Created by Hand

Created by hand, that’s you, a living breathing human being.

Genesis 1:1-3

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth….And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.

And God said….and it was so.

The difference is YOU.

Gen 1:27-28  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.  And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.

Again, man was different! How did he make you?  The verse above says so God created man in his own image….in the image of God he created him.  But how?

Gen 2:7 then the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature.

We were formed or fashioned from His very hands. With everything else he spoke it and it was. He took time to breathe into man, from His own breath, His life.

So, from the very beginning, you, yep you (and me) were created especially for God, by God, from Him, to be with Him, to know Him and in His likeness.

So what is God like? Here are two things directly for us it says He is from Ephesians 4:24 says… and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.

Righteous means approved or proper justice. That means as you walk with Him, putting on your new self (the one He really intended you to be), you are approved and will get proper justice in your life.

Holiness means set apart, working heaven’s will on earth, godliness and beloved by God. Woah.

Yes, I looked them up so that the words we hear wouldn’t be the only ones we think of with those words. I was  curious about the encompassing of the words, their fullness.

In summation, God’s character is who He is. We can trust in it. Two of those qualities that are Him and we are created in that same likeness could sound like this:

You_____________(insert your own name)  are approved and will get proper justice for the things that have come against you. He is working out heaven’s will for you in process and you are set apart for that will because you are beloved by God!

Thank you Lord God!
