Really – who doesn’t want to be successful and victorious in every area of life? Every normal person wants to succeed. It’s in our DNA. So, let’s delve into this topic and see what God has to say.
Let me start by asking a simple question: why does gravity work? I’m not talking about the science behind it just simply why it works. It works because gravity is a law and laws work every time. If you drop a rock out of the second story of your house, it will fall to the ground, not rise upward to the roof. Why? Because gravity is a law and it works every time, whether or not you believe it.
It’s the same with electricity. It’s a law and it works every time whether or not you believe it. I think I’ve made my point about gravity and electricity but the main thing I want you to see is that these natural laws work every time, regardless of what you believe or don’t believe about them. That’s how God ordained them to work. In fact, electricity was here on earth at the time of Adam and Eve but of no use to them because they didn’t know how to harness it, nor did they know the laws that governed it.
And, so it is with spiritual laws. They’re just as real as physical, natural laws, but not as obvious because you can’t see them in the natural realm. What you see are the results they produce.
Having said all that, let’s discuss God’s spiritual laws for victory and success. Laws, scientifically and spiritually speaking, work every time. That’s why they’re called laws. You can depend on them to work exactly as they should. This is an important concept to grasp because if it weren’t so, then you would never know if gravity or electricity would always work for you.
Having established that, let’s move on to spiritual laws. All of God’s Word and promises are spiritual and therefore, fall under the topic of spiritual law. We can also conclude that if they, the promises of God, are laws, then we can depend on them to work every time. Wow, that’s huge, but true nonetheless! Praise the Lord of Glory for His unspeakable Word to us!
Let’s look at some of the laws that God has established in the earth. I’ll just give an introduction and then take it up in another blog, otherwise, this blog will go on and on and on, not finding a good place to end.
Here are some laws in God’s Word:
1 – The Law of Love – called the Royal Law
James 2:8 (KJV) 8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:
2 – The Law of Faith
Romans 3:27 (KJV) 27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.
3 – The Law of Seed, Time, and Harvest
Genesis 8:22 (KJV) 22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
4 – The Law of Sowing and Reaping – similar to #3 but slightly different
Galatians 6:7 (KJV) 7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
5 – The Law of Spiritual Authority
Matthew 28:18-19 (KJV) 18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
The Word power here is exousia which means authority.
6 – The Law of Dominion
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.
These are a few of the laws God has given us. They all work together and overlap at times. We’ll discuss them in more depth in subsequent blogs.
