Genesis 1: 28 Be Fruitful and Multiply

Genesis 1
28 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.

God wants us to be creative and productive. When we are creative and productive, we grow. We spread. We fill the earth with God's Glory! He wants us to rule over every creature in His creation, to subdue it.

The word "subdue" means to overcome, quieten, or bring under control -- to tame.

Everything in God's creation was created to challenge us. When we are challenged, our creativity goes into overdrive.

We, as human beings tend to complain about our daily struggles, but do we ever stop to think that God gives us those struggles to help us grow and become who we are meant to be? And, if we had no challenges to meet us each day, wouldn't life be boring after awhile?

It is in human nature to be busy at something, for the most part. If we are not busy struggling to make ends meet, it leaves a WHOLE lot of room for us to be creative in getting into trouble. So, the next time you face problems, praise God! He's just trying to keep you busy so you can become who you are supposed to be for HIM!
