Co Creators With God

When Genesis 1:26 reports God as saying “let us make man in our image, after our likeness”, many mistakenly think those two words refer to the same thing. Not so. God made us in His image meaning that we have a physical image that is a reflection of His spiritual image. He also made us in His likeness meaning that we are like God. How? God creates with His words. He speaks of things that be not and they become. He gave man this creative ability such that man speaks and it comes to being. The difference is that God is a spirit thus He operates in simultaneous time such that His words immediately take form. However, humans live in Chronological time such that our words only take form in the process of sequential time not immediate time. If then we want positive things to happen to us and around us, we must speak only positive things about ourselves and our environment. Never use negative words even if it is only to describe things. Describe negative things positively. For instance, if your head aches, don’t say ‘I have a headache’, say instead ‘I will soon feel better’. That way, you have responded to negativity instead of reacting to it.
