TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
Are you tired? Worn down? Are you discouraged by the battles you face? Stop facing them alone! You were never meant to fight without Me, or without My power. Let Me be your God, not only in this battle, but in every one of them. Give Me dominion so I can make things right.
WHO HAS DOMINION?
You can’t bring the Kingdom of God into the dark places of your life if you’re not a subject of the Kingdom. If you are a subject of the Kingdom, that means you’re willing to do whatever the King tells you. You subject yourself to the King.
There needs to come a time in all of our lives when we understand that we are not God. This is a life-changing thing to recognize. Jesus Christ is God and we need to be subject to Him as King. Why? Because it is the Father’s good pleasure to give you His kingdom.
The kingdom is where the King has dominion. That’s where things are finally right. If you’ve got the kingdom in your marriage, in your finances, and in your relationship with your kids, Jesus rules and reigns there. And, things are wonderful.
So whenever we get the idea of the majestic side of God, we start coming into alignment. Alignment creates breakthrough. Alignment makes you an overcomer. Alignment brings you into abundance. Alignment is being subject to the Majesty of Christ. It’s the power of constant subjection to Christ.
I’m not an owner of anything. I’m a steward of everything. I know that I am going to have to give my entire life back to Him someday. He’s going to say, “Troy, how did you bring me into your marriage? What about your relationships? Your work? Your finances? How did you let Me have dominion over those things?”
When you begin to do that – give Jesus dominion over each part of your life – you begin to get into perfect alignment. Alignment for assignment. What is your assignment in this life? Pretty simple: it’s to bring Jesus into everything you do and every relationship you have, so He can rule and reign.
“The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in the field, which a man found and hid again; and from joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.” – Matthew 13:44
