You were created as a child of God, bearing His image.
I know what you may be thinking. “I haven’t been reflecting Him very well.”
That doesn’t change the fact that you were created in His image and are His child. The statement above is from God’s perspective. We have the freedom to choose if we live as a child of God who bears His image. Whether you do or not, doesn’t change the fact that you are His child designed as His image.
There are promises and statements in the Scriptures that are clearly for those who love Jesus and live with Him as Lord. However, there are truths that apply to all humanity.
In the devotional called Victory we discussed how we are all created and designed to conform to the image of Christ. (Romans 8:29). Today’s verse, Ephesians 1:5, we see that we are all destined to be His children. Which means, you were created and designed in His image, as His child.
God is a good father and you are His child.
Will you allow the perfect Father to love you unconditionally?
Verse of the Day
For it was always in his perfect plan to adopt us as his delightful children, through our union with Jesus, the Anointed One, so that his tremendous love that cascades over us would glorify His grace. For the same love He has for His Beloved One, Jesus, he has for us. And this unfolding plan brings him great pleasure!
Prayer of the Day
Father, your great love for me is the reason that I am your child. You created and designed me. Every part of who I am meant to be is fashioned by Your great love. Today I surrender the ideas I have of what it means to be Yours and I ask that you reveal to me who I am through Your eyes.
