You Are A Victor

Let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl
of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over
every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
Genesis 1:26
Too many people want to blame God for the bad things that happen in this life. You hear a lot of people say, “If God is in control, He’s
not doing a great job. If He is in control, then why is He allowing
earthquakes to shake our cities and kill thousands? Why does God allow
floods and hurricanes? Why does God allow war, poverty, child abuse,
and murder?”
But God gave the authority of this planet to man. He made man the “god”
of this world because every created thing on earth was subservient to
him. He also gave mankind the power of choice with the opportunity to
mess up or to succeed.

Adam was essentially given an open-ended lease over the Garden of Eden
and the earth during which time mankind would have total authority in
the earth. It was an “if/then” agreement, and the “if” part involved honouring God’s single limitation. Adam could yield authority to others,
or he could operate in that authority himself-it was his choice. That
meant that God was saying, in essence, “I give my man the authority to
operate this planet. Go ahead and operate!”
