According to His word in Genesis 1:28, “God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
I like the way that verse started because it reveals that you and I are blessed and we should not be struggling or managing to survive life on daily basis. There are so many people who carry the heavy blessings of God and they do not know that the blessing is there so they are living from hands to mouths instead on living on the blessing according to the word of God. I also like the fact that He did not just bless them but he specified the kind of blessing that is expected of every mankind from the time of creation the end of creation.
Is it not beautiful that God said, ‘Be fruitful!’ I think He was not giving a suggestion here. He was giving an instruction so what He said here must be obeyed or must come to pass. If God said to anything, ‘go’ it is so certain that the thing we go. If God commands anything to come we all know that nothing will stop that thing from coming. Based on that knowledge we now have to revisit the blessing in Genesis 1:28. He said, ‘be fruitful.’ I take this as a command and there is no situation that can stop the word of God from coming to pass. God himself said that His word will not return to him void until it has performed what it was sent to accomplish and that applies to the blessing that says we should be fruitful!
As if that was not enough He also said, ‘multiply!’ Remember it was not a suggestion God was giving here. It was a blessing He was giving as we all know but now we have to see it as an instruction into our lives. When God created the first man we were all seeds and fruits inside him so it means that we were there when God gave that blessing and the blessing must operate in our lives.
Here is where we must learn to speak the word into our situation and into our bodies. Sometimes you need to go into your office and say, ‘you this business, hear the word of God which you have no choice but to obey, I am blessed to be fruitful and multiply so you have to reflect that fruitfulness and multiplication.’ For the woman who is expecting a baby I believe you can pick up the word and do the laying of hands on your womb by yourself saying, ‘I was a seed in the first man that God created and blessed so the command to be fruitful and multiply must be obeyed. You this womb, obey the command of God to be fruitful and multiply.’
This is the word of God! Never forget that God used the word to create the world that you live in and you have to use the same word to recreate your world! Before God spoke in the beginning we were made to understand that the earth was without form and void and darkness was on the face of the deep! This is the exact description for the life that has not received the word of God and does not speak the word into its situation. Many people’s lives are without form and void and in darkness because they have not done what God did. God spoke so you have to speak!
