|Reign in Life|
We are to reign in life as kings. When God looks at us, He doesn’t see us in weak, defeated or leftover positions. Not at all. God sees us as rulers, as royalty. We have His royal blood flowing through our veins.
Do you know what that word “reign” means? It means “your time in power.” God said we’re to reign “in life.” That means as long as you’re alive, that is your time in power. You don’t have a two-year term like the Mayor or a four-year term like the President. Your term is to rule and reign every single day, to be victorious, to rise to new levels, to accomplish great things.
Everyone has days when they don’t feel like royalty, they don’t feel powerful. On those days, if you can just remember to reach down and check your pulse, and as long as you feel something beating, you can say, “It’s still my time to reign!” Let that be a reminder to put on a new attitude. Walk like royalty, talk like royalty, and think like royalty. Remember, you have the blood of a champion, and you were created to reign in life!
|A Prayer for Today|
|“Father, thank You for making me an heir to Your promises. Thank You for giving me Your power so that I can rule and reign with You. Help me to see myself the way You see me so that I can live the abundant life You have in store for me in Jesus’ name. Amen.”|
