Ephesians 1:19-23 in the Amplified Bible says: "So you can know and understand what is the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe, as demonstrated in the working of His mighty strength, which Heexerted in Chrtist when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named ... above every title that can be conferred ... not only in this age and in this world, but also in the age and the world which are to come.  And He has put all things under His feet (we are His feet in this world) and hasappointed Him the Universal and Supreme Head of the Church (a Headship exercised throughout the Church), which is His Body, the fullness of Him Who fills all in all ... for in that Body lives the full jeasure of Him Who makes everything complete, and Who fills everything everywhere with Himself."  

Ephesians 2:5-7 in the Amplified Bible tells us: "Even when we were dead ... slain ... by our own shortcomings and trespasses, He made us alive together in fellowship and in union with Christ.  He gave us the very life of Christ Himself, the same new life with which He quickened Him, for it is by Grace ... by His favor and Mercy which you did not deserve ... that you are saved (delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ's salvation).  And He raised us up together with Him and made us sit down together ... giving us joint seating with Him ... inthe heavenly sphere by virtue of our being in Christ Jesus, the Messiah, the Anointed One.  He did this so that He might clearly demonstrate through the ages to come the immeasurable, limitless, surpassing riches of His free Grace (His unmerited favor) in kindness and goodness of heart toward us in Christ Jesus."

Sometimes we let the devil cheat us out of the blessings we could have in this life.  God didn't intend us to be poverty-stricken.  He told us in His Word that we are to reign in life.  He did not intend for the devil to dominate us and our families.
