Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, and HATH MADE US KINGS and PRIESTS unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. (Revelation 1:5-6).
When God looks at you, He doesn't see a helpless, needy person who's always looking for a way out.
He sees a king; He sees someone full of dominion and authority! You've been ordained by God to reign and rule in the realm of life; He has made you superior to the devil and every demon of darkness.
Not only does God expect you to see yourself as a king, He also expects you to live as one.
How do you practise kingship? It begins from your consciousness. You must make up your mind that you're going to walk, talk, pray and live as a king.
The scripture says God has made you a king, so you look into the mirror and tell the fellow in that mirror, "You're a king!" Then you ask yourself, "How do kings behave?" One thing is sure: kings don't beg; they make decrees! So start making declarations of faith.
Begin to exercise your God-given authority and dominion over the devil and the negative forces of life. This kind of consciousness will affect your prayer life and all the beggarly prayer prayers will be a thing of the past.
When you pray, you should minister to God as a priest and make decrees as a king. You are a king, born of the king of kings! Your words are backed with power; they contain an inherent, dynamic ability to change any negative situation and put the devil to flight.
Therefore, be bold to speak in line with God's Word. Be bold to make decrees, and whatever you decree shall be established unto you.
Practising kingship will affect even your posture and gait. It'll get rid of the slouch from your walk and put some spring in your steps.
It'll cause you to square your shoulders, hold your head up, and walk with dignity!
