Created to Dominate

“Then 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 birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”” (Genesis 1:26)

God created us to dominate over the other species and elements on this planet. We are the salt of the earth; the light of the world, a city set on a hill that cannot be hidden. (Matthew 5:13-14) Salt helps to preserve food and we act in this manner to preserve the earth. Light draws attention and separates the darkness. There are people who are desperate to see our light in a dark world. So we shine our light through our example of love and showing the world who God is.

As children of God, we are described by God as head and not tail, above and not beneath, when we keep the commandments of God. (Deuteronomy 28:13) We are the righteous of God in Christ Jesus. (2 Corinthians 2:21)

Head and not tail means that we are expected to stand out wherever we go in order to advance the kingdom of God. Being the righteousness of God sets us in right standing with God which frees us from a sin conscience. This sets us free from guilt and shame which brings about insecurities and a sense of inferiority. Living with this sense of dominance builds our confidence in knowing that the greater one in us, is greater than he that is in the world.

It’s not in our own strength but by the spirit of the Lord that lives in us. So we can be assured that we are strong in Jesus Christ. Mighty through God to pull down strongholds and powerful enough to destroy the powers of darkness. No weapon or scheme formed against us is allowed to prosper when we know exactly who we are. When we remain seated with Christ Jesus, far above principalities and powers. Your assignment is to dominate in the marketplace, in whatever field or sector that God has assigned you to as a kingdom ambassador.

A.P.-Y.
