I Am in Charge!
“God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.” Genesis 1:28
This is a simple instruction or order from God. Be fruitful, multiply, replenish, subdue and dominate. All of these words are words of authority. Whenever God speaks, He means it, and that is His will. All humanity is intended to walk in alignment with God’s will, anything outside His will is not of God, and we must check it out.
Being fruitful and able to multiply describes our productive ability. And production doesn’t just spring out of nothing; there’s always a combination of resources. Without preexisting resources, either in the form of materials or ideas, production remains impossible. So, God was so sure that He had blessed humanity with the necessary resources needed to be fruitful and multiply on the earth; therefore, we are inexcusable to yield to God’s order of production.
2 Corinthians 5:20 says, “Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.”
God added that we should subdue and dominate, in order words, be in charge, control, be the king and rule over. And then we are not confused about what to dominate on… “Have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.” Hooo… this is powerful. Are you open to what I’m talking about today?
Many people have taken Christianity and spirituality as an excuse not to take some higher positions. We are to dominate in this world, not to live as a slave. We should be in power and not be oppressed. Furthermore, we are in charge of everything on earth. Can you begin to see yourself in charge right now? Speak to the air, speak to the earth, that they may favor you in Jesus name. Psalm 115:3 says, “Our God is in the heavens; he does all that he pleases.”
Lord, help me to walk in full capacity. I refuse to live like a servant; you have called me to dominate.
