Dominate Your World (4)
Serve Your Gifts
Genesis 1:28 NKJV “Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.””
Wearing a consciousness of the dominion nature within is very important in walking in dominion. However the purpose of dominion is not to be lifted in pride and try to control everything and everyone around us, rather it is to transform the dilapidation in the world around you into the Garden of Eden. This was the Eden mandate in Genesis 1:28 when God spoke to Adam saying “Be fruitful and multiply, replenish the earth, subdue and have dominion”.
With each person born into this world, God has placed potential in the heart of the person; a unique gift that is beautiful in its own way. God expects humankind to produce fruit from their innate potential and multiply. It is in the expression of your gift potential and abilities that you are able to exercise your Eden (or dominion) mandate. Observe the world around you, and you will realize that there are needs. Your service to humanity in meeting the needs of people is what causes you to rise. Jesus taught His disciples this when He said to them, “if anyone desires to be great, he must be the servant of all” (Mark 9:35). Your gifts, talents and abilities were not placed in you so you can enrich yourself. They represent your heavenly equipment given to you to restore the earth to the likeness of Eden (heaven’s replica).
Begin to solve the problems in the world around you with your gifts. Start on a small scale, and ask yourself what you can do to make the world around you a better place. As you keep your heart and mind focused on service, you will rise in dominion.
Scriptures to Meditate: Isa.51:3; 58:12, Jer.17:7-8, Acts 20:35, Ezek.36:33-36
