Rule in Life

by | Feb 1, 2010 | Spirit-Led Living

?Many believe they are merely struggling sinners who’ve been forgiven—and someday, in heaven, they will be like Jesus. This fallacy keeps people in bondage and nullifies God’s power in their lives. The Bible tells us we are His children: “Beloved, now we are children of God” (1 John 3:2, NKJV). If we are now His children, we now have access to fully operate in the character of Jesus.  We have the ability to live as He intended us to live from the beginning—extraordinarily! We can live in His image, His likeness, possessing His ability—all through grace! You are a son or daughter of God. You possess His nature. You were meant for anything but ordinary!??

Grace not only instructs us, but it also empowers us to live above our human potential. We’re born again, brand-new people, free to live an extraordinary life! The same power that raised Jesus from the dead abides in us. This is why the enemy has strived to reduce grace down to merely a ticket into heaven. If you find out who you are, you will rise up and be a great threat to his work. You’ll be extraordinary and change your world!

“All who receive God’s abundant grace and are freely put right with Him will rule in life through Christ” (Romans 5:17, TEV). This scripture shows we are to rise above the norm. We are influencers and leaders. If you’re a teacher, you can come up with the most innovative ways of communicating knowledge and wisdom. If you’re a designer, your creative ideas can be cutting-edge. As a businessperson, you can have inventive ideas and keen marketing strategies that are ahead of the curve. You’ll know when to buy and when to sell. If you’re a stay-at-home mom, you can be the most imaginative mom in your neighborhood. As rulers in life, we will meet others’ needs by the exceedingly great power that’s in us.

Those who find this grace-empowered life are not driven by personal gain or greed. They live to bring light, love, truth and resource to those they influence. In reaching beyond themselves, they touch hurting humankind and naturally flourish.

Extraordinary living has been God’s plan for you from the beginning—nothing less. But, you must truly believe this to begin enjoying a godly life, advancing in all areas of society. You were designed with the potential to be the most creative, innovative and wisest on earth! You were created to heal the sick and free the captives! A revelation of who you are and what you are called to do awaits you… ask, seek, knock—and believe!
