Day 1 of 30 – Our True Identity Challenge
Dear Seeking Sister,
First thing we need to know about our identity is that we were made in God’s image. I hear this so often that I sometimes don’t meditate on this fact. When I think about all that God is (what I know and what I don’t know), to imagine that I was made in His image can be an overwhelming, yet inspirational reality.
Action: Set a timer for 5, 10, 15, or 20 minutes. Read the following scripture and then close your eyes and think about this fact. By setting the timer you don’t have to keep checking how much time has gone by, the timer will go off when you’ve reached the minutes allotted for this meditation. After your meditation, please share any new revelation that may have surfaced.
“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” (NIV)
“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” (NKJV)
“God spoke: “Let us make human beings in our image, make them reflecting our nature So they can be responsible for the fish in the sea, the birds in the air, the cattle, And, yes, Earth itself, and every animal that moves on the face of Earth.” God created human beings; he created them godlike, Reflecting God’s nature. He created them male and female. God blessed them: “Prosper! Reproduce! Fill Earth! Take charge! Be responsible for fish in the sea and birds in the air, for every living thing that moves on the face of Earth.”” (Genesis 1:26-28 MSG)
