AUTHORITY HAS BEEN GIVEN

Genesis 1:31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

On a visit to the Louvre in France, one gets the chance to view one of the world’s most famous paintings: the Mona Lisa by Da Vinci. Even though he is remembered for other fine works, this painting is seen as the signature of his many art works.

While God created all things, after each day, He described what he had created as ‘good’. However, when he made man on the sixth day, in his own image and after his own likeness, he said all he had made was “VERY GOOD”. This tells us something: there is a special place in God for man and equivalently, a place in man for God.

There has been an existing relationship founded right at the start of time in which God put man at the very top of His creation.Hence God’s words in Genesis 1:28- be fruitful, multiply, have dominion over everything that exists. Man was therefore not created to be subject to circumstances and challenges that come his way. We were made and crowned with lordship; with authority as well as the ability to cause things to increase exponentially.

It should therefore not be too surprising to see a natural thirst and a race for the top spot amongst people- it is intrinsically wired into our DNA. In every person, there is an innate desire to rise above circumstances and challenges with heads held high. My dear, you, like every other person is a born fighter, already possessing the ability to take charge of things around, so press on to the very top.

Remember # Authority has been given to you but the decision to exercise it remains yours to make.
