"For if because of one man's trespass (lapse, offense) death reigned through that one, much more surely will those who receive God's overflowing grace (unmerited favor) and the free gift of righteousness; putting them into right standing with Himself, reign as kings in life through the one Man Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One)" (Rom. 5:17 AMP).
In the time when Paul wrote this, kings reigned over certain countries or domains. You are to reign in your domain too. This doesn't mean you're to reign and rule over other people, but you're to rule and reign in your life, your dominion.
You're to rule and reign over circumstances, poverty, sickness, disease - everything that would hinder. You're to reign because you have authority!
How do you have it? Through the One, Jesus Christ.
Don't let the Devil cheat you out of the blessings God intended you should have. God never intended that you should be poverty stricken and destitute.
He didn't intend that the Devil should rule and reign over your family and dominate them.
Just get angry at the Devil. Tell him, "Take your hands off of my children! You've got no right here. I'm ruling over this domain!" If he says anything about it, quote him Romans 5:17.
Confession: I reign in my domain. I have the authority to do so. I reign by the One, Jesus Christ. The enemy cannot rule over my family. He cannot rule over me!
