You Rule On His Behalf
The LORD will send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thy enemies (Psalm 110:2).
Talking about the Lord Jesus, the Bible says, “…he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet” (1 Corinthians 15:25). This isn’t about Him reigning in heaven, but in the earth. Legally, God has put all things under His feet. Ephesians 1:22 says, “And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church.” So, Jesus is the head over all things.
Isaiah 9:6 says, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder….” Notice, it doesn’t say the government shall be upon His head, but upon His shoulder. Jesus is the head; the government is upon His shoulder, that is, His body—the Church. Therefore, when the Psalmist declared, “The LORD will let your power reach out from Zion, and you will rule over your enemies” (Psalm 110:2 CEV), it’s through the Church—His body that He rules. He rules through us.
As a member of the body of Christ, you rule on His behalf. Even if you thought you were the smallest toe in the feet, you’re still above all things, because you’re seated with Christ, “far above all principality and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come” (Ephesians 1:21). Glory to His Name forever!
What this means is that in these last days, as a child of God, you’re expected to arise and take your place of dominion, and reign in the Name of Jesus over circumstances. Romans 5:17 says, “…they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.” The actual Greek rendering of the word “reign” in the verse above is the verb “to king.” You’re called “to king” (reign) in life. Kings make decrees. So, speak the Word and see it happen.
The world and the fullness thereof has been given to you; so, be bold to take possession because you have the rulership. Command every contrary storm to be still in the Name of Jesus. Refuse to be sick, refuse to be poor. Be in charge and in control, winning every day. Reign and rule in life as the king that you are.
I’m what God says I am. I’m a member of His body, of His flesh and of His bones, reigning, ruling, and prevailing over circumstances. By the power of God’s Spirit, I take possession of all that belongs to me in Christ, enjoying my life to the full, to the glory of His Name. Blessed be God!
