6 You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet, Psalm 8:6
9 To execute on them the written judgment — This honour have all His saints. Praise the LORD! Psalm 149:9
15 But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. 16 For who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct the spiritual? But we have the mind of Christ. 1Corinthians 2:15-16
21 Therefore let no one boast in men. For all things are yours. 1Corinthians 3:21
1 Let a man so consider us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. 2 Moreover it is required in stewards that one be found faithful. 1Corinthians 4:1-2

The mysteries of God are as much His Creation as what He is redemptively doing for His Creation, to His own glory, through Christ and His Body of believers. Dominion from God over all of the works of His hands is spiritual dominion and not dominion exercised as a first principle of the flesh, though ministry to the whole Creation may flow from one's spiritual blessings through one's flesh in acts of practical service to God by nurturing His Creation, which ministers to the Lord.

To faithfully exercise one's dominion with Christ over the nations and to be a colaborer with His Spirit and those who are spreading the Gospel of His dominion over the nations, we are exhorted in 1Timothy 2:1-3 to pray for all nations and their leaders so that the world may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.  But are our blessings to stop at the hearts of all men everywhere?  Is this the extent of our dominion in the Scriptures?  I want to suggest to you that it isn't the extent of our dominion, nor the extent of our prayerful reign with Him.

Christians find themselves in emergency situations with the weather that they appear powerless to override with their faith because they never pray over nature until there is trouble.  It's difficult to build one's house in a storm!  We must pray over the number of the works of His hands, daily, that the Scriptures declare we have dominion over.  We must offer supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks over everything the Scriptures declare that we have dominion over and this includes the sun, moon, and stars that we must thank Him for, claim His wisdom regarding, and govern in His Name according to New Covenant grace, dominion, and faithfulness.

For the idols speak delusion; the diviners envision lies, and tell false dreams; they comfort in vain. Therefore the people wend their way like sheep; they are in trouble because there is no shepherd. Zechariah 10:2

 

Unless otherwise noted, Scripture quotations are from a solid Center Column Reference Study New King James Version Bible. Where Center Column Reference alternate renderings are preferred, they're not always noted on the site at the time of their usage in a given context, if there's a discrepancy between our quotation and a NKJV that our site's visitors use that's missing the Center Column Reference notes that provide more literal renderings, alternative Hebrew and Greek manuscript variations, etc. Sometimes an "Understood Subject" from the given chapter of the Bible or the particular book of the Bible (perhaps previous chapter) is given attention to while teaching. Reading (and rereading) each book of the Bible [in it's entirety] that's being quoted from in the midst of each subject is [always] greatly encouraged for added clarity! While we're [deeply] supportive of what's understood to be orthodox Christian doctrine on all matters, we're always looking for what God's ADDITIONALLY saying to us in each subject being taught.
