“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 (KJV)
From our text today, you will notice that God did not say be ‘seed-full’ but rather He said be fruitful because He knows you already have a seed. Everyone born on the face of the earth came with a seed. There is a unique seed you are supposed to plant on earth for the world to reap from. That is why He said “be fruitful”. In other words, God is saying let that seed I put in you be planted. It must be planted in people and it must be planted all around.
He went further to say “multiply”. In other words, increase, expand, enlarge yourself, distribute yourself and replenish the earth. To subdue and have dominion means to take charge and control. In essence, God is saying go and take control of the business world. Go and take control in the market place. Beloved, do you know that the world is waiting for you? As a business man, think of moving beyond your environment and be an international player. Yes, it may start with little profit but pretty soon it will become a large ocean. Don’t just sit down in a place and refuse to explore in certain other areas.
The scripture says: “And God blessed them”. The word “blessed” here means empowered. You have been empowered to be a success. You can’t be sitting on gold mines and be dancing to frivolities. There are great opportunities that you don’t have any reason to compete with one another.
My prayer is that God will open your eyes. By the mandate of heaven, I declare you blessed. You have entered your season of greatness, your season of acceleration, your season of influence and season of significance. I declare you a wonder to your generation. You will not be a liability. You will be the desire of many nations. Every spiritual illegality and contradictions you are experiencing now are nullified right now in Jesus Name.
