TO THE BIBLE: Romans 5:17 GNB
“It is true that through the sin of one man death began to rule because of that one man. But how much greater is the result of what was done by the one man, Jesus Christ! All who receive God’s abundant grace and are freely put right with him will rule in life through Christ.”
Our opening verse refers to God’s people that are operating from the mountaintop, from the realm of limitless possibilities and perpetual victories. Because they’ve taken advantage of God’s grace, they’re in control and in charge! They exercise dominion over circumstances, and situations. They live a different kind of life—the transcendent life.
This was what Paul meant when he told Timothy, “…be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus” (2 Timothy 2:1). That means, “Take advantage of the grace.” Receive grace and reign! Take as much of it as you require for a life of reigning; rule and be in charge by grace.
You’re not going to reign in heaven, because there’s nothing to reign over in heaven. You’re to reign as a king in this world; you’re to function with authority in the earth. God has made you superior to Satan, his demons, sickness, disease and infirmity. You’re seated together with Christ, far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come (Ephesians 1:21). Therefore, rule over circumstances; exercise dominion over fear, death, hell, lack, poverty, and death! Express and manifest the glory of God everywhere; that’s your calling; that’s your life. You’re the seed of Abraham, and the grace of God puts you ahead and over your peers, giving you boldness, courage and confidence to be in charge and in control.
Go Deeper: 2 Timothy 2:1; Revelation 5:10
I’m highly favoured of God, I’m reigning in life as a king, exercising dominion over circumstances! I express and manifest the glory and righteousness of God today. I’m ruling and reigning in Jesus’ Name. Amen!
