REIGN ON EARTH
Tuesday 16 June 2015
“And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth”
God intends for us to reign here on earth. That is His original desire and purpose for us as heirs of salvation. God cannot lie. By law of first mention, in Genesis chapter 2, the bible tells us that God made man in His own image and likeness. In other words, we have the life of God, the Zoe type of life in us. So we ought to function like God. How does God function? He takes charge. He created the heavens and the earth and all that is in it. And when He saw no form and void on the earth. He spoke to it.
God is a good God and He gives good things to man. God showed us how to exercise dominion when what He created was void. He took charge by speaking into the situation. He didn’t just watch things go bad, He took charge. You don’t fold your hands and allow the devil run rough shod over you while you are busy calling on God instead of taking charge. You have no business calling on God when you are there. You are His representatives. You have the life and authority of God in you. So whenever you see the devil, you expel him. That is how you take charge.
God created the world through WORDS. He created the world by the spoken word. The things we see are created from things that do not appear. He upholds all things by the word of His power. If you remove the word of God, the world and everything visible will disintegrate. God’s word is so powerful that it can create and sustain. So He created everything by His word and crated man in His own image. Therefore, you are like God. I therefore challenge you to think like God, speak like God and walk like God. Take charge because you are in charge.
