..how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ! — Romans 5:17
The life we have been gifted with, is within our sphere of authority. Challenging situations we face in our life is subject to our dominion. We are called to rule and enforce authority over the domain of our life. We also have an enemy who will come against us and challenge our authority over our domain.
God has a unique way for us to rule and keep our life under submission. He does not want us to be in a struggle to fight the enemy on equal ground. The devil is no match for the authority of Christ. We are to be seated on the throne of Christ and rule from there. When we rest on the throne of Christ and rule with Him, we are, in reality allowing Him to rule in and through us. When we rule from His throne, He rules. He can rule in our domain only when we remain seated on His throne and abide in Him and rest in Him. As long as we are seated, His authority is in force.
When His children are ignorant of their identity and their position in Christ, the Kingdom suffers. Every time we panic looking at a situation and get off the throne and strive to fight it, we lose our perspective and authority. We have no power in our self to handle the situations the enemy will bring, we are powerful only when we remain on the throne with Christ and rule with His Authority and Power.
Jesus by enduring the cross and conquering Death has established a throne worthy for the Son. He is the only one worthy to be seated on that throne but He has willingly called us into that position of Sonship with Him to enjoy His privileges as a Son of God. We rule by Him and in turn He rules in us and the Kingdom of God grows.
God has established the throne of His Son in Zion (Psalm 2:6). His rulership extends out from Zion and its domain is expanding one person at a time. As we yield to Him and sit with Him on the throne and rule, He rules and His Kingdom grows. He wants His children to take their position of authority. Every victory we take is a victory for Christ. Every mountain we conquer is a conquest for Christ. Not the victories we win by our own ability, but the ones we win by abiding on the throne of Christ and allowing His authority to flow. They are our inheritance in Christ.
Be seated on the throne with Christ and abide in Him and let Him rule in our life. Let His authority flow through us and have dominion over our life. We are a joint-heir with Him (Romans 8:17). Let us become one with Him and have the mind of Christ and have access to His Wisdom. He reveals the mysteries of His Kingdom only to His children by the Spirit (1 Corinthians 2:10)
Take your seat on His throne and rule by His Authority and Power and keep the enemy of your life in submission.
