“For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)” Romans 5:17 (KJV)
Have you ever felt powerless to sin? Whatever your mouth wanted to say, you said it? Whatever your body wanted to do, you did it? Wherever your feet wanted to go, you went? So many Christians are allowing themselves to be reigned over instead of reigning in life as God purposed. Jesus paid the ultimate price so that you can reign in life by His grace and power! As a daughter of God, you have the power to tell your body, “No, I’m not going there”, “No, I’m not going to say that”, “No, I’m not going to behave that way”. You have the power through Christ to dictate to yourself what you will and will not do and your body must line up. The gift of reigning in life is God’s gift to you. You making the choice to reign is your gift to Him!
Prayer: Father God, thank You for helping me understand more fully what it means to reign in life. I make a decision today to dominate over the impulses of my flesh through Your grace and power. I declare I reign in life! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
A sincere thank you to our Devotional Writers.
