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, over the cattle and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. So God made man in His own image … male and female He created them. Then God blessed them and God said to them , ‘Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves on the earth. And God said, ‘See, I have given you … …. GENESIS 1 : 26 – 30
NOW, MEDITATE ON THESE THINGS ….
All that God made is still good; and that includes you! God is not barren … that is why in every emptiness, He is a fruitful God There is no ‘want’ in and with Him.. WANT … of any sort, is not the language of God’s Kingdom!! God never desires it for He is not glorified in our life of want.
He has made you in this His ‘FRUITFULNESS’ image and likeness that there should be neither want nor barrenness in &/or around you; but that you should bear fruit and that your fruit should remain! This is the awesome work He did for you and He set its seal on Jesus as the Living Word What has He not given you? He called you into glory and virtue to be a partaker of the divine nature … so manifest, operate and shine in it! He has made you His representative on earth … so represent Him very well.
He has given you ALL that pertains to life and godliness so radiate & reflect Him correctly! Through the incorruptible seed of His word, He has begotten you to an incorruptible and undefiled inheritance which does not fade away, reserved in heaven … JUST FOR YOU!
This is called DOMINION! Let this His Dominion power be seen in you … Keep it through faith and on this base: that ‘God condemns fear’! Fear is not of Him. He does not & cannot give it. The lazy man is fearful & says “There’s a lion on the road! A fierce lion is in the streets!” He is dominated; and does not go out! . But God, from the beginning, blessed you, saying “Be fruitful…fill the earth, subdue it, have dominion over… everything that moves (about) on the earth” – and that includes Satan and all his COHORTS, his manipulations and projections.
If the lion intimidates the rest of the animal kingdom, how much more should you, heir and joint-heir not put ALL (not some or certain) things under your feet and steadfastly resist the roaring lion? And If God in His Word says : “You shall bruise his head”, … and Jesus has given you “the authority” to do so … then bruise his head! If Jesus has declared that “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Him … and that as the Father sent Him, so He, Jesus is sending us into the world,” then ‘GO’ for Him and SPEAK in boldness, authority & dominion -, ministering life, healing & health as the “…able minister of the new covenant, whose sufficiency is of God, who is not of the letter, but of the Spirit which gives life! .I see your emergence .. IN DOMINION!
PERSONAL CONFESSION: Your hands O Lord have made & fashioned me in dominion & for dominion. I emerge to walk in it. Your mercies that go with walking in dominion will dominate my life, not fear; not iniquity!
