Upon creation, Man has a divine mandate to WIN – “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion…” (Gen 1:26 KJV)
It is my firm belief that the essence of life is to WIN and WIN against all ODDS!. That belief forms the foundation of these writings and gives light to the knowledge that touches many across the world as they read…
…to win and have dominion is a right – “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion…” (Gen 1:28 KJV)
…and as Christ also gave himself for us, we are empowered with this same right, even at a greater measure – “…they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ. (Rom 5:17 KJV)
So I realized the first challenge in this new creation is not knowing we have dominion or knowing our right, but recognizing that right when he shows up – “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,…” (Tit 2:11 KJV)
Paul put it this way – “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:”(Rom 1:20 KJV)
“…Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, (Rom 1:21 KJV)
So they knew, but did not recognize him as God…
…your first step in enforcing your right to win is to recognize that your winnings are centered around Christ and Christ alone – “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,…” (Tit 2:11 KJV)
…he who embodies salvation, through whom God will achieve it, has appeared…RECOGNIZE him when he shows up…
This week, may you recognize Grace when he shows up, so that your results will not be by toiling but will come with ease by Grace.
In part 2, we will talk about the second step in enforcing your right to win.
