Living In Dominion

Psalm 8:4-6

You are created to exercise dominion; over all the works of God’s hand. You are to rule it all, govern it all, and be the head of it all. So, God created you with that intent and for that purpose.

Now beyond fruitfulness, part of the first mandates of God to mankind is to subdue and have dominion over all creatures He has made. To dominate is to be in charge or to take control. If God did not want you to take charge, He would not have mandated you to dominate. Bible says, in Hebrews 2:6-8  But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man that thou visitest him? Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands: Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him. So you are not redeemed to be pitied but to be envied by the world.

However, the devil raises several oppositions to deny you access to your glorious destiny in Christ; hence, as great as your destiny are, so are the oppositions against them. The only way to deal with this adversary is to take command of the outcome of your life. You must understand that God does not only want you to have spiritual turnaround but also to be physically, mentally, psychologically, financially and emotionally sound. Therefore, you must know how to deal with the adversary or your colourful destiny may remain shut. You must understand that you have authority, but you cannot exercise it without being under the superior authority of the One that gives all things. That means, as believers, we have authority in Christ, but to command authority we must subject and submit ourselves to the Source, which is God. Also, as heirs of the Kingdom of God, we are redeemed to be kings and to reign on the earth. Remember, that you are created to exercise dominion, over your oppressors and tormentors, and to subdue under your feet those who had earlier taken you captive.


  1. Luke 10:19 Listen! I have given you authority, so that you can walk on snakes and scorpions and overcome all the power of the Enemy, and nothing will hurt you.
