[DEVO] In the Image of God by @feyily

Genesis 1:26-28
So God said, ‘Let us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.
So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
Then God blessed them, and God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.’

We all know that we are created in the likeness of God; but we do not operate fully in this knowledge. We are not God but we are like God, our being like God bestowed on us dominion over all other creatures created by God and over all the situations we may find ourselves.

God gave us lordship over the earth; it’s amazing how today mere things have dominion over us.

God has given us total charge of our time here in the world, we cannot fold our hands and let things just happen to us and then say it is the will of God. Some of our prayers are unanswered because the things we ask God are things he has given us power over, all we need do is take authority over them and they will be ours.

Matthew 18:18 says ‘Truly, I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

God has given us dominion, and we must exercise it correctly, according to God’s word.

Go and have dominion this week! Amen.

Lord, help me to take my rightful place in you in Jesus Name, Father, give unto me victory over all the evil powers dominating my life in Jesus Name and Lord, give to me understanding of you and make yourself plain unto me in Jesus Name.
