Dominion 6-7-06

Good morning, Lord Jesus. Open the eyes of my heart to seek You. ... "When I look at Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars that You have established; what are human beings that You are mindful of the them, mortals that You care for them? Yet You have made them a little lower than God, and crowned them with glory and honor. You have given them dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under their feet" (Psalm 8:3-6). You are the Creator and we are the created. Yet You created us with love and given us glory and honor in measures we could never deserve and never earn just becuase it is Your will to do so. You have entrusted the rest of Your creation to our care. In Your dominion, You have given us dominion. Forgive us for failing to care for Your creation as You have cared for us. Give me grace to see that part of Your creation You have put under my feet. Give me Your heart to love it and Your wisdom to steward it with glory and honor. This is not pride, this is obedience -- not to honor ourselves, but to honor You. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen. Be encouraged this day! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
