TO THE BIBLE: Romans 5:17 AMP
“For if because of one man’s trespass (lapse, offense) death reigned through that one, much more surely will those who receive [God’s] overflowing grace (unmerited favor) and the free gift of righteousness [putting them into right standing with Himself] reign as kings in life through the one Man Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).”
Every Christian–and that includes you–is a king in this life, called to reign in righteousness. You were born to exercise dominion over satan and the circumstances of life! You’re not a victim, but a victor in Christ Jesus. John knew this about us and declared, “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4). The Greater One lives in you! He has imparted His nature of righteousness to you, and that’s what makes you like Him. That nature makes you think, see, and talk like Him. You’ve ascended; He’s brought you to His level.
Romans 5:17 (AMP) says, “…Much more surely will those who receive [God’s] overflowing grace (unmerited favor) and the free gift of righteousness [putting them into right standing with Himself] reign as kings in life through the one Man Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).” You’ve received grace to reign over circumstances and walk in dominion over and above satan and the elements of this world. So, no matter how dire your situation may seem, it doesn’t change your status, because there’s no disadvantage for the child of God. There’s grace on your life. Recognise it.
Someone who isn’t born again may say, “I’m in such a deep mess, and there’s no way out for me”; but not you! You don’t get trapped! You always have a way out, because you’re a king! So, reign through your proclamation of the Word! Whatever comes against you in life, take charge and reign over it through your faith-filled declarations.
As the Lord reigns on high and is clothed with majesty, so do I reign in this life in righteousness! The Lord has clothed and girded me with strength! Indeed, the words of my mouth are firmly established! I walk in perpetual victory, manifesting the glory of God in every place, by the ability of the Spirit! Hallelujah!
