Topic: Functioning Like God”
TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: Genesis 1:26
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.
When God was creating Adam, the Bible says He made him in His own image and likeness, to look like and act or function like God. He wanted Adam to be a carbon copy of Himself to the point of even testing Adam to see if he acted and functioned like He did.
God formed the animals and birds and brought them to Adam to see if he would call them exactly what He had already decided to call them. Adam gave them all the right names, and it proved to God Adam was a perfect carbon copy. You see, God intended for all of us to be like Him. When Adam fell, God had Jesus to take his place, and He (Jesus) became the second Adam.
He made Jesus to become an exact replica of Himself (see Hebrews 1:3). If you received Jesus as Lord and Saviour, He now lives in you and helps you to be conformed into the image of God. That means you have the power of God in you to function like Him and call those things which are not as though they are.
You have the power to change your life and to create with your words, just like God created using His Word. Today understand that you are made in God’s image and change your life with your words as you begin to function like Him.
I release words to create my future. I am empowered to act and function like God because of Christ in me.
