(The Spirit Of The Lord Gives You Boldness And Dominion)
By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
TO THE BIBLE: And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him—the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the reverential and obedient fear of the Lord” (Isaiah 11:2 AMPC)
The first of the seven Spirits of God resting upon the Lord Jesus, mentioned by Isaiah in the scripture above, is the Spirit of the Lord. He’s the Spirit of dominion and He’s the reason the Lord Jesus functioned the way He did while He was on earth—Jesus healed the sick, cast out devils and lived a life of dominion (Acts 10:38)!
When you’re born again and filled with the Holy Spirit, you have the Spirit of the Lord in you. He makes you bold; He anoints you with power for service and puts you in charge of situations. This was what the prophets of old experienced whenever they had to declare God’s Word without fear or intimidation. The Spirit of the Lord came upon them and empowered them to dominate their circumstances.
When the Holy Spirit takes charge of your life, timidity becomes a thing of the past. He enables you to take charge of situations; He produces the boldness and dominion of God in you so you can do things that are consistent with God’s will.
Begin to manifest the boldness and dominion of the Spirit everywhere you go. Be conscious of the fact that you’re not ordinary. Refuse to allow fear or intimidation. It’s time to walk in boldness and dominate your environment and take charge of the circumstances of your life.
Every time you go out, say, “I go with the Spirit of dominion!” This is the day of God’s power; this is the hour of His glory; this is your time to rule your world and reign in life!
Go Deeper: Psalm 8:4-6; Micah 3:8; 2 Timothy 1:7
Speak: I have the Spirit of dominion! Nothing and nobody can intimidate me or stop my progress. Fear and timidity are completely banished from my life because the boldness of God is in my spirit! I’m reigning in life, and dominating my world for Jesus; I manifest the glory of God’s Kingdom everywhere I go. Hallelujah.
