Genesis 1:26 says "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.” God with this statement put man in charge and gave him the authority to dominate his world therefore no element of creation is meant to have control over man especially one who is spirit filled. The day you accepted Jesus into your life, you entered into a new level of authority. Welcome to August 2018: your month of Enduring Dominion. You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet, (Psalms 8:6). All things must answer to you and may you have complete and unquestionable authority over every issue of life this month and beyond in Jesus name. You are undefeatable in Jesus name!
According to the dictionary, dominion means controlling power or influence over others, the right to govern or rule or determine; it also means to have the edge, advantage or the upper hand therefore what it means to have dominion is to have the right to determine the outcome of things; you were created according to God’s original intention to have dominion in all ramification be it air, land, or sea and all creatures therein. God putting everything under your feet means He has given you unquestionable authority therefore no circumstance is meant to be beyond your control rather they are meant to answer to you! 1 John 5:4...'whatever is born of God overcometh the world' and since Jesus is the Lion of the tribe of Judah....you as a believer have the nature of a lion! To have dominion as mentioned above is to have the upper hand, to have the edge. Lions are born to exercise dominion in the jungle that probably explains the reason why the devil parades itself like a roaring lion. Don’t worry, the least the devil can do is to act 'like' as he is just an imitation of the original… The lion of the tribe of Judah!!!!Beloved you must realise that being a child of God gives you the upper hand; nothing should overwhelm you. As a child of the Lion of the tribe of Judah, you were created to take charge at all times. You hardly ever see a lion walking about with it's head bowed, lions don’t bow to anyone rather they enter the scene and everything bow to them! May you continue to operate and walk in dominion for the rest of your life in Jesus name.
In order to make sure you have enduring dominion, the one that stands the test of time; you must know what the word of God says concerning you only then can you know your rights and privileges as a child of God. It is this knowledge that will give you the boldness to take charge in prevailing situations. From the viewpoint of a believer failure to be equipped with information can prove fatal as it can lead to unnecessary suffering and sorrow (Dan.11:32). Surround yourself with believers who will challenge your faith, remember the story of the eagle who didn’t know it was created to fly having being raised among chickens until it came in contact with another eagle only then did it realise it was created not only to fly but to soar! (Prov.13:20). Also spend time talking to God and let Him talk back to you in the place of prayer. Don’t forget to utilise the name of Jesus which is also a symbol of your dominion as a Christian, for the bible tells us that at the mention of the name of Jesus everything becomes answerable to you. Whatever, whoever or wherever they may be, you are the one in charge. “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father (Phil.2:10-11). May you continue to have dominion over all things in Jesus name!
