You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet,” Psalms‬ ‭8:6‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“You have delegated to them mastery over all you have made, making everything subservient to their authority, placing earth itself under the feet of your image-bearers.” Psalms‬ ‭8:6‬ ‭TPT‬‬

This verse is reemphasizing the assignment we have as His image-bearers. We have work. Especially when it’s assigned by God we have everything required to be excellent in it.

So today, there may be so much that you want to do and so much that you find it beyond a stretch. But never be proud where you miss the humility in understanding  your rightfulness in Christ. And, in all it’s simplicity, it’s a total surrender to the One who holds you together. You have the freedom to yield , to please Him, and to give Him all the glory.

Dominion is ineffectual if we aren’t using our God-given freedom to abide in His Son, daily. And, also if we choose to believe in a lie about ourselves.

  1. Yes! Abiding in Him is so important. If we think that it is in our own ability that we have dominion, we are misunderstanding the work of Christ in His death and resurrection.
