In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation– having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, Ephesians 1:13
Think of yourself as a snowman as pictured above. When we are saved our spirits are sealed with His Spirit, the Spirit of promise.
Now, look at what wasn’t sealed.
When someone showed me this, so many lies were almost immediately dispelled. It was a duh moment for me. I realized how often I was not walking by the Spirit and feeling like a victim to my sin, warfare, my emotions, my thinking, circumstances.
Today, I have snapped at my family. I’ve been loving and served my family. Then, I’ve snapped again. There have been times in life when I have felt so defeated over things like this. This is exactly what the enemy wants me to do- Get out of my spirit, then feel guilty over it- but instead of using that as a reminder that my faith is IN HIM- IN HIS FINISHED WORK- HIS SEAL IN ME- The enemy wants me to get all up in my soul… and stop letting the Spirit lead me by my spirit.
The solution is to repent because of the TRUTH of His Word. He says I am sealed. Then I can let it go and move on.
Bless you with the TRUTH that you are sealed with His Spirit, that because of Jesus you can go boldly to the throne of grace and receive all you need for life and godliness one little moment at a time.
In Christ Alone,
