FAMILY DOMINION, HOW POSSIBLE?
Happy new month! We thank God for the grace to see another month. That which God has for you and your family this great month, shall be practically delivered into your hands in Jesus' name!
This month, I shall be teaching on the possibility of Family Dominion. You may ask, "Is it possible to have dominion in my family?" It is possible! As a child of God, you are created in the image of God – to dominate. So, it is possible to have dominion in your family. It is my prayer that as you take advantage of this article and pay rapt attention to the Word of God coming to your direction, you shall continue to dominate in your family in Jesus' name!
There is so much good for us in our marriages, families, spouse's lives, children, businesses, finances, careers, etc; but, the Bible says: If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land (Isaiah 1:19). There is reward in obedience. It is the master key to dominion. Purpose in your heart to obey God and you will see His outstretched arm in the direction of your family, giving you all round dominion.
What is Dominion?
Dominion can be defined as being in charge, control, and in command. God's Word says in Genesis 1:26: Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over … upon the earth. As you are created for dominion, so also is your family. In the teaching series this month, I shall be showing you how you can achieve this in your family.
Isaiah 60:1 says: Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. God says, "Arise." It is a commandment from God. It does not depend on your feeling or ability. Arise from the previous failures and woes in your family. Shake your feet from the dust. As a family, put an instant stop to re-counting your losses in the past years. Arise in obedience. Rise up from within you and God shall strengthen you.
God's Word says: Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the Lord blessed him (Genesis 26:12). It was a time of famine, hardship, woes, and economic recession. The Word of God came to Isaac and he arose and took action. You can see the returns.
How do you arise and exercise dominion?
Spiritually: It takes light to shine, and light comes by the Word of God (Psalms 119:130). It is what you do with His Word in your family that will determine how much dominion your family will exercise.
Man, you are the head of the home. Settle down with God's Word and give meaningful direction to your household. Don't go about the affairs of your family, without understanding. Enough of foolishness! Your family must become an envy of everyone around you, this year.
Locate the direction for your family in the Word, and no devil can stop your family from exercising dominion. Arise, don't starve spiritually; both in your prayer life and in the study of the Word (2 Timothy 2:15). Until you arise, there can't be a lifting, which results is dominion.
Woman, arise from your downcast position (Micah 4:13). Don't let spiritual laziness destroy/rob you of what God has in plan for your life and family. Turn to the substance of the Word and stop chasing shadows. You are born to shine; don't die a shadow! Make God your focus, and His Word your priority!
Physically: Look ahead of you for a glorious family. The Lord is set to do a new thing (Isaiah 43:1). Destroy the spirit of heaviness that came as a result of lack of finances, which makes family dominion impossible in your family. Rather, begin to make plans for greater days ahead of your family, so as to enjoy dominion.
Root your plans in the Word of God, and take steps to accomplishing them. Don't just sit down; begin to see your plan succeed henceforth. As a family, make godly plans in your finances, careers, academics, relationships, and seal them with the Word of God. Your plans shall succeed, in Jesus' Name!
You need grace for obedience and total dedication to God, in order to enjoy family dominion. This grace is made available, by accepting Jesus as your Lord and personal Saviour. If you are ready to receive grace, please say this prayer of faith: Dear Lord, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me of my sins. Cleanse me with Your precious Blood. I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Now I know I am born again!
