Luke 10:19 -- "Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you."
Genesis 1:26 -- "And God said, Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over ever creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth."
When Adam sinned, man lost his spiritual dominion--we get it back through Christ.
To be victorious and live in the fullness of the destiny God has for our lives, we must begin by recognizing our position and authority in Christ.
Psalm 91:1 -- "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty."
There is a dwelling place or position in the spirit that we hold as believers in Jesus.
Ephesians 2:6 -- "And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus."
That is our position in the spirit. If we do not know our position we cannot function effectively in the body of Christ.
Ephesians 1:18-20 -- "The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of His calling, and what the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of His mighty power, which He wrought in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places,"
In that place we have God given abilities.
