Begin study:


The works of His hands are defined in the next few verses, but suffice to say, God has given humanity dominion over the content of planet earth and all that functions within it.

This will include all that we have discovered in science such as radio waves and such technological advances that have been discovered in medicine, science, manufacturing and so forth.

The things under our feet also defines the extent of mans dominion.

Now note one thing here. We will have space travel, but we will never rule the stars as we do this planet.

The stars are so far distant, that it would take us generations of travel just to get to the nearest star, and then populating any planets that might be habitable or useful would take generations more.

So the practicality of normal travel to and from the stars or anywhere out in space, is not likely to occur as it does here on earth between the continents. Time is not on humanity’s side as we seem to be nearing the end of our own current Church Age.

Even if we had another couple of centuries of history, space travel is still not likely on any kind of grand scale.

Of all of the life on this planet, man was given the soul and man was given the dominion to rule over all else.

And when you consider the entire universe, this planet is less than insignificant in the larger picture. And look how much trouble man has caused on this planet throughout history. Consider how much greater trouble could be caused if we had even more territory to rule.

Nevertheless, humanity is an insignificant pile of dust, on an insignificant planet, and yet given the honor and privilege to rule, when we can neither earn nor deserve that honor.

It was never mans self made destiny to rule. That was Gods gift.

No matter what your genetic makeup, no matter what your abilities might be, no matter what your talents amount to, no matter what your circumstances, great or small, it is all by the grace of God, and of no other reason.

You are not self made, you are not superior. Look at a pile of dust and look at yourself and then place an equals sign between the two and that is what you are.

Therefore, you have no place to boast or elevate yourself above anyone else.

All that you are, and all that you have, comes courtesy of the grace of God.



End of study





Study [by instruction],

to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]

unto God,

a workman [student]

that need not be ashamed [ignorant],

rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]

the word of truth [Bible doctrine].

If you can dream and not make dreams your master,

If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,

If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,

If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,

Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.

These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
