As we strive to live to the fullest and attain our full potential, we have to realize that no shortcuts are available. One of the major hindrances to attaining the heights God desires for us is by having shortcuts. Brethren, for us to dominate, we have to live right… no shortcuts.
Most people have sorted to vices that seem better since they bring about their desired outcomes. Any success attained through unjust means won’t last. Therefore, for us to attain dominion in our spiritual, economic and social lives we MUST live right.
Living right means that you conform to the divine will of God in purpose, thought and actions. This way, you live a righteous life – a life of right doing.
Are you able to stand before God without any sense of guilt or shame?
Dominion means that you stand out. You enjoy abundance in every aspect of life. When one has dominion, nothing shakes him off.
Why live right? Why be righteous? Can’t we attain dominion through other ways?
Isaiah 32:17 – “And the effect of righteousness will be peace (internal and external)…”
I would like us to understand this very clearly. Dominion begins with first having peace within you and the surrounding. Without peace, dominion becomes useless. Living right brings about the peace that will help us in attain dominion in every aspect.
When we live right and attain peace as individuals, the whole nation will have peace and in the long run, we will have dominion. No dominion will be attained in absence of peace.
Let’s not be like the Pharisees who appeared to be righteous unto men but were full of hypocrisy and iniquity within. All that God wants is for us to emulate him. In any situation you are in, when you are required to act or give a response, ask yourself, “What would Jesus do?”
Matthew 5:6 – “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness for they shall be filled.” (NIV)
When righteousness becomes the center of everything, abundance is assured. God blesses everyone who lives in accordance to what He says. A hunger for righteousness means that your heart, mind and soul are also right with God.
Job was a man who was right before God and as a result, he was the greatest of all the men of the east. Even after Satan took away everything he had, God still restored the dominion he had over the east. Despite what we go through, when we live right, God ensures that dominion is within our households.
The people of Sodom and Gomorrah went astray and did things which were not right before God. They were destroyed at last.
When we seek to do what is right before God, we attain dominion in every aspect of our lives.
