FOCAL TEXT: Acts 17 vs 6
►► “But when they failed to find them, they dragged Jason and some of the brethren before the city authorities, crying, These men who have turned the world upside down have come here also (AMPLIFIED)”
BLISSFUL greetings, Cherished one. When God told the man to dominate, He was telling him to INFLUENCE the earth. In this life, either you are the influencer or the influenced. People and systems can be influenced either positively or negatively. But God expects His children to influence the world positively. To influence means to have an effect on someone or something. You can have a positive effect on others using your creative ability, skills, wisdom, gifts, talents or office.
Your ability to influence positively stem from your identity (Matthew 12:35). What good treasures do you find in you to influence your world positively? The world is already corrupt and darkened. The world needs more incorrupt minds to mend things. The world needs more lights to brighten its course. In our focal text, the people felt the influence of the Disciples who have been turning the world “upside-down”.
To the Jews, the disciples were bringing disorder. But they were truly influencing their world for Jesus Christ (Acts 17:7). What positive things are you bringing on board to help the progress of others? As a born again in Christ, you are the light of the world. Darkness should not influence you. Choose to be a positive influencer in the midst of a crooked generation. The rich grace of our Lord Jesus Christ abounds towards you always.
Father, I thank You for the revelation of Your word which inspires and ignites passion unto good works. As the light of the world, I graciously choose to positively influence my world of contact in Jesus Blessed Name! Amen !
Pray and make decrees of influencing your world positively in all aspects of your life.
