Genesis 1:28 - Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; REPLENISH and subdue it; have dominion ...."
God created Adam and gave the authority to run the world. He placed all things under him, and told him to “prosper, reproduce, replenish, and subdue.” The word "REPLENISH" means refill, renovate, replace, repair, or restore. The beautiful world God created got ruined and became unordered because there was a devil out there who brought destruction in this world, and man was given the opportunity and responsibility to fix it.
God blessed man and charged him to replenish the world. The word "blessed" means empowered to prosper, succeed, increase, multiply, excel, accelerate, and to rise above all. God put the power within a man to cultivate and tend the earth in a wonderful way. God said to man "be fruitful," it means "be innovative and be creative," to produce positive results. God created man to be effective and efficient to succeed in all his works.
This is the beautiful life to which we have been called in Christ: - a life of dominion, authority, blessings, and control over the world in which we live. When God says to have dominion, it is not meant to have dominion over other people because each one of us is made in the image and likeness of God; instead have dominion and authority over the world, and its elements, over the change of nature or weather.
Praise and thank God for the honour and privilege of the beautiful life we have been called into: a life of DOMINION, AUTHORITY, AND BLESSINGS; a life of CONTROL over the world, the forces of nature and the elements of this world. We effectively reign over the circumstances of our life, to the glory and praise of Your Name, in Jesus’ Name. Amen!

While I do think it is true that God has given us dominion and authority, I think it's important to recognize that the life of a believer should stem from FAITH. Faith is not just about what we see here in the earthly realm but also the spiritual realm. I also want to remind you that it is only GOD that truly is in control. He is the one that ALLOWS us to prosper. His word says that even the hearts of rulers are in His hand. We must take into consideration His Sovereignty. God is not subject to OUR will, but we are subject to HIS. Again, God does and will bless us but the Word tells us we will also experience trials and temptations as well. And in the valley is where we TRULY experience God's presence and his power working through us. Be blessed.
