Amazing God...

Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created mankind in his own image,in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.Genesis 1:26-27

God exists and He is real. He is a spirit and so are we because He is our father and we were created to his image. We may live in a body but we have a supernatural family with supernatural resources. God provides us with everything we need in the spirit. All we have to do is receive but we are distracted but what is going on around us and we are not aware of our power. God created us to be like Him but the original sin separate from God. Since the fall of man, God has been trying to get our attention back to Him. We are the ones who are reluctant to receive. God even sent His son Jesus Christ to become like us in order to get us to be more like him. That is how amazing God is!

Young Christians often plead, beg and cry out to God about our challenges. Some of us don't know that God had already provided for us. Others don't know that they can rest and take authority. Friend, maturing Christians need to spend less time on the knees asking God for stuff He already provided and  instead invest time praising him for who He really is: our amazing God. Philemon 1:6 tells us to acknowledge the good thing that Jesus has already put inside of us. We are equipped with all we need to succeed. "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ" Ephesians 1:3

All of our prayer requests have already been fulfilled through Christ and now God lives inside of us. That is why we close our eyes when we pray. We try to look inside of us. The truth is whatever it is we need from God, we already got it. God does not wait until we have a need to supply it. God is not sitting on a throne somewhere distant from us, picking and choosing whose prayer request He is going to fulfill. Our amazing heavenly Father is all knowing. He already knew what our needs would be and He provided for it before we even realized we needed it. All we need to do is reach inside of us and take authority. God made sure to be within reach. Friend, Jehovah Jireh made sure all was in place before we were created. We only need to acknowledge who we are in him.We were created to rule over the creation and not the other way around. Our amazing God provides.

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.” Genesis 1:28

Praise the Lord!
