“So God created man in His own image…” Genesis 1:27

From the beginning of time we have been created in God’s own image. He breathed into Adam’s nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being (Gen. 2:7). As you can see we were created for greatness. As some would say life happens, and the fall of man caused us to be separated from God. 

The enemy immediately twisted our image making it distorted. Many of us are still living lives that are bound up by the enemy, keeping us captives to his lies and deceit. “You will never win.” “You will never be good enough.” “You are ugly.” “You are annoying.” “You are a loser.” “How could you be so stupid?” Lies after lies he spews out his mouth into our ears. It is time to cancel the lies and replace them with God’s truth.

If you have asked Jesus in your heart and repented of your sins then you are a new creation in Christ. Old things have passed away behold all things are new (2 Corthians 5:17). You are His beloved (Romans 1:7). You are holy and without blame before Him in love (Ephesians 1:4; 1 Peter 1:16). You are chosen by God who called you out of the darkness of sin and into the light and life of Christ (1 Peter 2:9). Your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit; you belong to Him (1 Corinthians 6:19).

Speaking God’s truth over our lives even heals the hurt caused by the enemy. Remember every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights (James 1:17). For His words are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh (Proverbs 4:22). How sweet are Your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth (Psalm118:97).

You see, we are made for greatness! With God on our side we win! It is important to put ourselves in remembrance what the Lord says about us. To cast down the thoughts that go against the word of the Lord (2 Corinthians 10:5) and think on these things….

Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise… (Philippians 4:8). Know who you are in Christ. Know your true identity. Always remember that you are loved and created for purpose. Until next time, keep your head held high as a child of God and know your DNA.
