You made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet Psalm 8:6 AMP
Welcome to the second half of 2013. I believe everything God has said about your life this year will come to pass in Jesus’ Name. It’s a new month and a new beginning. As a result, l want to encourage you to forget about what is behind and press forward to what lies ahead.
God is with you
I want us to talk about Psalm 8:6 today. It is among the important topics in the body of Christ but believers don’t pay much attention to that. It’s no surprise that some people run or scream at the sight of mouse or cockroach. We run when we see dogs, not to talk about snakes, or other wild beasts. We cry when we face little challenges or face opposition. We blame God sometimes for what happen(s) to us and some have wandered away from the faith because they felt God could have done something about their situations which He didn’t. Man no longer has dominion over some of the works of God’s hands because of fear and doubt. You may not believe this but last three years I ran away from some dogs. They were unfriendly… The question I asked myself was “why did I run away from mere dogs, animals God has given me dominion over?”
For You have put everything in subjection under his feet. Now in putting everything in subjection to man, He left nothing outside [of man’s] control. (Hebrews 2:8, AMP)
God has put everything under your feet. The scripture says He left nothing outside your control. This means that your enemies are under your feet. You have power to control every situation that you will encounter. You have dominion over all sicknesses and diseases. You have power over “all flocks and herds, and the animals of the wild, the birds in the sky, and the fish in the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas.” (Psalm 8:7,8). Everything is under your feet in Jesus’ Name.
Friend God created you in His image, in His likeness, so that you may rule over everything.
Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” (Genesis 1:26, NIV)
As we start the second half of the year, I pray you exercise your authority as man over everything. Know that God didn’t create you to be average. He created you to do extraordinary things on earth. Your limitations are not real so press forward.
All things are under your feet.
