Finding Hope in our Design
So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:27)
Often, we see ourselves as projected by the world, broken and torn among the dark corridors of the earth. God created us to be something better than what the world has to offer. God created us to be a light unto others, offering more to each other through the spiritual realm than what the world can ever give. We must learn to press into the realization that we were created not for the sake of the world but for the sake of the new kingdom, and as we come to this realization, we begin to thrive unhindered by the world.
I have created you in the likeness of My image so that you may assist Me in the gathering of My chosen people for the new reigning kingdom to come! The world will try to do its best to break you with all its many difficulties, but you, My child, were created to rise above these hard times to bear testimony to My great name! Understand the enemy is limited in his ability to deter your destiny to greatness. I provide you with the strength to reject his insults and constant attacks in My written word and by your persistent prayer that provides you with the power to overcome all obstacles along the way to eternity. Perceive yourselves always as great and mighty warriors who ward off the enemy at the call of My name, achieving victory, and you, My child, will succeed in all your efforts. Remember My promises, and you will grow into the beautiful, delightful servant I have created you to be. Don’t give up, for the time is near.
When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them? You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor. You made them rulers over the works of your hands; you put everything under their feet: all flocks and herds, and the animals of the wild, the birds in the sky, and the fish in the sea, all that swim the paths of the seas. (Psalm 8:3–8)
Prayer for the Day
Heavenly Father, I thank You for all that You have created by Your mighty hand, and I praise Your holy name. You have chosen me to be a light unto others in this world, and I ask that You help me to overcome the darkness with light. Help me to see in myself the great person You designed me to be. In Jesus’s name, I pray. Amen!
