No Worry, Be “In Him”

Rod Shimabukuro

In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his willEphesians 1:11
I love how Paul lays the foundation of who Christ is and who we are as Christians, IN HIM. Chapter 1 repeats the phrasing “In Him” which we should pay attention to. A couple of questions I’ve asked myself today are: What quality/characteristic of Christ does each “In Him” phrase describe? Because each “In Him” speaks of the nature of Jesus, and the character of God. I also ask, who am I or what promise do I receive as a result of being “In Him?”

In v.11, I have assurance of a future inheritance and God has a plan and purpose for me to walk in, live through, to obtain my eternal promise. His character of wisdom, understanding and love to oversee the purposes of my life.
Today, I want to live differently by believing more deeply and intimately. The action step for me is very internal, faith-challenging and growing. Believing, holding onto the internal assurance and confidence that my life “in Him” is secure... no doubt, no wavering, no questions asked. I trust His Word and today I will live with a clinging, believing faith - God has secured me forever.

There’s some insecurity, worry, fear... that I face on my insides. My thoughts and faith waver a little, away from a confident assurance that God has everything about my life under control. That has changed for the better once again! Thank you Jesus!
I love being IN YOU, Lord Jesus! Thank you for the firm, loving, reassuring reminder that I am IN CHRIST and YOU ARE IN ME! I No Need Worry - just keep living IN YOU!
