“Then 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.”
Genesis 1:26 NKJV
Dominion [ duh-min-yuh n] noun
the power or right of governing and controlling; sovereign authority.
One of my favorite songs lately has been “Everything We Need” by Kanye West, Ty Dolla $ign, and Ant Clemons.
From the beginning of time, before we were a thought or an idea, God already know everything He was going to give us. We would look like Him, sound like Him, and have power like Him because of it. When creation looks at us, His idea was that they would always see Him and submit.
So why is it that when we’re dealing with heartbreak, pain, and rejection, we allow it to have power over us? For weeks, months, and years at that.
It’s a new year. A new decade. We can no longer walk around with our heads down and our eyes low.
Where has sulking got you? When was the last time that being bitter worked for you? How long will you allow that pain to stop you from being all that God created you to be? How much longer will you use your pain as a crutch to be someone you’re not?
You have POWER girl! Real, true, authentic, everlasting power.
It’s time to take our lives back. It’s time for us to walk in the power we’ve been given. It’s time to walk in the likeness of our Father.
Acknowledge your brokenness. Heal. Hold your head up.
You were born to do it.
