“Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion…”
Have you ever overslept? I remember once, there was a power outage in the middle of the night, causing my alarm clock to trip. As a result, I missed my wake up call and was late for work in the morning. For those of us who have a bit of difficulty getting up early in the morning, we know that alarms are necessary reminders to “get up now”!
Surprisingly, there are many of us today who are still sleeping. We are walking, talking, working and doing, but are asleep to our true identity and the true potential that is within. Have you forgotten who you are in Christ? Have you dozed off for a moment and fail to see you as God has made you? Well, here’s the alarm for today: Get up now! Awaken to your true greatness in Jesus Christ! It’s morning, rise and shine!
This is a much-needed reminder today that you were not born to be a victim. You are made in the image and likeness of the Great God—you are designed for victory. I didn’t just make that up, God said so! Will you believe it? Will you embrace it and walk in it from today?
You were made to have dominion. The cares of this life, the issues you go through, the challenges you meet and even the situations you create are not supposed to be your identity. You are God’s special creation and in Him, you will always be valuable and will always have purpose!
