"But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, He sat down at the right hand of God" (Hebrews 10:12 ESV).

From Amazon #1 Best-Selling Author Wes Raley comes a powerful new book about how to have the peace of God in a world of striving, stress, and anxious toil.

We know that Jesus came to give us an abundant life (John 10:10). Yet many of us would frequently describe our lives with words such as busy, stressed, anxious, or even overwhelmed. Despite how much we dislike the weight of such a frantic existence, we often carry on living with a gap between our experience and the fullness of life we know that Jesus has to offer. But it doesn't have to be this way.

God has given us a blueprint in His Word so powerful that if fully embraced, it will effortlessly transport us into the abundant life that Jesus died to give us. We must finally come to grips with the fact that even though our culture may desire us to live fast-paced, ragged lives, surely God does not. God does not want us to be exhausted, burned out, or at the end of our ropes. His Way always leads us to the fruit of the Spirit: Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23). And while those qualities can only be born in us by His Spirit, they are also indicators of the kind of experience we should be having if we have fully embraced all that is available to us through Christ.

Hebrews 10:12 makes it clear that the position of victory is seated. Seated in our identity in Christ. Seated in all that He has accomplished. Seated in His perfect sovereignty and plan for our lives. Seated in His love. The confidence and peace that come from being seated with Christ is the breakthrough you long for in your soul. Any sense of dissatisfaction or lack is cast away and then filled up by the fullness of Christ when we remain seated in Him.

Scripture makes it clear that as believers we are already seated with Christ in the heavenly realms - and that is a work of God (Ephesians 2:6). But is our job to stay seated. We must allow that heavenly reality to become our earthly one. Just as Jesus prayed that God's will would be done "on earth as it is in heaven" (Matthew 6:10), may we allow the heavenly reality of our seated position to be our earthly one. Staying seated in our hearts and lives even in a world that daily stands - striving for the fruit that could only come from a life trusting and resting in Him alone.

Through the clear Biblical passages and teachings in this book you will be able to:

•Find peace in the total acceptance of God.

•Be set free from the rat race of performance, striving, stress, and dissatisfaction of the world.

•Learn to value, prefer, and prioritize the praise of God over the praise of men.

•Live with the confidence that comes from being secure in your identity as a son or daughter of God.

•Feel what it is like to live with the peace of God available to you at all times.

•Study the Biblical passages that unlock the truth of abiding and resting in Christ.

•Learn the practical implications of your spiritual position in Christ.

•Be able to share with others the transition of death to life, works to grace, bondage to freedom, and slavery to sonship.

•Recognize when you begin to fall back into a works mentality, legalism, or judgment.

•Grow in gratitude for all that God has accomplished on your behalf.

•Embrace a fuller picture and understanding of God's magnificent love for you.

•Enjoy the true rest that God desires you to have.

Seated is the position of victory. Get your copy today so that you can begin to have a life of the same.

Amazon #1 Best-Selling Devotional

This devotional will help you find the true rest that God offers! In powerful, succinct form, this book will stir you to be done with a life of striving and embrace God's perfect design for your days.

Just ask yourself these questions: Do you long for a greater purpose in your life? Do your days feel rushed, scattered, and broken...pointless? Have you found yourself searching for God's voice in the midst of the confusion, only to hear nothing over the noise of your own thoughts? Do you feel like you need clarity on what to do next in your life? 

If any of these apply to you, then this devotional will be the perfect tool to help you hear God's voice, follow what He is saying, and walk in your destiny.

Words That Proceed will be the inspiration and direction you need, speaking right into the heart of your current life situation. As Jesus quoted in Matthew 4:4-"It is written, 'MAN SHALL NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE, BUT ON EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.'"

It's not enough to live by words that "precede" or things that have gone by. We must have daily fresh words that "proceed" or emit right from the heart and mouth of God. This is the aim and design of this devotional- to have guidance from God into the heart of your current life situation.

Each devotion has a main scriptural thought as well as several supporting Bible verses to continue hearing from God all day long. This terse collection of daily devotions will be the inspiration, encouragement, and direction you need to go forward today, not simply looking back at what God has said, but what He is currently saying.

Through these devotions with scripture references and prayer prompts, you will be equipped to:

• Hear what God is saying on a daily basis.

• Walk in faith about your future and healing from past struggles.

• Enjoy the freedom and joy that come from feeding on the current thing that God is speaking.

• Be done with a life of striving to make everything perfect.

• Surrender your current struggles and undesirable circumstances into the hands of a sovereign God for His perfect will to be done.

• Be encouraged by fresh, consistent words from God.

• Receive instruction and wisdom from the LORD about how to proceed in your current life situation.

• Embrace the fullness and satisfaction that come from seeking God in a deeper and more intimate way.

• Discover that God's presence has not left you and that He cares for you holistically as a person (physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and relationally); holistically in time (past, present, and future); and holistically in circumstances (relationships, finances, family, career, and purpose).

• Relieve stress and tension that come from living a life dependent on your own performance. 

Words That Proceed will give you powerful insight about what to do when you don't know what to do and connect you to the heart, mind, and voice of the Living Word who speaks to us, not just in the past, but right now, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8).
