For with You is the fountain of life; In Your light we see light. Psalm 36:9

Often in life you find yourself in places or positions you never dreamed possible. Some are most desirable and sought after and others are lowly and despicable.

Regardless of the process you are always in or moving towards a destination. This is not limited to only the physical but involves your mental and spiritual nature as well. You are placed by someone, something and have been located somewhere. It is an absolute reflection of your being that cannot be denied. It is your position.

Position: A place where someone or something is located or has been put. Your position spiritually has been determined upon entry into this world as in Adam you are a sinner.

Other aspects of your existance are also established: parents, name, address and physical being. These all move through life from situation, circumstances, decisions and are headed to one final location. Many of these are changeable and rearrangeable and are directly influenced by your own choices.

The Word of God is written on all hearts (Jeremiah 31:33) and speaks to everyone on a deeply personal level. His Word stirs the conscience which demands the correct answer to His truth and movement of life in that direction.

Denial of God’s guidance and remedied reconciliation of your soul ultimately hedges you in by your own beliefs. God made all humans in His image and that fulfillment is complete in aligning one’s soul with Him. You will never attain freedom from the bondage of sin and the proper foundation apart from Jesus.

The Cross of Christ on Good Friday was horrific to observe. Although by Sunday the Risen Christ defeated death and all that appeared positionally abstract had become absolutely fulfilled and established.

The end was the beginning and liberty could not ever again be denied by any believer in Christ. The King was on his throne and His subjects were established on a firm foundation that was most beautiful to behold. Physically, mentally and above all spiritually. All perfectly positioned in Jesus Christ.

For Your loving kindness is before my eyes, And I have walked in Your truth. Psalm 26:3
