26 Then God said, "Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in 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." 27 So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. - Genesis 1:26-27 NLT
Hello family, God used a good sister to show me this scripture. I have read it many times before, but this time it stood out to me. Those three words “in our image” just let that sink in, let it simmer for a minute. We were designed to be rulers! Rulers submitted to God! We are not designed to be defeated!
Christ came to fix what Adam messed up! Adam surrendered his authority. Read verse 26 again! Adam should have put the serpent in its place! But for one moment he forgot who he was! He forgot the authority and command God gave him! The Commander-in-chief tells the captain of a ship “You have authority over the whole atlantic ocean, north, south, east, and west.” And he says to the captain don't let anybody in. The moment that captain drops his guard and opens the door for the enemy he has surrendered his authority! Because now the enemy can wreak havoc.
Christ gives us that authority back. He re alines us back into fellowship with God when we surrender our will to him. We get our identity from God, that is why we are nothing without Him! Family we only submit to God! Sin is no longer your master, depression is no longer your master, addiction of every shape and form are no longer you master.
Because we are made in His image, it is through God we over come those things. He will help you just ask him. You are made in his image!
Much Love & God Bless
