THEME: DOMINION OF MAN
For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.
-It was by one man’s offense that death reigned through the one, but much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through Jesus Christ. It was through one man’s offense that judgment came to all men resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man’s righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life. It was by one man’s disobedience that many were made sinners, and better still by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous. Moreover, the law entered that the offense might abound, but where sin abounded, grace abounded much more, so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 5:17-21). To be under the law is tying to earn salvation with our own strength but under grace is to be justified and live by the indwelling power of Christ. We can die to sin, not because of the law forbidding it, but because of the abundant grace that God provides. Christ suffered once for our sins that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit by His grace (1 Peter 3:18).
Oh LORD, our God, how majestic is Your name in all the earth. You are great and mighty to be praised. There is truly none like You in all the earth. You keep all Your promises for You are so faithful. We worship You and exalt Your holyname today. Thank You God for this new month. We honor You God and bless Your Name. May You sanctify us and cleanse us with Your precious blood Lord Jesus. We commit this new month of February unto You and pray that You shall be exalted and enthroned forever. We pray that we shall extend the dominion and reign that You bestowed upon us through Your Son Jesus Christ, upon the power of sin and death. Sin and death have no power over us for You dwell in us and with us Holy Spirit. Today in this new month, we subdue our flesh and the fleshly worldly desires by the Power that raised Jesus Christ from the grave. Father we ask for Your grace that You have given us so that we may overcome sin and all fleshly desires to be upon us and fill us more and more. Father we pray that You will guide us in the way of righteousness away from sin and the slavery of sin. We also pray for our families, friends and nation, that death will have no dominion over our lives. Break every chain that presents itself like death in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. We come against the spirit of death and we declare that death has lost its sting over our lives in Jesus name, and by the power that raised Jesus Christ from the grave death is defeated in Jesus Mighty Name. We declare that we shall live and not die to declare Your goodness Oh Lord. We declare that we shall not die before our time in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. We pray that You shall protect us from every snare of the devil and heal us from all sickness and infirmities dear Jesus. We pray that You shall take over and reign in our lives and in all that we do. Thank You Dear Lord for You are faithful and You are able to do all this beyond what we can ask for and even think of. Thank You Lord for Your exceeding grace and power upon our lives which You richly give unto us. We trust in You faithful God. We pray all this trusting and believing in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
