Dominion of the Earth
Food For Thought
I would like you to meditate on the word dominion. God gave us dominion over the earth at the beginning of mankind and we have been slowly making decisions as a people that allows the land and the earth to have dominion over us.
GENESIS 1:26,28-30 NKJ
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[a] the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
29 And God said, “See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. 30 Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food”; and it was so.
Dominion means to rule, to govern, or to have authority over.
Our prayers should be today-
"Lord give us the understanding of where this all went wrong. Give us the wisdom that only you can provide. You trusted us to have dominion over everything on this earth. We have allowed the earth to steal, kill, and destroy us, this was not your plan. The plants of the earth were meant to glorify your name but we have allow every addictive plant to separate us from your will. Today we are going back to the beginning to repair what the devil has taken from us; our families, children, parents, sisters, brothers, uncles, aunts, grandparents, community, and schools. We declare in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ as his children, we will not stand and watch this continue. Alcohol, Cocaine, Opiates, or anything else that grows from the ground will not control us anymore. We want to be back in your will. We are calling out in your name, humbling ourselves, seeking your face, asking for forgiveness for all of our sins, turning from our wicked ways and You PROMISED to heal our land."
God allows us to make our own decisions whether good or bad but we sometime have to live out the consequences of those choices. We have a free will and God allows us to take the wheel on occasions. But do you see what happens when we drive this car too long, we put God in the back seat. He belongs in the front seat, hand on the steering wheel, and feet on our gas/brakes.
Prayer with me, that God will hear our cry and heal the land that the domain to us.
