In Genesis 1:26 and 28 God told man to have dominion over everything. Not only is this our God given authority but God also wanted mankind to rule and frame his world using the same method God used. Hebrews 11:3 says, ‘by faith the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible”. It is imperative that we operate through the principles of faith in order to dominate over or even frame our circumstances. The way God dominated and exercised faith was by the use of His mouth. “And God said, let there be….and God said let there be….and God said let there be, and it was so”. God spoke this world into existence, so are we commissioned to call things that do not exist as though they did.
By the proper application of faith, that is, knowing you have what you say, believing you receive when you pray, you will begin dominating over this life. Jesus spoke to trees. He calmed raging seas and stilled the stormy weather. He raised the dead and healed all manner of sicknesses. He demonstrated the ability to dominate. There are gifts of the Spirit that enable believers to perform mighty exploits, but there is also faith. Through faith we experience the authority to trample upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt us (Luke 10:19). Through faith we can decree a thing and it will be established for us and the light of God’s favor shall shine on our ways (Job 22:28).
Through this powerful measure of faith that has been dealt to us, we can call for the rain over our crops and can command the rain to cease when we’ve had enough. We can speak to internal organs and command them to synchronize according to God’s divine design. We can dominate over everything that was created. Our responsibility here is to tend God’s creation. The word is in our mouth and in our hearts, we must unleash it. This is how we dominate.
Right now I open my mouth and declare that my home is protected and all of my appliances are anointed to work for the lengthiest duration. My transportation is equipped to transport my family and I without any major mechanical failures. I take authority over the atmosphere in my home regarding my marriage and children. I declare that we experience the peace that surpasses all understanding and we have a joy that is inexpressible and full of glory. I declare that my family and I have the blessing and favor of Abraham upon us and we have an abundance of surplus of finances all the days of our lives. I have the right answers to every question, the right solution to every challenge and the right directions at every crossroad. I have what I say, in Jesus’ name. Dominate!
