“For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)” Romans 5:17
When Adam failed in the garden of Eden, he lost his dominion giving to him in Genesis 1:28, “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” When the tempter tempted Jesus, he reaffirmed this. “And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.” (Luke 4:5-6). He took charge when the first Adam lost it but that changed when the second Adam (who is Jesus Christ) paid the price. When He died, He went to hell and took over the world from the enemy such that now at “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;” (Philippians 2:10). Then He handed over the authority to us. “”Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. ” (Luke 10:19). The enemy is not in charge anymore. We are! Hallelujah!
The new creation is not a negotiator. We take over and take charge! Psalms 24:1 says, “The earth is the LORD’, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.” Wherever you are, take charge! Let the character and acts of Jesus be seen through you. Don’t accept second place. Don’t accept mediocrity and obscurity. No! In the spirit realm, take charge through daily warfare and intercessions. In the physical realm, get involved. If you have flair for politics, go there and take charge. If yours is fashion, take charge there. If it is farming, dominate that area. Discover your area and enforce your dominion. Don’t let the children of darkness overrun everywhere and determine what others do. No! The world is yours. Take charge for Jesus!
Luke 4:1-12, Acts 17
SAY THIS PRAYER
Father, I thank You for the grace that has brought salvation into my life. Open my eyes to see my area of influence as I begin to take charge in Jesus name.
Every obstacle to your total dominion of your environment and your field of influence, I command them to crumble now in Jesus name. Enjoy sweat-less dominion in Jesus name!
One night, I wanted to leave my house but I was led to apply the ‘oil of gladness’ on myself before leaving. I did. On my way, two men passed me on a bike and splashed water on me. I didn’t know they were robbers. As I walked on, I met a lady crying who said she had just been robbed by the men on bike. I was alone and with valuables but God covered their eyes. Praise God!
You are next in line for a testimony!
