Learning Who You Are


Sometimes we are so into our current life. You know the part where we are smack dab in the middle of it and we don’t remember our beginnings and we can’t see the end.
Maybe pausing to remind ourselves where we come from might help us embrace where we are and get us to where we are going.
The first book of the Bible is titled Genesis; which means the beginning.
In the beginning God created…
The Creator spoke the heavens and the earth into being. God spoke separation between light and darkness. The sky, land, seas, vegetation, sun, moon, stars, birds and creatures of the seas were also commanded to be by His voice. Wild animals, livestock and creatures among the ground were also a result of God speaking.
Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness,
There is a whole lot going on in that verse above. Let’s do some unpacking.
This introduces the Trinity for the first time. Father God, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Mankind is to be created in the image of the God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
Our Image. Our likeness.
So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
God didn’t speak His people into existence, He felt it important enough to use more than just His voice.
So God created mankind
The fact that we are created in His image is repeated.
In his own image, in the image of God he created them
Male and female.
God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
God blessed His creation. He blessed His people.
God gave instructions; increase in number and to rule over the animals and vegetation.
God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.
Oh friends this is one of my MOST favorite verses!
God looked at all He had created it and declared…
It was VERY good.
That includes us. You. Me. Us.
We are His created and He sees us as VERY GOOD.
Friends I don’t know your past, your present or your future.
But what I do know is it doesn’t matter. Because God doesn’t see us through any of that.
And I will proclaim will all sorts of passion; our Creator sees us as VERY GOOD.
Upon creation this is true.
Now this is true.
He is unchanging.
Will you allow this to mix with your thoughts?
Will you allow this amazing perspective to sink into your heart and soul?
From this beginning there is a firm foundation in accepting who you are.
You are created in your Creators image.
And you are very good.
God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. Genesis 1:31
