Do you sometimes feel that you’re just a pawn in the Chess Game of Life? Well, that’s not God’s will for us. We have a God-given mandate to take dominion over the earth and bring it into subjection to God’s Word.
Genesis 1:26 (KJV) 26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
God gave Adam the dominion mandate and that’s how he was to rule the earth – by speaking God’s Word. But satan came along and when Adam committed high treason, he lost his ability to rule supernaturally and was left to rule via his five physical senses and things were a mess!
But Jesus! Yes, Jesus not only won back our dominion mandate but reinstated us into right relationship and fellowship with our Father God!
Jesus tells us in John 14 that we can do the same works He did and whatever we ask the Father in His name, God will give it to us! Not only that, we now have legal authority over the devil and all his evil, conniving, deceitful ways.
We no longer have to resign ourselves to being satan’s pawns. Jesus overcame him and now we’re overcomers by faith in what Jesus did! Praise the Lord of glory!
So, pick yourself up and start dominating your circumstances and bring glory to the Name of Jesus!
