Hindrances to living in dominion


Hindrances to living in dominion

Gal.4:7 says, Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

So what are the things that can hinder us, disturb us from being a son?

God’s purpose for man is for him to live a life of dominion. God wants man to be in charge. God commanded man to live a life of dominion at the beginning, but when man fell, he lost the power to live in dominion.

This power to live a life of dominion was restored back to man when Jesus died in man’s place on the cross, buried, and resurrected. The Lord Jesus Christ has paid the price and paved the way for us to dominate.

The question now is, why are believers not dominating?

Despite the sacrifice of Jesus many of us are still being oppressed, harassed and not occupying our place in destiny.

We shall be looking at some of the hindrances to dominion.

We will look at some things that are actually hindering us from dominating.

Here are some few reasons.

  • Disobedience

This is to refuse to comply with or follow the laid down rules. As citizens of the heavenly kingdom we are to enforce the will of God on earth. (Philippians 3:20).

God set the rules, patterns or standards, we are to follow them. If we will not follow His rules by disobeying them, how do we expect Him to give us dominion? It is God who sets up kings and remove kings.

Just like you cannot keep disrespecting your boss in the office and expect a promotion, you cannot live against God’s word and be empowered to live in dominion. Deuteronomy 28:1. Obedience is a vital key to living a dominion life. 2 Corinthians10:6.

This scripture is saying; fulfill your obedience to God and get uncontestable dominion.

  • Lack of knowledge

Hosea 4:6. Knowledge is very vital if we want to live a life of dominion. When the use of a thing is not known, abuse is inevitable. It is the lack of knowledge that will make a prince walk on foot while the servant is riding on a horse.

Knowledge is needed for us to know those things that have been freely given to us in Christ Jesus. If a child does not know he is an heir to a great property, other person will take over it.

True knowledge comes from consistence studying and meditation of the word of God. Galatians 4:1-7

  • Lack of violence

Violence is crucial in the school of dominion. For us to rule, we must be violent. How do you expect to rule over violent spirits, violent situations, violent adversaries, if you are not violent (Matthew 11:12).

Even the Bible said right from the day of John the Baptist, the kingdom of God suffereth violence and the violent shall take it by force.

We must be violent in the place of prayer and lawful physical action birthed by faith. As a believer, we are to dominate everywhere; in politics, business, academics, in our offices, on that contract, in our marriages, etc.

We have examples of people that dominated even in strange places; like Mordecai, Daniel, Joseph, etc. It is your right as believer in Christ Jesus to dominate. From today receive the grace for spiritual violence and go dominate in Jesus name.

  • Fear

Many of us are where we are because we are afraid to take a bold step; in ministries, politics, business, academics, careers and the likes. Israel was afraid of the giant in the land, and they wasted good forty years. Fear is highly detestable in this kingdom. Revelations 21:8

Among many others are unbelieve.

  • Sin

Judah lost his signet, scepter to immorality, just like many children of God are losing their authority to sin. Genesis 38:7-18, Genesis 49:10. Sin is deadly; it cripples and makes people impotent spiritually.

For a child of God to live in dominion, he must have a right standing with God. His garment must always be white. Ecclesiastes 9:8. You can only exercise your dominion when your obedience to God is complete. 2 Corinthians 10:6

In conclusion, God has pronounced His blessings on His children; these blessings include living in dominion.

It is our responsibility to do the needful and begin to enjoy what God had freely given to us.

I pray the Lord will help us to dominate in every aspect of our life.

As that will be all for today.

I pray the Lord will give us deep meaning of His word in Jesus name.

Gateway to Financial Dominion


Many are loyal but few are aware, many are sincere but few are sensitive. We must all be sensitive that financial prosperity is the dignity of Christianity. The gospel is easily preached when we have results to show ” For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that through his poverty might be be rich.” 2.Cor.8:9.

We must also remain sensitive that God is happy when we are rich because He takes pleasure in the our prosperity. PS.35:27. “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” 3.Jn.1:3. Therefore, you are a big disappointment to God if you choose to be poor.

We must also embraced the truth that there is no shortcut at being rich. Get this straight: You can be rich and be cursed but you can never be blessed and not be wealthy. “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.” PS.1:1-3.

In the light of the above scripture, you can locate your financial prosperity seed from there. For every blessing in the kingdom, there is/are always condition/conditions to be met. These are the conditions spelt out in this scripture:

  • Never walk in the counsel or gathering of the ungodly
  • Never stand in the way of the sinners
  • Never sit in seat of the scornful
  • Be delighted in the law of the lord – you are obeying commands, you are happy (delightful obedience).
  • Meditate upon the word of God day and night.

These are you financial prosperity seeds. You can’t expect the harvest of a maize without planting a corn. It is to everyman according to his work. Rev.22:12.

There are so many businessmen whom remember God only on Sundays. Instead of studying and meditating God’s word, they are busy reading newspapers and checking the stock exchange’s barometer.

This is the cause of business failure. A failed business is as a result of your lacks of disobedience and entrance into the covenant of seedtime and harvest. Gen.8:22, Deu.8:18. Your business is suffering from non-thithing disease. Do you pay your corporate thithe? You are an armed robber, this may seems unfair but that what the scripture says“Will a man rob God? Yet have robbed me. But ye say, wherein have we robbed me. But  Ye say wherein have we robbed thee? In thites and offerings. Ye  are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even the whole nation” Mal.3:8-9.

Never take God for granted, you will be grounded when you take God for granted. He mean everything He says. Your cry and tears – even murmurings and complains – do not move God. It is your obedience that moved God. Deu28:1-3, James1:22, Jos.1:8.

Complains will further complicate your matters, murmurings will further mess up your situations. “Do all things without murmurings and disputings.” Phil.2:14.
