An Image of Potential

by Lesley Cartwright

When we discover God’s original idea for our lives, we will also discover that we were created to be and do more than we think at this point in time. Not only are we ambassadors who have been deployed into this earth to colonise the planet and spread God’s Kingdom influence, but we are also created in God’s image – His true nature and likeness.

Let’s look at Gen 1:26-28 in the Message Bible

26-28 God spoke: “Let us make human beings in our image, make them reflecting our nature So they can be responsible for the fish in the sea, the birds in the air, the cattle,And, yes, Earth itself, and every animal that moves on the face of Earth.” God created human beings; he created them godlike, Reflecting God’s nature. He created them male and female. God blessed them: “Prosper! Reproduce! Fill Earth! Take charge! Be responsible for fish in the sea and birds in the air, for every living thing that moves on the face of Earth.” 

We have been given God’s image, His authority and a mandate to take charge! We are to manage the earth and rule over it. As long as we are doing what we have been ordained to do, we are fulfilling our potential. What is God calling you to do today? He promises that blessings will always follow your willingness and obedience (Isaiah 1:19).
