Has the thought ever come to you, why we as human beings were created? Believe it or not, we were created to rule, but not over another. The problem came about when man failed to obey his creator's command. That was the key to our present situation.
We were created for rulership. With this definition in mind, it is now critical for us to define the word "dominion"; for this was God's expressed purpose for the creation of mankind. Now the meaning of dominion, in the Constitution of Genesis, 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 the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth". As you can read and see, we weren't created to rule over one another, but over fish, animal and birds, etc.
The meaning of dominion is radah, which means "to tread down, to subjugate". In other words, to bring under control or subjection; prevail against. I trust that you will realize God's original purpose for your life before the fall of man in the garden. From the beginning, God's purpose was for mankind to have rulership, dominion, mastery, authority and leadership over the earth and its environment. I want to share some things that purpose reveals: a. Purpose determines design, b. Purpose determines potential, c. Purpose determines natural abilities, d. Purpose determines capacity and ability, e. Purpose determines natural talent, f. Purpose determines natural desires, g. Purpose determines fulfillment and personal satisfaction, h. Purpose is the source of passion, i. Purpose gives existence its meaning, j. Purpose is the measure of success and failure.
Keep in mind, when God created us to do something, He designed us with the potential and the ability to see it through. 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.” He gives you the ability to complete your vision and dreams.
