Psalms 8:4-6 what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him? you made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honour. you made him ruler over the words of your hands; you put everything under his feet
I guess most of the times we like to look down upon ourselves and think that we don’t matter or amount to anything. If there is one thing that most people struggle with, is self confidence, self love, self acceptance. God who is Holy and Loving made us into His own image, we are not like animals who when they die, their story ends there, we have a body, a spirit and a soul. When God made man, He was thoughtful, mindful, creative, I mean when you look at your body, don’t you see creativity? that every part of your body joins with the others, and everything works in synchronisation. God gave us the power and authority to be incharge of everything here on earth, man was made the master. As if that was not enough, when He saw that the world was evil and corrupt, He sent His only Son to come and die for us, on the cross. Now, during those days, when someone was put to death through crucifixion, it was a very shameful thing, because, these were people, who were the worst in the society. Yet, as shameful as it was, Jesus took up the cross, carried it and was crucified. When He said, “it is finished,” He meant exactly that! He’s not a man to lie, or go back on His Word. He finished it all at the cross, He paid for our sins, He defeated sickness & diseases, He took away our guilt & shame, that we may come directly to Him.
May we be filled with His love, pure love that brings healing to the body and soul.
