Genesis 1:26-27(NLT) 26 Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. 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.”27 So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
Let these verses truly soak in...We were created in His image! It has been said that the word translated to image in these verses carries with it the thought of a shadow. As if God cast His shadow on us during creation. If you continue with that thought... in order for us to be His shadow would mean He is nearby!!! Therefore, God's constant image, that is in us, also brings with it the comfort of knowing God is constantly near to us!
Let us pray. Thank you God for always being near to us. As we go through this week lead us in your righteous ways. Help us to be a help, not a hindrance to those around us. Give us the strength to be used where you need us. Please guide our friends and family to your gift of salvation. We pray they will come to know you and love you. In the precious name of Jesus we pray. Amen
