WORD24/7 INSPIRATIONS FROM JOEL ASIAW
IDENTITY CRISIS 1
Identity can be defined as who a person truly is or originates from irrespective of what happens to him or her.
If a person fails to recognize and accept who he or she is,they are suffering from a crisis.This crisis may come as a results of lack of knowledge about their origination or ignorance about who they are.
God in His own infinite wisdom knew about the ramifications of one suffering from an identity crisis,so He gave man an identity before making them.
Gen 1:26A, And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:…..
Gen 1:27,So God created man in his [own] image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
Man originated from God,because we were chosen even before the foundation of the world. Ephesians 1:4
Been made in God’s image also meant we were just like God.God was our prototype.
God is a Spirit and the people He made to be like Him have His fullness as spirit beings.
Unfortunately, Man never heard God saying,”Man,you are made in my image and you are just like me”.
In Genesis 1:28-30,God after creating man spelled out his role as owners with stewardship responsibilities,to take full dominion and authority over creation.
But man was ignorant about been in the image of God,because they had no knowledge about what God had said about them before creating them.
This led to an identity crisis which further led to the most tragic incident to have ever happened in the history of this world.
It’s paramount to note that,there was a being who God specially created as the most handsome being God ever made. He loved to be glorified just like God,so he wanted to be like God.In wanting to be like God,he was cast down from heaven. This guy who is an unbending bullheaded being was not in agreement with God making a being to be like God and giving them what he desired freely.
So this guy whose name is the old serpant A.k.a Lucifer the devil decided to make sure that these beings loose that authority and right to be like God.
How did he do this?
He knew Adam and eve suffered from an identity crisis,so he was inspired to put a halt to their reign as gods on the earth.
