God, in creating man, took the dust and moulded a form that couldn’t move, talk, hear, reason, or do anything. He took the form, stood it before Him, took part of Himself, and breathed it into that form. Then man became a living soul. When man opened his eyes the first thing he saw was God. God was saying to man, “You are like me.”
You are like God. Do not be afraid to accept the fact that you are like God, because God made you in His image. It is not anathema for a son to say he is like his father. When he does so it is acceptable. But at times we find it intimidating to believe that we are like God and that His plan for us is that we should function like Him. We look around and we are confronted by our inadequacies and errors. The very fact that you feel inadequate is proof that God is ready to do a great thing in you. God hardly ever uses the qualified; rather, He calls the available and makes them qualified. Stop feeling limited, and refuse any attempt by the enemy to put you down. Without any shadow of doubt God said, “I want to make them in my image and likeness”, and He did. Beloved, you are exactly like God.
Child of God, you are like God. And you have eternal life, so stop living a low life. Stop going about with limitations. Stop saying you cannot make something happen or that you are disadvantaged simply because of your background. If God is not limited, you cannot be limited. If God is a success, then you are a success. If God cannot be defeated, then you cannot be defeated.
You are like God your Father. Praise the name of the Lord!
Genesis 1:26-28; 2:7, Psalm 82:6
