Forgetting your position?

God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”

Genesis 1:28

Welcome back to my blog! Good morning, good afternoon, good evening. How have you been? I care about you and I trust that you are good.

Today’s post talks about forgetting your position. A particular day, I saw a chicken bullying a pigeon, trying to remove the contour feathers off the pigeon with it’s beak and I thought to myself “Did the pigeon forget that it can fly?” The pigeon remained there, trying to fight a battle it obviously did not excercise it’s authority on.

I think as humans, we do the same, we let situations of life overwhelm us and then we forget that we are greater than those situations. We forget that we can actually FLY above the situation.

There were some men who had the great and best Sailor in the boat with them, a storm came and immediately they forgot their position, they forgot who they were. Let’s read about that below please.

On that same day, in the evening, Jesus said to his disciples , ‘We should go across the lake to the other side.’ So they went and left the crowd behind. Jesus was already in the boat. So the disciples took Him across the lake. Some other boats also went with them. Then a strong wind began to blow across the lake. Water began to go into the boat and fill it. Soon the boat was almost going under the water. Jesus was in a comfortable place at the back of the boat. He was sleeping. The disciples woke him. They said to him, ‘Teacher, it does not seem to matter to you if we die here in the water!’ Jesus woke up and He spoke strongly to the wind and to the water. ‘Be quiet!’ he said. ‘Stop!’ Then the wind and the water became quiet again. Jesus said to his disciples, ‘You should not be afraid like that. You should believe in me.’
Mark 4:35‭-‬40 EASY
Youversion Bible

As you can see in the verses above, the disciples had power to overcome the storm. The pigeon had power to overcome bullying but in the midst of situations but it forgot it’s position and settled for defeat.

When we want to write an exam, we forget the Bible tells us we will be the head and not the tail, we will be above only and not beneath (Deuteronomy 28:13). When we forget we have power, we begin to settle for fear. Our power on the other hand is waiting for us to use it. The wings of the pigeon weren’t missing, the pigeon forgot it’s position. This post is not about the pigeon, it’s about me, it’s about you. I want you to remember that NOTHING was created to be above you. You have been given power to rule even before you were created. What’s that thing that’s making you worried? Excercise power in your position. Don’t forget your position.
