And 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 moveth upon the earth. (Genesis 1:28)
God’s Kingdom is a government, and if you’re born again, you have Kingdom authority. God has called you to rule where He’s placed you, which includes the command to “be fruitful, multiply, replenish the earth, and subdue it.”
God’s mandate for us to subdue the earth includes not only bringing salvation and restoration to individuals, but to cities and nations. When you come on the scene as a citizen of the Kingdom, everything changes. Why? Because the Kingdom of God is in you. All of it!
All of the kingdom can be in me, and all of it can be in you at the same time. What is this kingdom going to do? It’s going to provide and bring to you everything you have ever needed independent of the circumstances around you.
Each of us are made in the image of our Creator, having the same spiritual DNA to bring forth creatively something new. Wherever you work, in government, education, technology or entertainment, expect the seeds or ideas that would answer your call or mandate to be fruitful as a co-laborer with God.
Dear Lord, thank you that Your kingdom is in me and You have called me to “be fruitful, multiply, replenish the earth, and subdue it.” I seek Your plans and purposes for my life and I give You praise for providing everything I need to fulfill my divine assignment on Earth. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
