“For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.”– (Romans 6:14 NKJV)

The devil will do his best to convince you that sin has dominion over you.  But the Bible says that grace has dominion over you.

A dear pastor friend had been an alcoholic in his past.  Two years after he was born again, he was tempted by Satan to take a drink.  When he did, he became hopelessly drunk and fell into terrible despair.  He felt so condemned that he said, “There is no hope for me.  Sin has totally taken over.”  He decided to take his life because the devil told him that there was no hope.  The devil told him that the sin of alcoholism would always have dominion over him.  But, thank God, another pastor cursed this work of the devil and strengthened our dear friend’s heart in the Word of God.  Our friend was set free.

This happened many years ago.  But even today, when you talk to this man, he will tell you again and again about the power of grace.  We need to know Who Jesus is in us-that He Who is in us is greater than he who is in the world.

Dear Heavenly Father,

We thank You today that sin does not have dominion over us.  We choose, instead, for Your grace to have dominion over us.

In Jesus’s Name,
