What is Man?
Man is the image-likeness of God. ”Let us make man in our own image” God said. It is the answer to the question “What is man?” You are the divine inhabitant of body and mind. You are an original creation of the Spirit of life. The one that in Psalm 8:5 the psalmist said “For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honor”
You are “ the salt of the earth” and “ the light of the world (Matt 5,13-14) “ I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High” Psalm 82:6.
These explanation of man should be enough for you to walk tall and be a success but the enemies of fears, worries, frustrations and ignorance are all negative factors that make you think you are alone and to forget the divine inheritance and thus miss the mark of health, well being, harmony and fulfillment. Yet in you lies the fulfillment.
This separation that brings about the missing of the mark of all that is inherently your inheritance can be noticed when the following occur:
- There is lack and limitation of things you want in your life, money,love,fame,success,acceptance,power,purpose,clarity,connection.
- You look for all that you are missing outside of yourself, looking for them in people, things, experiences, not knowing that they have no real capacity to give you what it is that you are looking for.
- You believe that there is only so much to go around, so you have to compete or fight for what you want before someone else gets it.
- You never have enough, you are always wanting more to fill the hole in your soul.
“Mind is the Master power that moulds and makes,
And Man is Mind, and evermore he takes
The tool of Thought, and, shaping what he wills,
Brings forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills:
He thinks in secret, and it comes to pass:
Environment is but his looking-glass”.
~ James Allen
The positive change is to begin to turn your gaze inward and become aware of the world behind your eyes. Ask God for wisdom as advised in James 1:5-6
“’If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind”.
Understand that the quality of your thinking creates the quality of your experiences in life. Cultivate the art of self awareness and self reflection and consciously make contact with the indwelling Spirit of God, the Source of all life who graciously made you in His image so that He can manifest Himself through you as His heir/heiress to His throne.
