What is the image of God? You are made in God’s Image to be powerful! That tells you who you are and what you can do!
Genesis 1:26 Amplified Bible (AMP)
26 God said, Let Us [Father, Son, and Holy Spirit] make mankind in Our image, after Our likeness, and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the [tame] beasts, and over all of the earth, and over everything that creeps upon the earth.
What is that image? The first Image of God is found in the verse below:
Genesis 1:1 Amplified Bible (AMP)
1 In the beginning God (prepared, formed, fashioned, and) created the heavens and the earth.
Here we find that God is a ‘Creative Being’ that is ‘purposed’. He is no accident or coincidence.
Next we find God’s Image in verse 2 of Genesis 1. Remember this is your image too!
Genesis 1:2 Amplified Bible (AMP)
2 The earth was without form and an empty waste, and darkness was upon the face of the very great deep. The Spirit of God was moving (hovering, brooding) over the face of the waters.
God’s second Image is a Spirit. Not just any kind of Spirit but a conscious, intuitive, calculating Spirit. Are you seeing yourself now? You are a creative spirit with special abilities as well. What are those abilities? Look at verse three of Genesis 1:
Genesis 1:3 King James Version (KJV)
3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
God is a Speaking Creative Spirit that answers all situations (positive or negative ones) positive with what He wants. He literally looks pass what He does not want and refuses to acknowledge or give breath to the negative (The earth was without form and an empty waste, and darkness was upon the face of the very great deep.) Had God said what He saw it (the dark earth) would have remained the same forever (The earth was without form and an empty waste, and darkness was upon the face of the very great deep.) and not changed. He neutralized the negative situation with something positive and continued to say what He wanted till the earth was just like He wanted.
Everything we see began with words. Look at the following verse:
John 1:1-3 Amplified Bible (AMP)
1 In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself.
2 He was present originally with God.
3 All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being.
The person in the beginning of John 1:1 is Jesus who is and was the Word.
John 1:14 Amplified Bible (AMP)
14 And the Word (Christ) became flesh (human, incarnate) and tabernacled (fixed His tent of flesh, lived awhile) among us; and we [actually] saw His glory (His honor, His majesty), such glory as an only begotten son receives from his father, full of grace (favor, loving-kindness) and truth.
Jesus made everything including you by words. That is why you have a name which is also a word. Ironically you change everything by words just like God did in the verse above Genesis 1:3.
Now you understand how powerful you are by being made in the image of God. You have power! How? Look at what the Word, Jesus did for you.
John 1:12 Amplified Bible (AMP)
12 But to as many as did receive and welcome Him, He gave the authority (power, privilege, right) to become the children of God, that is, to those who believe in (adhere to, trust in, and rely on) His name—
You have everything you need to change you and your situation. Stop saying what you have and say what you want. Now go get started!
God is Love, Love conquers and covers it all…
