Psalms 82:6 NLT “I say, ‘You are gods; you are all children of the Most High.”
When you think of God, what goes through your mind? An invisible being, who’s everywhere, all knowing, all powerful and wise? Those thoughts are true. What makes God who He is, are His life, His nature, His abilities, His thoughts and His love.
Man, you and I, was created, not just to look like God, we were created like God! You will be blind to this truth as long as you see only the dust (the body of man). God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us.” Genesis 1:26. When God created Adam, He breathed into Him His life and His nature! That life could not die, that life could not be sick, that life was creative and innovative, and that life was powerful!
But sin corrupted the life that God gave to man. However, when a man is in Christ, he is a new creation! Meaning that he ceases to be a “normal” human being; he was born again by the very word of God that is God! Therefore we are gods by virtue of our new birth. If you have received the Holy Spirit, understand that you were turned into another man. Walk therefore in dominion and authority; tread upon scorpions and serpents, and over every power of the enemy! Be a solution to the problems in your world, be a creator and an invenyor, be an extension of God’s grace and love!
