Do You Have Dominion?

The excerpt below was taken from “Take It – It’s Yours” by Lester Sumrall.


Recently in prayer, the Lord spoke to me and asked, “Do you have dominion?

I replied, “Yes, Lord.”

Then look like it!” He said.

Your appearance must not be sad, depressed, or defeated.

Again the Lord asked, “Do you have dominion?

I replied, “Yes, Lord.”

He said, “Then talk like it!

Your speech reveals either dominion or defeat.

Again the Lord asked, “Do you have dominion?

I replied, “Yes, Lord.”

Then walk like it!” He said.

Keep your shoulders high and walk with victory in every step! (Why? Because you DO have the victory!)
