Sin cannot get confirmed dominion over the child of God, because God hath promised that it shall not. “Sin shall not have dominion over you.” Oh! how I love these “shalls!” There seems something grand in them. “Sin shall not.” Ah! Satan may come with temptation, but when God says, “Sin shall not have dominion,” it is as when the sea comes up in the fullness of its strength, and the Almighty saith – “Hitherto shalt thou come, but no farther; here shall thy proud waves be stayed. -Charles Spurgeon-
Romans 6: 14 – For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
For – gar – a primary particle; properly assigning a reason (used in argument, explanation or intensification; often with other particles)
sin – hamartia – offence, sin
shall not – ou – a primary word; the absolutely negative
have dominion over you – kurieuo – to rule, have dominion over, lord, be lord of, exercise lordship over; of things and forces to exercise influence upon, to have power over
indicates the contemplated or certain occurrence of an event which has not yet occurred (future tense.)
Indicative Mood – a simple statement of fact. An action that is occurring now, has already, or will in the future
This verse makes a huge statement. If you have asked Jesus to come into your heart I’m sure you will still be tempted just as He was when living on the earth, but God has given you the power to have victory over Satan and the temptation that he is trying to destroy you with. You don’t have to give in even if Satan is putting immense amounts of pressure on you.
God has given you His power to have the victory but you must walk in that power and know and understand the promises of the Bible. Satan knows them very well and plans his attacks carefully and methodically to achieve maximum results in your life. He will sometimes wait years for just the right moment to bring you down in a huge way.
Child of God, stand on and claim this verse with everything in you because sin absolutely cannot have power over you unless you give it approval. You will be tempted but you can boldly ask God to come to your aid because you are standing on His Word and claiming it with your whole heart.
Stand on the promises of God and let Him help you defeat the enemy Satan!
