resurrection power resuscitating every dead situation in my life!
    God bless you always! ❤️❤️

  7. Thank you Keisha for the video you made for today. Your video made total sense. God does not want anyone above Him. God wants us to be encouraging to other people so they will seek HIS face and HIS wisdom. How do we do that? Find a quiet place, open your Bible, read scripture, and ask God to reveal to you what He wants you to know. God is so good to us! God answers His children. But God answers IN HIS TIMING. This is important because God‘s timing is perfect. He will answer you when the answer benefits you most. Rejoice! God has His BEST plan for your life!
