“Man, made in His likeness, possesses and reflects God’s dominion over all the earth.” (Science and Health, page 516)
God gave us dominion at the get-go. At the very outset of creation, God made man, the very image of all that He is and all that He loves, and gave that ideal man every good thing and the power to know this. This natural dominion is as much a part of our own being as is our very existence. It comes with the territory.
And God never withdrew that dominion from us or gave it to us concerning some things and not other things, at some times and not at other times, for some people and not for other ones. Our dominion, our natural power and control over all things that the earth would present to us, is permanent and complete. We have it in every circumstance, over every seeming material condition.
We have this dominion because we reflect God, the divine Mind. The control over that which would come into our experience and which would constitute it is not a human power. It is not subject to our personal ability to subdue problems and conquer the world. It is based on God’s precise control. We reflect His dominion and possess it through our reflection. The Original Omnipotent maintains that perfect control and order and keeps it all as perfect goodness, harmony, and infinite Life. Our dominion is utilized by yielding to the fact that all God has is ours. And so we are able to put all the terrors and errors of sense squarely under our feet, and walk freely and gratefully!
