“For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.” (Romans 5:17)
As a child of God, He has destined you to reign in this life because of the redemptive work of our Lord Jesus Christ on Calvary. The will of God for you is for you to be comfortable in every aspect of your life as His child. You need to overcome all limitations in your life if you will reign.
Ecclesiastes 4:14 says, “For out of prison he cometh to reign; whereas also he that is born in his kingdom becometh poor.” Prison here denotes anything that held you captive or placed a limitation on your life so that you cannot reign.
Though the circumstances around you tell you that you are finished, God says come out of prison and reign.
The text above says, “…they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in this life…” The emphasis is on the phrase “They which receive” Are you among “they which receive?”
No matter how agonizing your circumstance, you will reign in this life if you have received abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness.
FURTHER READING: Psalms 85:13, Deuteronomy 15:6
PRAYER/CONFESSION: Oh God my father give me the grace to see clearly the paths I need to tread in order to utilize appropriately the gift of righteousness that you have given me.
WORDS OF WISDOM: Any man in prison has lost the ability to reign.
