As I write this letter, I know that this may come off as a surprise, but I refuse to be ignorant about the God I serve. When you ask someone to define God, most of the time a person will give you a description. We say God is the Supreme Being, the creator of heaven and earth. Yes God is all of these things and more, but I said all of that to help you understand that the first thing you must know God is not a name it is a description. God needs nothing to exist because he is completely self-sufficient and self-existent all by himself. Let’s go deeper to understand further.
When you read the book of Genesis chapter 1 verse 26, it reads. “Then God said, Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all creatures that move along the ground.” This verse is powerful because God is showing you who you are. If you go back and read the book of Genesis EVERYTHING God created he spoke to that thing. For example Genesis chapter 1 verse 11 it reads “Then God said, let the land produce vegetation: seed bearing plants trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds. And it was so.” God spoke to the land, and it produced. In another verse, God spoke to the waters, and it produced. There is something that you must understand, and that is wherever something comes from it must be sustained by that environment. Fish need water to survive; plants need dirt to survive. Now read Genesis chapter 1 verse 26. God was speaking to himself when he said Let us make mankind. You need God to survive. Wow, this is the kind of God we serve.
I know you maybe still wondering about being a god. If you would read Psalm 82 verse 1, it says. “God presides in the great assembly; he renders judgment among the “gods.” God is presiding over the gods and who are the gods you and I. Let me show you in Psalm chapter 82 verses 5-6 it reads. “The gods know nothing; they understand nothing. They walk about in darkness; all the foundation of the earth are shaken. I said You are gods; you are all sons of the Most High.” It’s time for you to take your position. It’s time to know who you are. You are the sons of the Most High God.
