Have you ever wondered why the world exists? Why there is air and light and gravity and land and water and all that stuff? Have you ever wondered why it’s so colorful and vibrant?
The answer is YOU. God created the Earth to provide a beautiful home for you to enjoy. Everything you see, taste, touch, smell, and hear was created for your senses. The creator of the universe has purposed your life to enjoy His creation. But your existence is not only purposed for enjoying His creation, but also for ruling over it!
Genesis 1:28 teaches us about Adam and Eve and it says, “God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” The heavenly father has created us to steward this magnificent place that we call home. That gives me direction. That gives me significance. That gives me purpose!
My purpose is to be fruitful and multiply, to fill the earth and subdue it. To rule over every living thing! That incorporates every area of my life. Think about how Genesis 1:28 applies to your life.
Today, I simply want to remind you that your life has a purpose. You are created for greatness: to rule and to reign. Teach this to your children today. Take 1 minute right now to think about your children. Think about their purpose. Think about the talents and abilities that your children have. How can you speak life into their purpose today? Write it down. Before you lay your head down tonight, remind your child of their God-given purpose. Let them experience the power of a father’s blessing.
