Today’s devotion is from Genesis 1:26, 28
Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
[“Prosper! Reproduce! Fill Earth! Take charge!” – The message Bible]
We are God’s children, we are like God and made in His image. God made us to rule, to take dominion, to be in charge and to dominate, not to be dominated.
God did not make us to be passive and to float down the river like a dead fish, He gave us strength, power, authority and ability to SUBDUE, dominate and overpower unscriptural circumstances.
Don’t just sit there and sing, “Que sera, sera, whatever will be, will be, the future's not ours to see, Que sera, sera.” Assess your life, measure it up against the Word, and then access grace and use every ounce of the ability of Jesus in you, every ounce of your supernatural authority, strength and innovativeness in Christ, and take charge!
I know this is a strong word, but family… If we do not take charge and take dominion authority, the devil, people and circumstances will dominate us and steal everything that God has given us!
Jesus has delivered me from sickness, poverty, stress and bondage, so there is no way that I am going to stand by and watch the devil steal what God has given me!
I will prosper and be in health, even as my soul prospers, I will live in peace and joy, I will live the blessed life, I will be blessed in my coming in and going out, I am the head, and not the tail, it is my inheritance as a child of God, and no devil is going to steal it, in Jesus Name!
We have what we tolerate.
So many believers tolerate strife, lack, depression, fear, sickness and terrible circumstances… They allow the devil to come in and steal, and then blame it on God.
God the Father is in charge over the universe, Jesus our Lord and Savior made the universe, the Holy Spirit is the One Who holds all things together in the whole universe, every angel in Heaven is there to carry out God’s will in the whole universe, and we are God’s children and have been given His dominion authority to rule and reign on earth in His Name, so take charge, in Jesus Name!
