This Day in History: 0000-06-10
June 10 – Genesis 1:26-27
Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish of the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.” So God created human beings in His own image. In the image of God He created them; male and female He created them.
Do you ever struggle with your identity? Do you wrestle with feelings of insecurity, self-doubt, or shame? My friend, you are created in the image of Almighty God! I’m not sure that hit the mark, so, let me say it again. You are created in the image of Almighty God! One more time, just to be sure.
You are created in the image of Almighty God!
That’s right I said it three times, because you are created in the image of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – ALMIGHTY GOD!!! Have you ever taken the time to ponder that truth? Have you let it sink deep down into your soul? Do you realize who you are? The implications are endless, the gifts immeasurable! How can we possibly question our worth when we carry the fingerprints of the Creator of heaven and earth? How can we ever question our beauty when we are woven together with the fibers of the Breath of Heaven? How can we even think to question our purpose when the DNA of the Lord, Jesus Christ makes up our being? We are His precious children, created to reflect Him. Let us never be deceived into acting like anything less! May we each take some time today to thank Him for making us so wonderfully complex! May we worship in awe of His marvelous workmanship! May we ask Him to help us live up to all He has created us to be!
