At the 2019 UHURU International PowWow Women Leaders and Discipleship Training conference we studied how we were created in the image of God. It was wonderful to discover the only thing that matters on this earth is how God sees us! The scrutiny and judgment of others is irrelevant to our design and purpose for being created.
You are fearfully and wonderfully made…
Who am I, Why am I here? What is my purpose for being here?
As you most likely know, we are seeing epidemic identity issues that are causing crisis, trauma and terror everywhere. Healing mankind’s broken relationship with God is the only way these issues can be resolved. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. There is no other way to solve the problem of having a broken identity.
Scripture tells us; “Once you had no identity as a people; now you are God’s people. Once you received no mercy; now you have received God’s mercy.” I Peter 2:10
We also learned when Adam and Eve sinned, their relationship, plan and purpose in the earth and with God was shattered and broken.
Our identity is found in covenant. ~Kathy Behm
But we also learn that after Adam and Eve sinned, God made a covenant with them to redeem them from their sin. The first lamb was slain at the foundation of the world. God’s love and mercy and redemption plan began. Then the lamb of God, Jesus was sacrificed on the cross to die for the sins of the world. This covenant was made and stands available for any who will believe and receive.
Through salvation, God has also restored an individual’s identity, plan and purpose in the earth, for those who are born again. This is why we used image and identity as our first teaching in our Freedom PowWow.
Once we know, believe and understand that God created us in His image; then we can begin to walk upright, knowing He will direct our steps toward His plan and purpose for our lives.
We become new creatures and supernatural beings with an eternal purpose. God’s Kingdom will never be conquered or pass away. We will reign with Him forever.
Knowing and walking in this; “It is for freedom that Christ sets us free.”Galatians 5:1
God gives us free will because He doesn’t believe in making His people be robots or slaves. If you are a skeptic about God, I’m asking you to stop and just imagine for one moment that you were created by God and made in His image. As your creator, He has a special reason He created you.
He will reveal why and for what purpose you were created if you will ask Him to show you. It doesn’t matter what you have done, where you are or how you feel about yourself, it doesn’t change how God feels about you. He wants you to know Him.
It is wonderful, marvelous and forever!
Judith McNutt says,
“Jesus demonstrated a solid identity: he knew he had come from the Father, he knew that God had put all things under his authority, and he knew he was returning to the Father. If we, too, know these three things – that we were created by God, that he has a purpose for us, and that, when it is time, he will call us home to him – then we experience our God-given identity and the assurance that we truly belong in his family – in his kingdom.”
You are One of God’s Treasures,
