The Believers Authority Guideline
Man has been created in the very image of God with the purpose of dominion. Man was not created weak, timid or designed to be bowled over by the circumstances of life but rather man was created to subdue, rule and take dominion over the circumstances of life. When we understand that we are under His authority, that He has delegated responsibility (authority) to us as people created in His very image, we realise that we have authority and are over-comers!!
Theme scripture: Genesis 1:26-28; Psalm 8:4-8; Psalm 115:16
Why do you think God created man in His image?
- What is the link between being created in His image and dominion?
- How will an understanding of dominion change your perspective on life and the situations/circumstances you may face?
- Practically, how do we live a life that can be defined as having dominion?
Take a few moments to pray for one another. Take authority over circumstances that are not in line with God's purpose!
