And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. – Genesis 1:26
It’s time we realize what a privilege we have in being made in the image & likeness of God and how that pertains to our everyday life. Even though Adam & Eve fell, we must know that Jesus restored our originally created position that gave us dominion over everything.
Being made after God’s likeness is so much more than just shape or form, it is that we are a representation of God on this earth. Therefore, whatever God has we should also have.
God is not struggling financially. He has no lack and as someone made in His image, you shouldn’t be struggling either. When we don’t realize who we are in Christ, we tend to pursue the things that we don’t have. But, that’s not the answer.
If you are lacking money, you don’t have to pursue money, you need to pursue who you are in Christ. When you do that, the money will come because in Christ there is no lack.
In everything, recognize that you are made in God’s likeness and in areas where your representation isn’t quite up to par this should be your prayer:
“God, I am made in your image and your likeness, show me what You would have me do in this situation.”
