Memorize: Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you Luke 10:19
Devotional Reading: Titus 2:1-15
As a believer, once you are regenerated in Christ Jesus, you carry dominion power. The victory on the cross has fully absolves you of defeat. This means you should go through life’s battles as a conqueror not a victim. Luke 10:19 tells us that Christ has given us power to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy, furthermore, it says and nothing shall by any means hurt you, this includes principalities, spiritual wickedness in high places and every form of demonic forces, you have power over them. This is amazing assurance that your victory is guaranteed. I like you to know that you have been empowered to have dominion over satanic forces, when you are in Christ Jesus.
However, it is still possible to remain under Santa’s manipulation due to lack of knowledge or refusal to exercise one’s authority. In Genesis 1:26-27 we learnt that God created man to dominate but Adam lost this to Satan when he chose to live without God’s control. Because God loves us, He restored us back to his dominion power through his son Jesus Christ. When the triune Godhead resides in you, you become an embodiment of power and authority. At this point, signs and wonders begin to freely flow from the power base within you Mark 16:17-18
God expect you to exercise His power in your life over sin, over principalities and power, over the devil and his cohorts, over situations, circumstances and challenges that confront you. One of the effective ways to exercise your dominance is on your knees. In Daniel 6:10 He was faced with death, he knelt down and prayed and power was released to frustrate the plans of his enemies. When you go on your knees before God, you stand tall among men. On your knees, you can rename problems or challenges that has ridicule you. You cannot make any positive effective change if all you do is dash in and out of God’s presence. You need to spend quality time praying, and even combine it with fasting, it works.
Another way to have power over principalities is to live a Holy life not in words but in actual deed as a lifestyle. Holiness is a strong weapon against principalities & demonic powers. Daniel was found faultless at his time. In Daniel 6:4. If you want to have dominion in this world, live soberly, righteously and godly in your lifetime. Find out what God says about you, what those around you say about you and compare with what you say about yourself. 2 Cor. 13:5
I pray for you that from today, principalities & spiritual wickedness will no longer harass or toment you, you will rule and reign in the midst of your enemies in Jesus name. Everything in your life causing you pain, I terminate them today, from now henceforth you will never weep again in Jesus name Amen.
Prayer: O Lord, help me live and reign under the influence of your power and dominion in Jesus name.
Key Dose: Obedience to the word of God activates power and dominion in the life of man.
