God gave Man dominion (control) over the entire Earth

Genesis 1:26

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all.”

Psalm 8:3-8

3 When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained,

4 What is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him?

5 For You have made him a little lower than the angels, and You have crowned him with glory and honor.

6 You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet,

7 All sheep and oxen— Even the beasts of the field,

8 The birds of the air, and the fish of the sea that pass through the paths of the seas.

God doesn’t force His will on us; He desires that we learn how to operate in the Earth by developing a relationship with Him. Think about it! Here is a CEO (God) that will hire you first of all just by hearing you say yes. He is willing to take a chance on you developing the necessary skill set to not only keep the job, but train others.

The Bible says God gave man dominion. In other words, He will NOT overrule man’s decisions. We often hear conversations from people complaining that God allow bad things to happen… If bad things are happening, it’s NOT God’s fault, we (Man) have been given dominion over the Earth. The problem may be that we are NOT communicating with the CEO (God). Oh, by the way, where are we receiving our training from, Heaven (where God reside) or Earth (where confusion resides)?

Remember this! God is the creator of everything, if we desire to see positive changes in the Earth; we must communicate with the CEO (God) for instructions. How can we find God? I am glad you asked. When we desire to establish a relationship with someone in the Earth, first we get to know them (2 Corinthians 5:17 say… Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new). A new relationship need to occur showing God that you desire to connect with Him. The process starts here… Romans 10:9 say… that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. Nothing happens with your outer man (Flesh) at first, but your inter man (Heart) start to turn toward God; Just as we do… when we STOP looking for another when we have connected with the REAL thing.

Finally, spend time getting to know Him by reading His Word (The BIBLE). By the way, Love is spelled TIME!

Blessings to all!
