. . . Those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. (Rom. 5:17 NKJ)
You are born of God to reign in life. When you were born naturally by your earthly mother, you were born into the world to be a slave of sin and Satan’s rule. The day you were born again, into the kingdom of God, you were born to reign in life.
Ever wondered what it means to reign in life? Or what God means when He says we are kings and priests unto Him? The fundamental word in understand reigning is the word control. Reigning in life means having the authority to control the events in your life.
Can I really have control over the circumstances of my life? Yes, that is essentially what the kingdom of God is all about. It is establishing God’s rule over the events in life.
The world does not look like God because God is not yet King over the world. The world looks like Satan, not God. The issues of life are ruling and oppressing people. There are many people who find themselves in health conditions that leave them totally helpless. Others face family issues that they have accepted because “there is nothing I can do about it.”
The kingdom of God has come so that you can do something about it. God wants you to reign in life and not be a victim of the situations you find yourself in. Even if you find yourself in a mess that someone else’s weaknesses put you in, your destiny is not tied to their mistakes.
God wants you to reign in life. The nature you carry, that of a son of God, forbids any defeat. You were born to reign.
How do we practically reign in life? See 1 John 5:4.
APPLY THE WORD
Is something reigning over you? Break its rule and reign over it! How? Revelation and faith!
Thank the Lord for bringing us into His kingdom here and now. Pray that you will reign over all the circumstances of your life.
