And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. -- Genesis 1:26
God made man in His image, not to BE Him, but to be LIKE Him. This means that you have all the feelings, wants, needs and desires that He has, and you have the power to create and to love your creation.
In a way, this makes you a god on earth. You will never BE God, because you can only create with what He gives you to create with. He is the only One who can make something out of nothing. But, if you utilize your faith in HIM, and you ask HIM for anything you want, need or desire to create, nothing is impossible to you.
God also gives you the power to destroy, with a mind that helps you decide what you should keep or what you should destroy. This is a power that needs to be used very wisely.
Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods? If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken; (John 10:34,35)
So, as gods under the authority of the ONE almighty God, it is up to you to create or destroy your life as you see fit. Which one will you choose?
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. -- John 10:10
