I Am, In Christ, Created in God’s Image (Day 16)

Affection of man and womanWhy is it such a struggle to feel like you belong in this world? Because you don’t! You were created for something far greater.

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created them, male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27 (ESV)

God created you in His own perfect image. You were made with the purpose of being a reflection of him, a visible, touchable, tangible reflection of God right here on earth.

That means that God created you with a divine design. Women are a very special gift from God so often overlooked by the world around. But don’t you let anyone tell you that you aren’t important or you don’t matter! You ARE an intricate part of God’s plan for mankind.

When God created the universe, he looked at each creation and declared it was not. Such a declaration declared that God was satisfied with what he created, and he was ready to add the next brush stroke to his amazing masterpiece. 

When God created man, he said, “…it is not good that man should be alone; I will make a helper fit for him.” Genesis 2:18 (ESV)

Do you see how valuable you are? God saw his creation of man as incomplete. He saw that man was going to need something – even though that man was a reflection of God, he needed a final piece; a beautiful compliment, a companion, a helper. That’s when God created woman.

Stop looking in the mirror and wishing you were different or thinking you aren’t absolutely beautiful! God created you in HIS image. That means you are beautiful, marvelous, matchless, and you are good. How do I know? Because my God says so in His word!
