In His Own Image and Likeness

Genesis 1:26 “Then God said, ‘Let us make human beings in our image, to be like ourselves. 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.'”

When God decided to create man, He wanted someone that would resemble and look like Him in the earth. He wanted all creation to look at man and see him as an extension of Himself: looking, sounding, acting like Him. This is the REAL you. Inside you is someone with the ability to act like God in the earth: someone who acts with wisdom, whose actions are motivated by love, full of compassion and understanding, someone who speaks with authority… 
When you look at yourself and you don’t see that, all that means is you need revelation to see your self the way He sees you. Your identity is “Christ in you, your hope of glory”. Ask Him to show you who you are, to let His glory be reflected through you so that anyone who looks at you will know that you are His by the way you live your life… Not by your strength or power, not by trying, but by continually asking Him to live His life through you.
