A LIFE OF DOMINION
s u n d a y 10
For whatsoever is born of God
overcometh the world: and this is the
victory that overcometh the world, even
our faith (1 John 5:4).
In the verse above, the Apostle John wasn’t
prophesying; he was affirming the life we have
in Christ; a life of dominion over satan, the world,
and its systems. The Christian is unconquerable; he’s
a victor on every count; he’s born into the glory-life,
and could never fail.
Read Jesus’ assertion about your impregnable and
invincible nature—your authority and dominion in Him:
“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). In Mark 16:18, He said you shall tread upon
serpents; and if you drink any deadly thing, it’ll have
no effect on you. This means you can’t be poisoned.
What a life!
He overcame the world and gave us the victory,
the power to subdue this world. That’s what John affirms
in our opening verse. The word, “overcometh”means
to have victory over, to subdue, conquer, and to
prevail over. You’ve subdued, tamed and conquered
the elements of this world; the circumstances of life;
therefore, walk in dominion over them.
The Word doesn’t say, “You’ll overcome if you
pray hard enough”; the only criterion is to be born of
God and you automatically have power over every
crisis, and dominion over circumstances. Distressing
situations may come from the enemy—the devil, but
be unruffled; in Christ you’ve already been made
victorious. 2 Corinthians 2:14 says, “Now thanks be
unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in
Never wonder or be baffled by the trials,
temptations or challenges that may come your way; in
the midst of them all, you’ll always win: “Ye are of God,
little children, and have overcome them: because
greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world”
(1 John 4:4). You have to come to this realization; train
and develop yourself in this consciousness.
I’m born of the Word; therefore, my origin is divine.
I’ve overcome the world and its failures, hatred,
corruption, decadence and limitations. I reign
victoriously over circumstances, because Christ is in
me; that’s my assurance of a life of ever-increasing
glory and eternal prosperity, in Jesus’ Name.
