SCRIPTURE: “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.” – Genesis 1:26.
God never intended (us) believers to live in defeat or subjugation. He destined us to rule. That is why He gave us kingdom authority or dominion rule. In Genesis 1:26 (today’s memory verse) and in Psalm 8:5-6, the word of God affirms that God gave man dominion over all the works of His hand, and placed all things under man’s feet. Dominion can be described as power, authority or control over something or someone. It was Adam’s birthright and pleasure. However, Adam sinned against God and lost his dominion. God in His mercy restored dominion to man through Christ Jesus. Colossians 2:15 says, “And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.”
Similarly, dominion refers to man’s rule and responsibility to bring creation to order. God fashioned us to share His own authority over His creation. We are His purpose partners and co-labourers. Dominion therefore is tied to responsibility.
Let us now examine what you need to do to walk in dominion. First, you should be born again and know who you are in Christ. You are a joint-heir with Christ and he has delegated His authority to you. You are occupying till He comes and all things are yours. Second, You must live in complete obedience. That is the key to deepening your relationship with Him to the level of intimacy. Third, you must be a word addict. You must study God’s word daily, meditate in it, memorise it and live by it daily. The word of God is, in fact, the believer’s sword of the Spirit and veritable weapon of spiritual warfare. In addition, you must be a prayer warrior. Pray in understanding; pray even more in the spirit and praise God continually. Finally, to walk in dominion, you must have faith in God.
When you fulfil the foregoing conditions, you will be fruitful, you will multiply, you will replenish the earth, subdue it and have dominion. This privilege and inheritance were bequeathed to you graciously by the Almighty God. If you are not enforcing dominion and exercising the authority God has given you, you need to pray. Arise, pray and begin to enforce your God-given dominion. You are created and saved to rule!
